Guest Picks: Entertaining With Lamp Finials

Lighting is a designer’s best friend. It may make a room feel cozy, romantic or energetic with the twist of a switch. However, function is only part of their allure of proper lighting, as a fantastic lamp should also be a beautiful one. Recently, I have been adding classic finials in addition to all my lamps. They are a perfect finishing touch and come in so many unique shapes and substances: think Lucite, brass, natural and acrylic stone. Hilary Thomas’ colorful collection may be my new favorite, but there are plenty to pick from in this ideabook. — Shannon from I Love Your Own Crazy and Poplin & Queen
