Many of us are used to the fact that the light in the house is something ordinary and carries only a functional purpose. When you consider the various possibilities of extravagant spending on new home decor, a “regular” lamp is not the first thing that comes to mind. When it comes to lighting, some people think about it in the simplest way: a lamp, a light bulb, a wall lamp, but what if we tell you that one of these lamps can be more expensive than the last Mercedes Benz… However, those who have the means and exceptional inclination, spend thousands and even millions on unique design lighting more than worthy of expensive costs.
Stop for a second and imagine what you will feel when reading a book under artificial lighting of a lamp worth more than 500k.
