Quirky Animal Table Lamps

www.shadylamp.com or ebay. These are finials that go on the top part of the lamp to secure the shade into place. If you are afraid of going over-board or want to ease your way into an animal inspired lamp - do these! They are awesome.

I've been noticing lamps lately being much more edgy, not so basic! I dig it. Especially all of the ceramic animal ones from Jonathan Adler, and the Glamorized Antique ones on 1stdibs. I just re-read Kelly Wearstler's book, "Domicilium Decoratus: Hillcrest Estate, Beverly Hills, California" and think that these Elephant Lamps (http://www.1stdibs.com/) would be amazzzing in her home! Her living room is so glam and forward. She definitely knows how to layer.

Whimsy is important. With life being dramatic and serious - your home should be your oasis and should be filled with laughter. If that be an enormous Giraffe lamp from Jonathan Adler - then by all means! Go for it. I love how humor is becoming a major design element.
