Lamps

Himalayan salt lampMost everyone knows how lighting plays a crucial part in setting the ambiance of a room. Most also know how different types of lighting can affect one’s mood. While I subconsciously knew these things, these seemingly obvious observations were brought to the forefront when I noticed a former co-worker using a small table lamp to illuminate her work area instead of the standard office lights.

I walked from my section of the office, lit by (often considered, yet descriptively accurate) “harsh” fluorescent lighting; to my colleague’s work space, lit by the soft, warm glow of her lamp. My mood immediately shifted from slightly stressed and agitated, to calm and relaxed. I was blown away by sudden change of emotions all due to the different lighting between work spaces.

Why didn’t I notice this before? In all honesty, I don’t have a sufficient answer to that question. I’ll just cop out by saying that as a typical guy, I usually don’t pay attention to stuff like that. Ha ha. 🙂

This site showcases lamps which go beyond their primary function of illuminating a given area such as a small section of a room, or one in its entirety.

While finding the right lighting is important to setting a particular mood, selecting a source of light which expresses your personality is also important as it offers a glimpse into who you are.

With that said, I hope to bring you a good experience. If you have any questions, you can either email me at chris@illuminationideas.com, or post one below.
