Mid Century Buffet Lamp with Black Shades

Mid Century Buffet Lamp with Black Shades

Available in two sizes, one just over 26 inches tall and the other 35.75 inches tall, this lamp comes with a rocker switch but no bulb. Crafted from pewter-toned metal with a sleek marble base, it has a classic round shade.

Designer Advice:

We love the subtle mid-century flair of this lamp. Pair it with geometric shapes like an end table or a tapered leg coffee table for a cohesive and tailored mid-century modern look. Due to the lamp’s slim shape, we recommend placing it on a narrow end table, as it may get lost on a larger piece of furniture.

Ridged Candlestick Lamp with Black Shade

Ridged Candlestick Lamp with Black Shade

Measuring 31 inches tall, this lamp has been designed with vintage appeal in mind. Crafted with a resin base and a subtly distressed finish, it features hand applied bronze leaf accents.A rocker switch is included. The shade is thin and tapered. 

Designer Advice:

Made glam by the bronze accent detail, this lamp’s ridged shape lends it an antique look. For a charming vintage look, match your lamp with some braided bronze cushions or a burnished bronze rug. Either of these options will bring out the details even more and make your lamp appear timeless as well as far more expensive.

Geometric Table Lamps with Black Shades

Geometric Table Lamps with Black Shades

Coming in a set of two, these lamps have rotary socket switches, though no bulbs. Featuring a stunning marble base, each lamp has a geometric stem made up of six small spheres. The finish is slightly distressed for an antique look.

Designer Advice:

As they come in a pack of two, these lamps are a brilliant option for adding that little something extra to your bedroom. They will liven up a dull bedside table without being too overwhelming. Plus, we love the contrast between the three colors, and the black shade won’t look too dark because of the white marble base.

Simple Gold Lamps with Black Shades

Simple Gold Lamps with Black Shades

You can choose from a brass or nickel base with this set of two lamps. Each one has a three-way switch included. The spider fitting is covered by a hardback black metal shade. The base is also made of metal. 

Designer Advice:

This set of lamps would look gorgeous in an entryway. They will provide a striking silhouette for when guests enter your home. For the best look, you will need a larger and lower console table, as well as higher ceilings. That’s because the height of these lamps will overwhelm a smaller and more compact space.

Buying Guide

Black lamp shades aren’t difficult to style, but there are a few factors to consider before adding buffet lamps with black shades or black pendant lamps to your home.

Black lamp shades look their best when used as a contrasting element in a brighter space. When used in a compact room full of rich wood and dark wall colors, they can make the area feel cramped. To overcome this issue, choose a black lamp shade that features a gold or white inner lining and a glass or metal base to reflect light around the room, making it appear larger.

Try adding an oversized black lamp shade over your dining table in place of a chandelier. The result is just as dramatic but adds a modern twist to the room. For a more understated look, opt for buffet lamps with bell-shaped black shades and brass bases for your console table. A lamp at either end creates a sophisticated style, and the lamp shade’s darkness softens the bulb’s glow for gentle ambient light.

Because of how light dissipates throughout a room, buffet lamps with black shades usually give off enough light for bedrooms, dens, and other spaces where only basic illumination is needed. They may also provide enough light for an office if they are located close to the desk or workspace. Black lamp shades set the mood in quiet and mature environments, especially master bedrooms.

Buffet lamps with black shades are great for nightstands in a shared sleeping space. They may even be a better choice than lamps with light-colored shades because they won’t disturb others trying to sleep nearby.
