Handmade charm. It's always nice to add a little "human" touch when it comes to decor, and this Frida desk lamp by Perch design is a great example. There's a certain warmth and quirky home-y-ness to it. We love the little handle and the burlap shade (although it also comes in white). The big white dot adds both a modern graphic element, as well as a little playful character. It also comes in a bunch of fun colors.
We imagine this could also be inspiration for a good DIY project if you happen to find a great piece of pottery, which you could transform into a lamp (with a lighting kit and an appropriate drill bit.) Otherwise, this lamp is available via Perch Design's website ($300).
