This tulip-shaped table lamp brings a little bit of whimsical charm to your desktop or bookshelf display. It’s also an eco-friendly option, thanks to its plant-based materials and biodegradable packaging. Plus, it features a small built-in organizer at the base for all your desk accessories, and the shade rotates to direct the light wherever you want it.

And it has a convenient cordless design, so you can take this piece from room to room without worrying about finding an outlet.
If the $100 Urban Outfitters mushroom lamp isn’t in your budget, Amazon has plenty of affordable dupes that come close to the real thing. My fav is this Chilvane glass lamp with a striped diagonal pattern and nine subdued color options (white, clay and indigo are my 2 favs). It requires 2 bulbs up to 60W.
