Online Lighting Resources

• 24 February 2010

It's taken awhile, but I'm finally at the point where I recognize the major impact lighting has on a space. If this weren't true, I wouldn't have driven 12 hours just for the sake of procuring these lights for La Maisonnette. Truly, when you walk into a room, it's the lighting you notice first. Because stylish lighting tends to be on the pricier end, we often ignore this important design feature. I've learned that it's worth saving up for (even if it takes awhile) and that good deals can be had...especially if you do your homework.

Buying fixtures online versus in a retail store often saves a few bucks. Try these online sources and see if you can't find something you love at a competitive price:

Lighting Universe (everything pictured above is from LU; great selection; reasonable prices)

Circa Lighting (make sure you check out the web specials)

Affordable Lighting (if you find something you love elsewhere, contact them first; apparently they'll quote you the "best price")

Restoration Hardware (I have to admit I love their lighting...when it's on sale)

Lumens (be sure to hit the sample and clearance sections)

Unica Home (I find it easiest to "browse by style")

Y Lighting (mostly iconic/designer pieces; the best deals are in the closeouts + overstocks section)
