Friends, I need lamps. I’ve been looking for lamps for a couple of days now and my two conclusions thuafar are a) there are millions of different sorts of lamps and b) most of them are horrible. So tell me, where did you get your lamps? Would you recommend them? Any dream lamps on your Pinterest/whatever?
FAO joke answer crew: by all means do your thing, but you’re really going to have to work to top some of the monstrosities I’ve seen on sale (apparently in earnest). The two prevailing lamp trends at the moment appear to be monkeys and antlers.
Had started Googling this to see if it was a fancy lamp shop before realising the joke.
what kind of lamp?
I’ve got some really cool lamps, they look like Jupiter. Might take a photo when I’m home, if you’re lucky.
they look like this but nowhere near as detailed
weirdly i am also in the market for a lamp
specifically for reading in bed. is a reading lamp different from a normal lamp? who knows
Can’t beat a nice anglepoise - if it’s good enough for Pixar…
I like that, although we already have a celestial globe (don’t ask) so those might look like we were pursuing a theme.
I have one of these as my bedside lamp:
Why is it that when you say you want to lamp someone that people know you mean you want to hit them?
Do you know what I did when I needed a lamp
I got a cheap but nice brass stand thing from a junk shop, that had a horrible shade
Then I went to another shop and got a much nicer shade for it
you may now kiss the bride
