A well-designed piece doesn’t always have to come with a price: These five lamps will add style and light to your home without breaking the bank. (And no electrician required.)

Designed by Olle Lundberg, the Tral Wall Lamp does not require any hard wiring. With an adjustable head and a cream-colored, powder-coated aluminum shade, it offers simple sophistication; $16.99 at Ikea.
