During these dog days of summer, try using nautical accents at home to conjure up a cool, breezy day by the sea. We noticed Destination Weddings and Honeymoons magazine recently featured fabulous bookends as decoration for a beach wedding. We agree, but no wedding necessary!
The Domino magazine blog picked two of our floor lamps in their Top 5 Floor Lamps under $200 roundup.
Making the list is a classic pharmacy-style tent lamp from Robert Sonneman, and a cool adjustable model.
Make a Top 5 list of your own by browsing our complete floor lamps collection.
Post update 1-6-10: Domino magazine has stopped publication :( and the above link to the lamp roundup has been taken offline.
Going over some of the new table lamp designs, these Hannah Montana lamps caught our eye. Fans of the show (you know who you are) will love these.
The teal shade design features a 3D image of the star. The guitar-shaped lamp comes with a built-in speaker. Just plug in your iPod or favorite MP3 device and rock out.
Now about those show tickets...

Post update 3-6-10: Sorry all, but these two Hannah Montana table lamps are no longer available. But not to worry! You can find other cool designs in our complete table lamps collection.
Our swing arm wall lamps were featured in this month's issue of Remodel magazine. Swing-arms are an often overlooked option for desktop task lighting even though they're great for this context. They're especially ideal for small rooms since they allow you to make the most of your desktop work space.
Builder Jeff Click, a member of our Lamps Plus Professionals program, sent us some great photos of a house he's just completed. The home is located in the SilverHawk development in Oklahoma City.
Says Jeff, "You can check out a cool photo tour of some of your fixtures we've used...I think that's about 80% stuff you all (Lamps Plus) supplied, inside & out."
There are dozens of photos online that really give you a great feel for the home, and of the mini-pendant chandelier lighting he's used. Check out Jeff's great work and let us know what you think!
The classic, European look in outdoor lighting always seems to be in style. This new design from the John Timberland outdoor lighting collection perfectly captures the style. It features tastefully ornate detailing in the top crown filigree and handsome clear seedy glass. Just the thing for your castle! Casa Aristocrat outdoor light.
Post Update 12-1-2012: We no longer offer the Casa Aristocrat collection for sale. However, we do have a number of designs that have the same European-influenced style, including the Casa Marseille outdoor light..
