Anyone who truly knows me knows how passionate I am about lamps. I think it’s because I’m not the biggest fan of overhead lighting. Instead, I prefer a stylish, powerful lamp, or a few, that can disseminate light across a room to make it feel cozier, homier, warmer. But also, I find the process of picking out the perfect lamp extremely entertaining. It’s often really challenging to find a design you like, one that’s the right size, and one that utilizes the right kind of bulbs.
