Looking for a lamp which is basically a display for a small statue

Jonathan Adler sells a small lamp that is designed to serve as a display for a small free-standing object (shown here with an Anchor). It is perfect - and we have the perfect object to go on the base- but Dr. Stewie really doesn't like lucite (the base is made of lucite). We've gotten nowhere googling for other similar lamps. Any suggestions? [more inside]

Apartment Lighting & Lamps, for Dummies

Lamps. Incandescent vs LED. Bulb wattage. ...Lumens? "Layering" light. Filtering natural light. I can decorate an apartment, but I still can't figure out how to arrange the lighting so that it's both purposeful and warm.

Buying new lighting fixtures

I'm replacing the outdated and ugly ceiling lighting fixtures in my place -- almost a dozen of them at once. Decor is simple and modern, with white walls and wood floors. I also really like Tiffany lamps and chandeliers although I don't usually go for ornate stuff. I'm new to decorating. Can you recommend some fixtures for me (with links)? [more inside]

Make my chandelier work: lights and electrics, LED edition

So I have this chandelier. It's a lovely mid-century piece but it chews through bulbs like you wouldn't believe. It was installed by a professional electrician and is wired into a regular on/off light switch on a standard UK lighting circuit. However, as you can see, bulbs blow on a disturbingly regular basis. My question: can I switch the regular bulbs over to LED equivalents and do these even exist? [more inside]

Please help me affix an Uno lampshade to an old lamp

So, I have this old, ugly lamp. In the hopes of improving the appearance of this lamp, while at the World Market the other day, I bought a new shade for it. Because I am a noob who has only bought cheap lamps in the past, I didn't notice that the shade was an Uno shade (in fact, the Internet tells me it's an Uno downbridge lamp shade) whereas the lamp has a harp fitting. But! The socket is also threaded, so theoretically, it should be pretty easy to turn this into a regular Uno socket, right? [more inside]

Young Lamp Love

Anyone know where I might be able to purchase lamps similar to the bedside lamps featured [see 4th picture down] in this reader redesign feature on Young House Love a few years back? At the time, the owner said she found the lamps at HomeGoods. Of course, since we're now a few years past that, there's nothing like that at my local HomeGoods. Has anyone seen lamps like these online recently? I'd be willing to pay up to $200 for something similar in size and style. Thanks!

Suggestions for lamps for draftsman?

My son is a draftsman and just started a new job. He likes this company better, but the lighting isn't as good. He doesn't have a lot of money to spend, but doesn't want to waste money on lamps that aren't worth it. I've looked for reviews on the web and here, and I didn't find specific information or personal suggestions. Recommendations for types of lamps/lighting, specific lamps, and the least he should expect to spend? What he shouldn't waste money on? I saw Ott lamps at Hobby Lobby tonight, but he said he saw an Ott lamp at Office Depot that wasn't very bright.
