Here are my new task lamps. I give them high marks for affordability, sturdy construction and shiny good looks.
There's only one wee tiny little problem. The light is terrible.
This is what marks the difference between real interior decorators and dilettantes like myself. A real decorator would know that you can't light an entire room with two task lamps. I don't know what I was thinking. It is exactly like having two flashlights nex to the bed - harsh and at the same time inadequate.
This means I now need more lighting, and something other than the Close Encounters of the Third Kind ceiling light we currently have (known in design circles by the technical term 'boob light').
Some of you may remember my affection for Lindsey Bond's place. Did you notice she uses cheapie paper lanterns as her overhead lighting? I'm liking this. But I've been known to be wrong in my likes.
What do you real decorator people think?
