Question ID: 781832
I am looking for some recommendations for the best places to buy
designer lights for the home on the internet.

IMPORTANT:  I am not looking for run-of-the-mill lights or lamps for
the average suburban home.  I am looking for stylish designer or
reproduction designer lights and lamps.

The internet merchant could be located in the USA or in Europe

I am looking for both a wide range and good prices.
