Here's a piece of lighting equipment that is really pretty cool in terms of its looks. The Climbing Light, which is a lamp that screws onto your wall and looks like a large bug, has a silver top (where the bug's head is supposed to be, of course) that makes the light shine downward from there. So, I suppose you'll want to make sure you carefully select the placement - since you're screwing up your walls to install it.
It's an interesting idea, I suppose, and I'm sure it will spark (no pun intended) more ideas from lights of similar styles. For the country living folks, I'm pretty sure this isn't going to be hanging in their homes, but if you're batchin' it and have a hip-happenin' crib, then this is probably something you could splurge the $45 to get.
