Artichokes at Home
Why do I love the artichoke? To me, it’s a shapely thistle that looks delicate and complicated all at once. It is also welcoming, and apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks so.

I initially wanted an artichoke lamp for my office, but the lamp I was coveting was bought by someone else, and so I settled for a modernist take on coral instead. But I might still buy an artichoke lamp…
