These new lamps from Brenda Houston are relatively simple. The shade is geometric and plain. The base is standard. What will catch your eye, however, is the giant mineral in the middle. The balance of these lamp designs is a bit strange; they demand to be seen.

Brenda Houston hand-picked each mineral that is used in these lamps. The result is a naturally sparkling light source that will add drama to any room.

Implications - Consumers are constantly searching for home products that are different and unique because they want something that stands out. Taking a normal piece of furniture and adding in an element of eccentricity will definitely appeal to buyers because they still need function, but enjoy a bit of fun and individuality.
