BRIGHT IDEA: It might seem counterintuitive to spend money on lightbulbs that are already burned out. But if you're looking for the perfect steampunk touch to add to a room, consider these repurposed factory bulbs mounted on wood ($72-$193) -- the bulbs are massive, eye-catching and definitely aren't be something you see everywhere else, unlike decorative candles that tend to dominate the coffee tables of Pottery Barn groupies. And when was the last time anyone actually used the light from all those candles, anyway? GET IT: And Beige, 1781 Florida Ave. N.W.
