Kick Butt Lighting…and an awesome giveaway (open internationally!)

This is a sponsored giveaway in collaboration with Parrot Uncle and the Mom It Forward Blogger Network.

More than mere thwarters of darkness, light fixtures are among some of the most decorative elements we can use to adorn our homes.

And they are one of my fave things to drool over! Problem is, they can also be super pricey.

Which is why I was excited to learn about Parrot Uncle.

This online lighting store offers thousands of gorgeous fixtures, from table lamps, ceiling pendants, flush mounts and wall sconces, in a huge range of different styles. Prices are incredibly reasonable (like, hold-up reasonable – which, as a budget-focused decorator, is incredibly important) though the absolute best thing is that they offer FREE international shipping on all orders over $50! Yep, this company wires all of their fixtures to meet the electrical requirements of the destination country and then they ship for FREE worldwide (oh, did I mention that already?). And there’s no risk because returns are offered for FREE too!

Here are a few of my faves (judging from my picks I think I have a soft spot for their industrial style light fixtures)…

Lighting Under $100

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12

Lighting Under $200

1 | 2 | 3 | 45 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12


With their inexpensive range of wall scones, economical flush mounts and discount home pendant lighting, Parrot Uncle offers-up real alternatives to those glorious high-end fixtures which used to either render us poor or hold us at arm’s length. It’s so exciting! I even had a little fun scrolling through my Pinterest pins and trying to find comparable fixtures to those in some of my fave rooms…

  10. karen says:

    Two Lights Vintage Industrial Style Iron Grapefruit-like Shade Wall Sconce…. Lighting LOVE!!!

  11. Jane says:

    I love the Modern Style Tapered Shade Wooden Pendant Light. Simple and stylish! I did think all the prices were really cheap and then I realised I needed to change the currency to AUD. :)

    • Ha, ha. Only a marginal increase though Jane. I was actually surprised by how little they went up by when I changed to AUD (not sure what I was expecting though I know the dollar isn’t super strong right now). Some of their lighting under $50 is so great!

  12. Karrie says:

    I am completely enamored with the Star Shaped Pendant light.

  24. Darla says:

    I really like the classic tripod floorlamp. Amazing prices if the product is a quality product. Have you examined the quality of their lamps?

    • Hi Darla. No, unfortunately I don’t have any of their products though I do intend to purchase some in the future. They do have some customer reviews on their website and most of what I’ve read is very positive.

  25. Nicole says:

    I’m not sure if it counts but really love the Edison bulbs and those prices are amazing!

  26. Tyesha says:

    WOW! The prices are amazing! I’m in love with the Pendant Box.

  27. Donna Marchlewski says:

    The Vintage White Fabric Shade Wall Sconce with Iron Candle Holder would be perfect in my bathroom.

  28. carmela says:

    the industrial pendents are awesome…trying to order but having trouble with the codes working??

    • Hmmm, sorry about that Carmela. I actually thought the codes were a little unusual (in terms of their wording) so I clarified they were correct with Parrot Uncle prior to publishing this post so they should work. If you continue to have trouble, let me know and I’ll contact them about it :)

    • Hi again Carmela. How did you go with the codes? I did contact the company and have just heard back. Apparently there was a problem (which is disappointing) though the codes should be operational now.

      • carmela says:

        No, they did not work but I went ahead and ordered anyway! There were only a few left of what I wanted and did not want to miss out…:)

  29. Sue says:

    Yes, totally kick butt giveaway! I love the hemp rope chandelier. I also LOVE that shipping is free internationally.

    • Parrot Uncle, you had me at FREE shipping – LOL!

  30. Dianne says:

    I love love love the Rustic Industrial Style Large Vincent Pendant Light! Been looking at those styles for s long time now!

  31. Lucilla says:

    I love the Industrial Chrome pendant. And thanks a lo for the international opportunity !!

    • So glad I was able to open this up to the world! Yay!

