Lamps with Personality

We all need light in the darkness, but the variety of lamps available can boggle the mind. Anything can be made into a lamp, if you can attach a battery or run an electrical cord through it. The lamps you display in your home say something about your personality, so choose carefully. Here are some I've taken a shine to.

The Abduction Lamp was designed by Lasse Klein and is not yet available for sale. Otherwise, I'd have one ordered already! The cow or a human will be an add-on accessory.

More illumination, after the jump.

I bought this Robot Desk Lamp by Holmes for my brother for Christmas. It shines a light from its face, and holds your pens and other tools in its adjustable arms. It was once in stores all over, but doesn't seem to be avilable anywhere now.
