Lighting Up the Southwest

Whether you want just a touch of rustic flair, or pure Yippee-Ki-Yay, choosing lamps to go with your Southwest design is all about STYLE, COLOR, and FINISH.

Imagine gorgeous Southwest sunsets: Ceramics and resin materials in tones or rich reds, sultry oranges, and glowing golds.

Picture the great frontier, rough and raw: Copper and bronze metals, slate stone, nailhead accents, and heavily textured lampshades.

Reminisce a cowboy rodeo: Fence posts, gun holes, wooden barrels, and lampshades in suede or rawhide.

Pioneer the way with Tiffany and Frank Lloyd Wright: Leaded, colored art-glass lampshades and Mission linear metal bases.

Sophisticated and full of bling: Copper, gold, bronze, glitz, and glamour. Oh, so pretty!

Designer tips: Make sure to consider the scale of your lamps with the rest of your décor. And remember, the lighter the shade, the more reading light you will enjoy.
