What chair, side-table, lamp, and ottoman combo would you have to create the best reading nook? I have about $1,000 to spend on the best reading lamp, side-table, and chair/couch for my house. I'm a law school student (rising 3L) and I need some to setup a comfortable space to read at night. I can't seem to find a good combination that will make reading at night easy without making me too sleepy.
I just moved to a new home that has poor lighting in my office. I'm looking for a nice freestanding floor lamp with some powerful bulbs to illuminate the office or another suggestion on what to do. The office is used mainly for reading and writing my law related stuff. I'm willing to pay a $100 (possible more) for a quality floor lamp. I liked this one from amazon but the shade is plastic and I think it might look cheap in person. Points if the link is to something I can order online! Thanks!
Mortgage Filter: My wife and I are looking for homes in the greater DC area and found what we think might be one of the best mortgage deals in the country. Of course, you can imagine that we are incredibly skeptical. More after the jump. [more inside]
