Whether you’re renovating or moving into a new space, one of the quickest ways to level up your home is by upgrading your lighting options. And now it’s easier than ever, thanks to the many online lighting stores that make it possible to find exactly what you’re looking for without a trip to a showroom.

Ahead, we share 19 of the top-rated lighting stores for high-quality options for modern table lamps, sculptural floor lamps, crystal chandeliers, lighted ceiling fans, and desk lamps, all with a dose of personality.

The stock at West Elm is constantly updated, but you can always count on finding high-quality lighting options with a few quirky bursts of color thrown in, just for fun. We love West Elm’s lighting designs because it’s easy to stick to a color theme while switching up the shape and form of your lights from room to room.

Schoolhouse Enfield Plug-In Sconce

Schoolhouse takes classic lighting shapes—pendants, circular flush mounts, tree-shaped table lamps—and gives them a bit of a one-up with fun colors and functional improvements. For example, a simple wall pendant gets a convenient makeover with a plug-in functionality and style inspired by Shaker designs.

Globe Electric Company West 64” 6-Light Track Kit

The great thing about Wayfair is its massive selection. From bathroom light fixtures and mini pendant lights to table lamps and living room flush mounts, the retailer has something on offer. We lost ourselves (in a good way) among all of the track lighting—it’s time to finally say goodbye to that dated set hanging over your kitchen island and usher in a new vibe.

Much like Wayfair, you could spend days perusing the lighting options on Amazon. To make your search easier, zero in on a specific design element—like “glass lighting pendant”—to find a unique option at an affordable price.

Interior Define Mason Floor Lamp

If high-end interior design catches your eye, head to Interior Define. Though the brand is likely best known for its furniture offerings, you’ll also find sculptural options for wall lights, semi-flush mounts, table lamps, and chandeliers, among others that are sure to catch more than a few eyes. The desk lamps, some of which feature textured concrete and ceramics, are especially intriguing.

Your home’s lighting should be fun; that may mean mixing and matching various materials…or opting for vanity lighting with a fun, floral shape. Mitzi covers all of the bases, from simple sconces to pastel-hued chandeliers.
