Good design for not much more than the price of a movie ticket - that is hard to beat. We've been fans (and owners) of this sized-just-right table lamp for ages. It is the...
...Fado Lamp from Ikea and sells for just $14.99. We currently have two - one in the bedroom (shown in the photos here) and one on a side table in the living room.
The look is a little minimal, a touch space age and plenty mod. They have a nice quality of glow-y light through the opaque glass - we use ours with a dimmer and especially like the way they work on a low setting, although when cranked up to see our knitting mistakes, they are not a half bad task light.
Anyone else a Fado fan?
