Barking Mad for this Lamp!

It's no secret that I love dogs more than the average person.

It's also no secret that I have a major design crush on Ms. Abigail Ahern.

When you put those two together, it results in these beautiful lamps designed by Ms. (or Mrs. - I dunno) Ahern herself!

I know they are quite - odd - but I am seriously in love with these lamps!!

I love how these look a little like "grandma" with the over-the-top shades, but I think that just makes these even better!  I mean, a bulldog with a huge lace shade on his head?  Preposterous!!

This is 100% my design style - I love pieces that make you do a double-take.
A greyhound on a table with a lampshade on his head?  Now that's a conversation piece.

Whether you like these or not, you must agree - they are conversation starters.  :o)

I happen to know someone traveling to London next year and I am definitely going to start saving my dollars for one of these lamps! 
(wish I had a clue how much they cost)

What do you think?  Horribly atrocious, or kind of cute?
