Looking for illumination? No need to settle for the usual brass-with-a-white-shade formula when it comes to lamps. While lamps have traditionally served as basic household furniture, they've moved into the limelight this season. Designers are offering lamps in a variety of colors, shapes, and textures, so you can creatively brighten that corner or dress up that side table.
In contrast to past offerings, today's lamps are expressive and individualized, allowing you to decorate your rooms to reflect whatever interests and hobbies you might have. Fond of flowers? Take a look at this cast bronze lamp with a painted glass waterlily lamp shade. Or how about a ball-based baseball lamp for the play room? The possibilities are endless.
