  1. Great post and great photos, very good idea. I just love table lamps as much as you do, maybe also because I have a lot of places where they look great. I really love to read and I have a lot of books. And I think a lamp standing next to a bookshelf gives it some romanticism. Working for a writing company, I have to hear the same question every day on who can write a paper for me. By the end of the day, it causes certain fatigue and in these moments the soft light of the table lamp helps me to relax.
