Have you heard of Lamp in a Box?
Well let me just tell you; they are P.D.C.... Pretty Darn Cool. This one arrived at my house as a Christmas gift from the Lamp in a Box folks.
For the base there are several styles and the usual finishes. Mine is satin nickle.
There isn't anything extraordinary about the base, but that's because for me it's all about the shade.
I have this little corner in our bedroom where I like to curl up to read. I'd tell you that's with a good book, but more than likely I'm answering emails or reading blogs on my Ipad.
This spot didn't need a lot of light - by day the sun comes in the big windows, and in the evenings my Ipad has a bright screen. But at night it needed a little something something.
The bulb in my Lamp in a Box supplies the perfect warm glow for my comfy corner.

The shade was packed nice and secure. So secure in fact I didn't know how to get it out of the box.
Sometimes our lamps have the only bright bulbs around here!
Lamp in a Box you can design your own. As in coordinate your shade perfectly for the surroundings you choose to put it in. And the price is right for a custom product like that.
They have a ton of fun shades to pick from to match any decorating style. Or put your kids artwork on a lamp, a photo from your wedding, your dog, my dog, or design some subway art.
I had the option to design my own. But I concluded it would take me a million years to narrow down my choices so I opted for this vintage looking Ford Motor Co. shade. And I love it.

It's a pretty cozy spot to sit next to my lamp with my Ipad. On the opposite wall is a gas burning fireplace.
One of my very first posts was this time of year where I mentioned how talented Brawn is for building this whole wall unit, as well as our bed.
The dog photo-bombed that post two years ago, and Mo hasn't changed a bit, he still puts his face in every photo he can.
So next time your email inbox says "you've got mail", and it happens to be from me, there is a good chance I'm sitting right here with my extra warm yukon slippers, my Ipad, cuddled up under a blanket next to my Lamp in a Box.......
