I think lamps are the easiest way to show off your aesthetic at home without a) breaking the bank or b) taking up too much space. On either side of our bed, Peter and I have these funky vintage articulated desk lamps from my new favourite antiques store, 20th Century Design on Longworth Avenue in Charlottetown. Love the retro wood veneers and hi-lo light options.
This is my little blush-pink lamp.
And this is Peter's little beige lamp. (A little more masculine somehow, I think.)
