Jansjö Work Lamp
Our epic quest for an inexpensive bedside lamp has led us, perhaps predictably, in a roundabout route right back to Ikea (which is right where we started). This slim Jansjö comes in a kicky pink (as well as red, black, and silver), uses LEDs, and has a slight 5" diameter base which would slip in nicely with all the clutter that will surround it. Is it cute enough to win out in the great showdown against Lykta, which we have been eyeing for ages? Only a Saturday trip to the Swedish superstore—and an on-the-spot decision—will tell.
