You don’t have to be part of an underground special ops team (wink, wink) to know that an M-16 will get someone to talk. Put one in your living room, and you’ve got yourself a conversation. Designed by Phillipe Starck as a political statement, the Lounge Gun Floor Lamp ($2,300) is meant to symbolize the relationship between money and war, and is available with an 18 Karat gold or chrome finish. The provocative piece features a matte black plasticized paper shade silkscreened with gold crosses. If you find the conversation lagging you can always lift up the shade and put a little heat on your person of interest, er, we mean guest.
