Styled 5 Ways: The Iris Lamp

Embodying classic style and versatility, the Iris Lamp is a perfectly petite representation of mid-century design reimagined for the modern home. Friendly and bright, this cheerful light occupies minimal space while still creating a delightful impact. Featured as part of our latest Fall launch, we recreated a classic silhouette in rich earth tones making this fixture easy to mix and match. 
To celebrate its arrival, we asked five friends of Schoolhouse to choose their favorite Iris and show us how they styled it in their homes. 



“Iris is the perfect little lamp to add a soft glow to my new built-in shelves. I love its versatile form and understated materials. It fits right in along with my tchotchkes.”

“As soon as I saw the Iris Lamp's mid-century vibe, I thought it would be perfect in my husband's home studio. The blue is so unique and pairs perfectly with the room's dark walls and rich walnut furniture! I pulled in some greenery to compliment the color and love how the tones work together. I also appreciate the soft, ambient light the frosted globe creates. It's perfect for long days in the office!

“The Iris Lamp is so unique and surprisingly heavy! I love how you can adjust the direction of the light, which balances on the base to draw attention to a particular item. In this case, it highlights the artwork on our shelves - the perfect final touch."

We've loved adding the Iris Lamp to our home. It's elegant and modern, but also classic and timeless. I know it will be a staple in our home for years to come. Not only is it functional, but it's also beautiful to look at and feels like a piece of art on our credenza. I LOVE IT!"

“With its size and adjustability, the Iris Lamp is an extremely versatile piece. It’s minimal and simplistic in design, but bold enough to give a little punch. It works great on a side table, bookcase, or even on the floor to create some sculptural up-lighting. I especially love the stone base, which really makes the lamp feel solid, while also bringing in just the right amount of texture.”
