    I have one light in my ceiling but I don't want to use it all the time. I'd like a lamp or two for some good, chill, mood lighting for everyday use. I can't seem to find any guy-ish lamps that I like. I have a black ikea malm bed and two drawer tables on each side of the bed. I'll either put lamps on them or a lap in the corner of the room.

    Any suggestions?

    the second west elm with the ebony base is nice.

    If you're willing to spend 2x as much on the lamps as you spent on your bed, these are also good options :mamoru:

    I almost bought those white square ones and the floor white square. They seem a little girly to me-- not sure why.

    And I can't decide if one on each bedside table would be nice or a floor lap in a corner.

    I think I might be getting these from Ikea today. And maybe the large one that sits on the floor. Do you guys think these are guy-ish lamps? Something makes them seem not good for a guy to me. I dunno why.

    they're cheap and made out of paper. that alone makes them guy-ish to most people :o

    If you do the rest of the room nicely, they'll look nice, but if the rest of the room sucks they'll look cheap :dunno:

    Right now all I have is the malm bed, two two-drawer tables on each side, an alarm clock, and fan. Getting the 6 drawer malm dresser today. :dunno:

    The tables lamps I posted above are glass. This one is paper...

    I like it and the fact it has a dimmer, but I'm leary about spending $70 on a paper lamp.

    I found these on Target's site. Floor lamp..

    And table lamps..

    I like them and they match the malm, but I'm thinking they're too "fancy", for the lack of a better word.

    Edit: Not sure why those two pics didn't show. But they work as links.
