A vintage lamp or fixture makes your room more beautiful, and its light makes YOU more beautiful. Layer your lighting. Make a used table lamp part of a clever vignette (add a sculpture, a stack of books and a single blossom in a vase). A floor lamp turns a chair into a reading nook. A chandelier (be it atomic-era or Venetian) adds personality plus. Go ahead, shed some light on the subject.
