If you have a chance to visit downtown Chicago, check out the lobby, or living room as they call it, at the W Hotel. The chic-modern furnishings pair well with the Beaux-Arts historic building. Most impressive are the two towering lamps that nearly reach the second story balcony. To get a similar style lamp for yourself, but at a fraction of the size, check out Jonathan Adler for fantastic lamps with just the right amount of whimsy (the white one is to die for). If these are out of your budget, try a similar look from Z Gallerie. For this one I'd recommend getting a different lampshade, or for you crafty types, try trimming the top and bottom of the shade with black grosgrain ribbon.