  32. Ann says:

    Well the Parrot Uncle link didn’t work for me, but I was able to do a workaround and visit the site by clicking onto a light fixture. I loved the industrial pendent with the umbrella shade on it. It has that feminine touch and reminds me of the Whitney pendent I have seen at Pottery Barn (that one has a mercury glass shade). I only wish the shade on the Parrot Uncle pendent was chocolate brown or bronze rather than matt black. I loved the price! $50.70, qualifying for free shipping.

    • Sorry the link didn’t work for you Ann. It’s going through for me so not sure what happened there.
      I love that one too! And I agree, I like the idea of the shade being bronze. Hmmm, maybe it could be spray painted?

  33. Kate Parmaku says:

    It’s hard to choose as there are so many beautiful ones but I particularly like the Tiffany Style Flowers Pattern Stained Glass Chandelier.

  34. Kim Yearry says:

    For this lighting giveaway, I like the Medium Size Industrial Style Pendant Light with Three Bulbs and Bucket-Shape Shade. I just realized that I am drawn to industrial style lighting fixtures! Love them and love this fixture! :-)

  35. Kandee says:

    Although it is sold, my favorite is the Tiffany Style Table Lamp with Petals & Grass SKU HF001-TR16147 because it reminds me of my Grandmother’s front room she used to read and knit in when she was alive.

    • It’s still available Kandee. I think you may have been looking at where it says “0 Sold” (as in, they are yet to sell one). It’s very sweet and all the more lovely for having memories attached to it.

  36. Mari Monroe says:

    Honeycomb sphere is my fave!!

  37. Betsy says:

    The lantern Pendant is my favorite…

  38. KATIE says:

    The 4 Lights Vintage Industrial Style Pendant Light with Metal Framed Glass Box would look sooo beautiful over my new dining room table!

  39. Alison S says:

    I like the 4 Lights Industrial Style Crystal Pendant Light .

  40. I just sent a link for the Simple Glass Shade Wall Scone to a client. I think it would look great as the sconce for the guest room bathroom (floor will be white porcelain penny tile; walls white subway). Thanks for sharing info about this company!

    • That’s awesome Kisha. I hope she likes it because it sounds pretty perfect.

  41. Jody says:

    Love the Modern White Ceiling Fan with Glass Shade!

  42. staci says:

    Parrot Uncle looks fantastic. My husband will love these prices!

  43. Olivia Juenke says:

    I pinned a few of the wood chandeliers… but I think my favorite is the 6 light with the rings on the bottom!

  44. J. Jones says:

    Practically ANY of their amazing Industrial lights – very impressive! One that would work best for what’s needed in my home is the Vintage Industrial Iron Chandelier with Pipe Design – gorgeous depth & design!!

  45. Nicole Bills says:

    The Honeycomb Sphere is absolutely gorgeous

  46. Brittany says:

    The 8-Light Modern Style Chandelier with Cylinder Glass Shades is beautiful and would look perfect above our dining room table!

  47. Sigfrid Pettersen says:

    My favorite is 5 1/2″ Modern Antique Brass Bottle Shaped Wall Sconce.

  48. Auntiepatch says:

    Dining Room Tiffany Style Pendant, 3 Lights Island Light with Bell Shape Shade and Iron Pinecone Decorations, 21″ Grid Bedroom Tiffany Upside-Down Pendant Lamp, 12-Light Modern Symmetric Brass Pendant Light, and Tiffany Style Wall Sconce with Hemp Rope Pattern and Yellow Jewels. Please don’t make me choose one!

  49. Kelsey says:

    I’m eyeing the Vintage Industrial Style Iron Framed Glass Shade Wall Sconce for when we redo the outside of our house. What a great site!

  50. Adele says:

    Seriously, how to you choose just one favourite?? They’ve got some amazing lights.
    My fave was: Large Size Industrial Style Matte Black Iron Cage Pendant Light

    • Shelby says:
