Lava Lamps - Review


Lava lamps are back in style and motion! These inexpensive lamps provide a fun way to accent light a college dorm room. They are also popular with kids and teenagers, and can really liven up the bedroom.

What types of lava lamps are available? You'll find them as table lamps, torchieres and even 2-arm lamps. But still the most common is the traditional glass globe filled with colored liquid that moves and swirls around creating interesting patterns. How much do they cost? Prices range from $20 to $100.

Though the lava lamp is a favorite of the demographic mentioned, it is also taking hold in home decorating. In particular, lava torchieres with names like "Volcano Motion".

Why buy a lava lamp?
