Let there be...lamp?

I've recently begun the search for a new bedside table lamp. My primary requirements for the elusive table lamp are that it is a modern style, goes with my black-white-tan-small pop of red bedroom, and is affordable (Definitely under $100, preferably under $50). Here are my top five picks so far.

First up, this beauty from CB2, Crate and Barrel's modern line (a personal favorite). Modern design? Check. Tan with a pop of red? Check. Price? $99, which, with tax and shipping, since there is no CB2 near me, the rose line lamp falls outside of my $100 max.

Next, we have another contender from CB2, the Paramount lamp. The Paramount lamp is a stylish, modern table lamp that is also well priced. I love the design, and, I must admit, the tap on/tap off feature would be nice when I'm trying to find some light in the middle of the night. Priced at around $50, the paramount lamp is a strong option.

It is generally hard to beat Ikea when it comes to affordably priced home items. This Tallvik lamp is a steal at $25, and since I have an Ikea nearby, there would be no additional shipping and handling. I like the minimal design, but I'm not sure if I'm crazy about the all-over chrome.

This Jonsbo lamp from Ikea looks like the Rose Line lamp from CB2, but at a much more affordable $50. I like the price, but I'm not sure I'm crazy about the shape of the bottom half, and I have to admit, I like the red cord on the Rose Line.

This final option is a little more...bold. I think that a lamp can be a great way to add interest to a room. At $60, this Art Deco lamp from Target is a lot of fun for a pretty small price. Ultimately, it may be a little more of a statement than I personally want next to my bed, but I can't deny that it would make a fun addition.
