Baby, Light My Fire

I have trouble sleeping at night. I'm too scared to turn the lights off, and leaving the light on disturbs my sleep. I tried using a night light before, but the shadows in my room bother me when I suddenly wake up in the middle of the night (yes, I'm a big baby). A table lamp probably will have the same effect, but I still want one especially because I like to read before I go to sleep. Table lamps are also a little bit brighter than night lights, so maybe that will lessen the shadows that loom once you're tucked in bed, ready for slumber.

So again, I have been trolling the Internets for different table lamps. Here are a few that caught my attention.

I don't care what they say about Pottery Barn! They have a lot of cool products especially this photographer's lamp, which is adjustable. This is a perfect lamp for boys too!




I love the combination of the glass and the light floral print here. It's so feminine!
I want to own a distressed lamp similar to this one. Based from the picture though, it's too obvious that the lamp is not naturally distressed, so if you can find a nice vintage-looking lamp in an antique store or a flea market, it would be much better!
Again, I like the glass base of this lamp, but it will probably look better in your living room than in your bedroom.
For some reason, this simple lamp caught my attention. I think I like that it reminds me of the Brady Bunch and Mad Men when I look at it, although both shows are set in the sixties, not the fifties.
Well, the only thing I can say about this lamp is that it's so very cool. I'm not sure thought if the light is sufficient enough for reading, but it's still an interesting piece. Maybe you can display it in a bookcase instead.


I like the idea of a ball jar as a lamp, but I'm not sure about the butterfly though. I think seeing the shadow of a big insect will not be too pleasing when you're about to go to sleep.

This is a very nice lamp if you're room has a gypsy theme or something very colorful and eccentric. At the same time, it will also be a nice focal point to a room where the the colors are muted and the decor is not too busy.
