Whether it coordinates with your decor or not, some things get free passes for being eco-friendly examples of recycled objects that would have been wasted otherwise. Such is the case with this Cassette Tape Lamp by Transparent House.

Indeed, while this lamp, made up of used, superfluous cassette tapes possesses a certain '80s aesthetic, it's also disarmingly ethereal — and it hits me right in my green spot. I've got to say, for this: love it!

What about you? Does it hit you in your green spot, too, or your just-plain-ugly spot?
