Oh lamps. You can be so pretty, but you can also be so boring. And duct tape. You can be so utilitarian and so ugly. It's all the more surprising and pleasurable when two uninspiring things come together to create something that looks luxurious and expensive.
Erica Domesek created this faux snakeskin lamp using snakeskin-patterned duct tape, a basic Walmart lamp, and some glue and metal studs.
