Searching for a replacement for the plastic reading lamp left over from my college days, I stopped at the Stained Glass Store, where I found a gorgeous Tiffany lamp. Stained glass usually reminds me of being dragged to church by my mother, but I liked the natural light the colors exuded. The lamp had three different light setting, so I could switch between low wattage to read by or more intense rays to jolt me awake in the morning. Plus, I liked the history behind the piece—it had an antique feel without seeming too rusty. 300 Fifth Ave., at 2nd St., Park Slope, Brooklyn; 718-768-7964.
