We are big on taking things out context.
We are also big on using low priced items mixed in when the fancy stuff. For instance, this Hi-Light Task Lamp from PB Teen is meant to be kicky and sassy in a college dorm (it comes in pink and powder blue!), but we think that the Floor-lamp in silver ($149) would look stunning in a living room as extra lighting.
...At least that's what we plan to have our client/friend do with it.
