Garland metal light shade, designed by Todd Boontje (from lumens.com, $69), draped over a Kvintett ceiling lamp (IKEA, $20). 

I left off the glass shade the IKEA lamp came with and used a globe light blub + the Garland instead.  Best part about this ceiling light is that it has a retractable cord, so I can vary the height of the lamp.

Mike: I think this lamp will mesh nicely with your idea of painting the wall surface of the dining room.  Light, warm gray?

Mike’s place is a monument to heterosexuality.

I appreciate that validation. Hello all. Allen, I think you have enough grey in your place. How about another color?

This lamp looks great. I’d love to see it in a view from the couch in a larger context if you have that shot…

Yeah looks good. A warm grey might work… I think it’ll look really, really even more awesome when you paint that lil’ chunk o’ wall.
