Bottom Line Upfront

There are so many amazing Star Wars-themed lamps available out there. But I have to say, I love the Star Wars Luke Skywalker Lightsaber Floor Lamp because I’m a die-hard Skywalker, and I need lightsaber everything in my life.

Top 3 Picks

I’ve got 9 great Star Wars lamp ideas to show you, but these 3 wins in terms of being the best overall, the best design, and the lowest price. If you want to check out a few Star Wars lamps before we dive into the hard facts, be sure to look at these!

Pros and Cons to Themed Lamps

There are pros and cons to buying novelty lamps like Star Wars-themed lamps. I believe the pros outweigh the cons in most cases, and so will your average Star Wars fans, but it’s important to weigh your options before making a purchase.

Pros

  • Lots of high-quality options
  • Lots of official Star Wars merchandise
  • Many different characters and symbols are available
  • Lamps are a functional gift
  • Everyone needs at least a few lamps

Cons

  • Some low-quality lamps out there
  • Some fake official merchandise

What are the Most Popular Types of Star Wars-Themed Lamps?

These are characters, starships, and items that are particularly popular for Star Wars-themed lamps. If you don’t see your favorites listed here, don’t worry, because there are tons of Star Wars lamps out there.

Lightsabers

Lightsabers are begging to be turned into marketable lamps. They light up. It’s their whole gig. Since lightsabers come in multiple different colors (typically red and blue, sometimes green,) there are usually multiple options to pick from when buying a lightsaber lamp.

Death Star/Millennium Falcon

It’s very popular to make electronic novelty items shaped like Star Wars’ most popular starships. There are Death Star and Millennium Falcon waffle makers, popcorn makers, and, yes, lamps.

Buying a gift but don’t know much about Star Wars? Try this:

  • Fans of the good guys like the Millennium Falcon
  • Fans of the bad guys like the Death Star

Baby Yoda

In case you didn’t know, Baby Yoda has become one of the most popular Star Wars characters in the history of the franchise. This means there are approximately 8 trillion different lamps with Grogu’s face on them. I’ll talk about some of these below.

Types of Lamps to Consider

I need to visualize where a new decoration or piece of furniture is going to go before I buy it. This section will help you decide which kind of lamp is the best fit for your home.

Table

Maybe you want to illuminate your kitchen table or a study table. Think about which area in your home needs light to decide which size lamp you need. Do you need a reading light? Table lamps are perfect for that.

Desk

Have a bare spot on your desk, begging for something functional and cool? Desk lamps are small, so they’re also perfect for nightstands. Since desk lamps are usually less than a foot and a half tall, they don’t take up much room.

Floor

Need of a new large lamp that lets off lots of light? Is there a dim space in your living room, hallway, or bedroom? A novelty floor lamp is perfect for catching guests’ attention and providing lots of lighting.

Ceiling

Is your old ceiling fan about to give out? It could be the perfect time to replace it with a Star Wars ceiling fan that showcases your personality. Since ceiling fans are rarely customized, this would give your home a unique, geeky vibe.

What to Look for in a Star Wars Themed Lamp

It’s time to learn how to spot a high-quality lamp from a low-quality lamp. It’s tempting to buy every piece of merchandise with your favorite character on it that you come across, but some manufacturers of shoddily-made products are banking on that.

Size

I go over different lamp types up above, but here are some questions to get you thinking about the size of your lamp:

  • Where do you want to put your lamp?
  • How much room do you have?
  • Would it be better to have the lamp on the floor, the ceiling, or on a table?

Quality

If you want to be assured of an item’s quality, I recommend buying official Star Wars merchandise. There are lots of unofficial Star Wars lamps out there that are of great quality, too, but you have to do your research. Check the reviews of unofficial products online before making a purchase.

Price

Price is tricky. Small nightlights and desk lamps shouldn’t cost more than $20. Some floor lamps can go for over $100, but that isn’t an unreasonable asking price for a novelty product that’s more than 4 feet tall.

Check the prices of similar lamps and compare them to the price of the lamp you’re interested in. That’s how you can tell if you’re being ripped off by a crazy asking price.

Warranty

If you’re buying Star Wars products from a website like Amazon, they have a 30-day return policy on all of their items. Most similar websites and stores that sell Star Wars merchandise have a policy like this.

Authenticity

If a lamp is an official piece of Star Wars or Disney merchandise, the product description should state it. Don’t forget to check the tags, too. The tags and packaging should tell you if a product is authentic or not. That’s not to say there aren’t a lot of great unofficial Star Wars-themed lamps, too.

Bulb Type

Check the bulb type of a lamp before you buy it so you can be sure to go out and buy extras before it ships to you. Some lamps don’t come with a lightbulb, so have one at the ready in case your lamp gets to you without a bulb.
