Artichoke Lamp

I have a fondness for lamps, actually for any lighting fixtures other than a bare bulb.

Probably this stems from the fact that when I was a small child, our house was filled with incandescent bare bulb - too dim to use for reading, too unsightly to inspire creativity. Fortunately, we switched to flourescent lights, but again bare - good enough for reading, still too unsightly for inspiration.

At home, I have several lamps - one floor lamp, two table lamp, three hanging pendant lamp and two Japanese-inspired paper table lamp.

My dream lamp would be the artichoke lamp by Poul Henningsen.

Need to buy/build a house and buy this awesome lamp.
