Gallery: 24 Gorgeous Green Lamps That Look Great With Energy-Saving LED...

 
You've probably heard by now that the much-hyped light bulb phase-out begins this fall in the United States, which means it's high time to switch out any old energy-guzzling incandescent light bulbs you have for more energy-efficient options. Not sure which energy efficient light bulbs are best for you and your sophisticated design sensibility? Don't reach for that CFL bulb just yet! Light-emitting diode (LED) technology has advanced considerably over the past few years in terms of efficiency, durability, and appearance, which means today’s LED light bulbs are hands-down the best choice for design-savvy consumers who want to save money on their energy bill without sacrificing light quality or aesthetics. And because LED bulbs last up to 22 years, not only do you not have to worry about changing the bulb constantly and fiddling with your lamps – you’ll also save additional money from not having to buy new bulbs every year.

Wondering what types of lamps work best with the new generation of LED light bulbs? We’ve rounded up 24 of our favorite green, designer lamps that go well with low energy LED bulbs. From dramatic ceiling lamps and chandeliers, to floor lamps, task lamps and table lamps, read on for our top green lighting fixtures.

    I love the wall lights. Great if you don’t have a ton of space but need more focused light.

    I’m definitely partial to the soda can lamp! But, really, they’re all beautiful.

    Huge Greypants fan, but it may have to do with the fact that they studied architecture. I’m biased.

    very cool ideas. I wish my place had room for the coffee stirrer or the soda tab lamps.
