CHI Good Questions: Black or White Lamp?

Pin it button
Ferha has a good question: "The question is "Black or White?" Should we go with the black antler or the white antler lamp for our bedroom? I always thought white - it's more soothing & easier to work with, but then the black one looks so modern & glamorous...

...We've just started this slow process of doing up our room & this month's budget called for lamps. Other pieces that'll make up the room is the GRIMSTAD bed from Ikea that I hope to buy some time soon (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S29857247 - loks way better than it is looking in this picture), and the Porto 6 drawer dresser from Crate and Barrel which we already have. I'd also like to incorporate this rug (that's on the bed in the picture) in the bedroom. I can't use it as a rug because it's too delicate & quite slippery.

So which one should we go for? Or better yet, should we dump the antlers & find something else? My first choice was a wire base lamp from West Elm that I first saw on this site, but they are now out of stock. If you've seen better lamps for under a $100 each, please let us know!"

Please let Ferha know...black or white? And as requested above above, other suggestions are also welcome...
