AT Europe: Paris - Lampe Tour Eiffel Je t'aime

La grande dame. That's what the locals call it. And if you think that only foreigners adorn their side tables and mantels with Eiffel Tower reproductions, you may be surprised to see miniature homages to the great lady in many a Parisian apartment...

Enter the Lampe Tour Eiffel Je t'aime from 28-year-old designer Pierre Gonalons for Ascete. In black with an off-kilter black lacquered lampshade, it's a tribute to the city's reigning symbol with a requisite dose of attitude that keeps it from being too cute. Also available in metallic silver. €269 via Absolument Design. - Kristin Hohenadel blogging from rue Vieille du Temple, Paris, France. She can be reached at kristinh @ apartmenttherapy . com
