We scan the deluge of used Ikea junk so you don't have to... And what did we find today? A not-quite-steal on this "pre-World War I Austrian Chandelier with pencil drip." Lends a bohemian air to even the most drab of walk-up studios. But if you go this route, you'll need to atone by getting rid of almost everything else in your crib. Why? Because Austrian chandelier fantasies have a strong morning-after effect, and must be otherwise balanced by an extreme lack of clutter. When in doubt, visit an exhibit of minimalism. On that front you're in luck. There's a major retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art -- if you happen to be in Los Angeles -- or you can go over to the Guggenheim which has its own thing going on.
