Chrome is where the heart is

May 1, 2015

Let’s face it – humans are just big, fleshy magpies. We love shiny stuff: gold, diamonds, flashy cars, fancy watches, movie stars. The glossier and glitzier, the better.

So why should lamps be different? Why are so many lamps understated? Why are they so afraid (as a friend put it) to say, “Look at Me. I’m a Lamp!”

I’ve found the shiny ones tend to sell faster than the more modest ones. So I’m never worried when I find a chrome appliance that it’s going to be hanging around forever. Nope. They find a home soon.

This means, if you know someone who’s looking for a stellar statement for their bedroom, desk, or foyer – or if you are that someone – grab this gewgaw while you can. You may not get another chance (or not until the next gleaming darling comes my way).
