Some home decorators enjoy the theme of crystal throughout the house. An often overlooked accessory is the crystal lamp when using this motif. Pier crystal lamps from Restoration Hardware are an elegant example of this type of accent lighting. I like the fact that they are not too ornate and that their shape is very simple. Many versions on the market are too decorative and distort the balance of a living room for example, where too much attention is drawn to a single accessory. Price: $299-$399.
