Winter Lighting

Irwin Weiner ASID - If you want to add a seasonal lighting accent to any room - but this would be particularly magical in a teen or child's bedroom - consider the Snow Spike lamp from Light of Mind, a Polish accessories company.

They feature do-it-yourself, put-together lighting shades made from heat-resistant plastic (but still use cooler and safer bulbs - you know the drill) that look stylish on a simple swag bulb cable. I tried to find a supplier outside of Poland, but was unsuccessful (let me know if you have better luck); in the meantime, you'll need to order direct from the manufacturer. The following video shows you how the snowflakes are put together to form an intricate shade that celebrates the season.
