Ever since I first laid eyes on a Tizio lamp I've had a love-hate relationship with them. I could not decide if they were too angular and 70's looking for my taste. I have been thinking alot lately about what I want my house to look like, particularly if I ever get these damn additions underway, and I think Tizios are actually pretty cool and would suit the style I'm thinking of for the future master bedroom (it would be part of the addition). The Tizio Micro went on sale at Gabriel Ross and after a few days of flip flopping whether I loved them that much or not, I suddenly decided I had to have them. I was going to save them and give one to Jeff for Christmas but since he is on the verge of destroying the blanc de chine lamps we currently use in the bedroom (very narrow base so very tippy), I thought I'd better start using them now. So here they are in the totally not up-to-snuff master bedroom (no point in really dealing with it since it will become a guest bedroom).
