Star Wars fans around the globe are turning a simple IKEA lamp into a Death Star.
As far as geeky interiors go, it can be hard to hit the balance between over the top and just right.
While the writer doesn’t necessarily agree with having to tone it down to appear grown up, that doesn’t mean low-key geeky additions can’t be cool.
Take a lamp looking like the Death Star, for example. Iconic in itself, but still obscure enough so your granddad or auntie who’s never seen Star Wars will only think it mildly curious, but not suspicious.
