Table lamps are available at most stores that sell furniture or home decor. They can be purchased from high-end design houses such as Jonathan Adler, mid-range stores such as West Elm, or low-cost retail outlets such as Walmart and Target.
Table lamps are available at almost every possible price point. For low-cost options and modern style, look to IKEA. For a more traditional style, check out Bed Bath, and Beyond or Pier 1 Imports. To achieve a unique but inexpensive option, check out thrift stores and garage sales, where lamps can cost less than $5.
The prices for table lamps vary dramatically based on the designer and the store. As of June 2014, Target had multiple table lamps under $20. A designer like Jonathan Adler often has table lamps with prices over $1,000.
When choosing a table lamp, it is important to balance budget and trend. A classic lamp that will complement changing decor styles can be a good investment. A trendy table lamp that is likely to go out of style should cost less than $100; many mid-range decor stores offer lamps in this price range. For high traffic playrooms or children's bedrooms, inexpensive, easily replaceable table lamps are an ideal option.
