This Soho Lamp($24.99, closeout) from JC Penney is actually sold in the kids and teen section, but I think it would look great in a modern, adults-only bedroom. Put one of these on each side of your bed and your room will be instantly styled. Although the Soho doesn't have the cool gourd-like shape of the Mercury Glass lamp, the chrome finish could easily have someone mistaking this for the Mercury's skinnier sister. It also has a much skinnier price tag, since it's over $300 cheaper.
The Soho Lamp comes with a 9-inch white linen shade and the entire lamp measures in at 24 inches tall. Since you can get two of the Sohos for $50, I'd consider finding a prettier shade to make this lamp really pop.
