Lamps are SO much better than overhead lighting. In my office we've actually turned off all the fluorescents and brought in two big torchiere lamps, both to avoid migraines and to provide a calmer, more soothing corporate atmosphere that doesn't so quite resemble a laboratory of padded cells.
We also have five lamps in our living room because we don't actually have any overhead lighting.
Can I share a lamp that is actually mine? I adore it. Some guy made it and gave it to my mom, and she gave it to me. This is a crappy picture, and for that I apologize... But I don't have my camera, just my iPhone. And I had to lie it on the table to get a decent picture. But you get the idea.
I have a heart on for it.
(I'm attempting to attach the photo... As an experiment. We'll see if it works!)
