I was out shopping on Friday and I stopped by a store that I am embarrassed to say I haven't been in in a while. The store is Dragonette in Los Angeles. It is owned by Patrick Dragonette, and they have a great collection of decorative items and furniture with a glamorous edge. I cam across this lamp which they make using pieces of agate.
I think it is one of the prettiest lamps I have seen in a while, and I think would work well in a traditional or modern environment. He has them using several different examples of stone, I like this one, but there is a pair of them with a black stone that is also impressive.
