Light is a practical concern in most homes, but it’s also so much more than that. The right lamp or lampshade can cast the entire room in a different light or serve as a work of art on its own. Each of the creative lamps on this list we collected is exactly that – a light source that doubles as a work of art.

Although we posted a list of DIY lamp designs a while back, not all of us have the artist’s eye, talent or know-how required to create awesome lamps or chandeliers like these. And there are a million different things that artists like these can do with light. They can color it, block it, brighten it or even bend it!

We know that there are tons more cool lamp designs out there, so if you know one that we need to see, submit it at the bottom of this list!
