Mid-Century Modern Lighting to be exact.

And it’s also #2 on our countdown.

To recap, this week we’re featuring a series of posts on the hottest design trends for 2011 and giving you some ideas on how to include them in your nursery or toddler bedroom.

Mid-Century Modern lamps are “characterized by simple lines and a fun space-age feel. In general, these lamps are geometric, with globes, hourglasses, and rings being the dominant shapes.”

So basically, any lamp that looks like you’d see it in Mad Men.

I love rooms that can successfully combine different styles. Mid-Century Modern lamps are the accessory to do just that!

1.- Brookhaven Home Table Lamp in Chrome (Set of 2), $99.

2.- Cooled Globes Lamp by Anthropologie, $298.

3.- Lights Up! Woody Table Lamp, $154.

4.- Mod Ceramic Table Lamp, Gunmetal Black / Fabric Shade, $74.96.

5.- KULLA floor lamp from Ikea, $89.99.

*** We’ve already covered mirrored accents (trend #5), typography (trend #4) and storage art (trend #3).***
