Kathryn Emery, home improvement and lifestyle expert in Laguna Beach, California, points out that orb lamps are having a moment. “Unlike a traditional A19 light bulb, orbs can cast plenty of light 360 degrees, but in a fun, flirty way,” she says. “Trends come and go, but orb lamps have a familiarity like basking in the glow of the moon or sun. It's a shape we see every day, which makes this lighting a somewhat timeless home fashion."
Jordan England, co-founder of home furnishing brand and design service Industry West, agrees. “Orb lighting is simply being noticed in new and fresh ways. It's a classic shape being connected with different materials, and it fits into almost any aesthetic.”
To help you bring these stunners into your home, we shopped the web and found 10 of the best orb lamps a-round (pun absolutely intended).
When you want to go beyond the basic, this table lamp inspired by “nature’s balanced asymmetry” does just that. The dimmable globe atop a black metal post holds court as the centerpiece, while the metal mesh sphere can be filled with greenery (think air plants or faux boxwood) or left empty. It’s also available in a chandelier, pendant, and sconce.
