The finesse in the comfort catering and technology is constantly improving and this further adds to the car buying; the rising social prosperity being the fundamental reason that is driving the new car market.

India car valuation services are making possible these deals for ever increasing numbers of individuals and families who are using the escorts offered from these. Therefore such services have emerged as the necessary adjunct for the seekers of used cars.


Why India is showing up a fine boom emerging for the used cars?

India is known for the characteristic differentiation in the economic potentials of the individual households. The economy here is complex and employs the social strata from top to bottom. All the individuals are not earning high and fat and they constitute the middle and weaker sections of the society who try to make up their life and living in consonance with spending constraints. Car being a status & luxury icon in the society lures everyone. Those unable to make the heavy spending have therefore found the used cars concept as very much attractive. This gets more attractive when there is a fine supply of the good cars at lower prices. The upper gentries keep pushing the recently purchased rides down in this market because they want to have the new ones as early as possible. We therefore find that in India, there is good demand supply match in the used cars market and hence the segment is booming. India car valuation services are offering the escorts to the potential buyers and benefiting from the good demand.

Ellen DeGeneres Is Really Into Home Design—Here Are Her Top Tips


Who knew? Ellen DeGeneres isn’t just an affable talk-show host and beloved comedian. She’s also an extremely prolific home designer and house flipper, as shown in her new book, “Home.”

“I wanted to be an interior designer when I was 13,” DeGeneres admits in her book—which explains why, over the past 25 years, she has bought and renovated nearly a dozen homes. Each home was an adventure and an education, she recalls. Below, from her book, are a few lessons she’s learned, as well as gorgeous photos of her interiors that illustrate her points.

Neutral colors make the best palette

“I like neutral colors with stronger colors in art, pillows, or a nice throw. Big color statements on walls or furniture can be fun, but limit the possibility of changes.”

Get a chalkboard in your kitchen

“Chalkboards make a great, fun statement in a home. You can draw on them or use them practically to make lists or write notes. You can write something like, ‘Remember to put away your shoes,’ just as a random, not-specific-to-my-life example.”

Less is more

“When finishing a room, I find it’s often useful to take one thing away. I always want to make sure it doesn’t look overdone or fussy.”

Go vintage

“Vintage fabrics can help personalize your home. They can be used for throw pillows, upholstery on a headboard—even a dog bed.”

Let there be light—lots of it

“Every room needs more than one light source. Lighting can be harsh or insufficient if you just rely on ceiling lighting. I like soft, even lighting, and I think floor and table lamps are essential to creating the right mood.”

These 8 Lamps Are Some of the Tackiest You’ll Ever See

A trio of risque lamps from Japan

Lamps aren’t only the way we illuminate a room; they can shed light on our personalities, too. The perfect pendant or floor lamp can add just the right touch to your home’s decor, underlining whether your sensibilities are more industrial or rustic.

And then there are these lamps and lighting fixtures, which pretty much identify their owners as completely lacking in taste. (Upon reflection, we decided not to show you allthe most outrageous examples we found.) Purchase at your own risk: They’ll probably inspire would-be buyers to back out of your house.

Did someone behead Paddington Bear?

Developed by Suck UK, the headless teddy bear lamp is readily available on Amazon for the low, low price of $160. The value of traumatizing your children? Priceless.

If you really, really love your dog …

Thanks to U.K. artist Whatshisname, you’ll always have a present from man’s best friend. The pooping Chihuahua lamp comes in red or black and costs $1,684, while the Great Dane version will give your wallet the runs at $3,980.

Tell us how you really feel

A teenager’s woeful poetry notebook personified, this hangman lamp sets the mood for an enchanting evening of nihilistic theory and Lars von Trier films set to a steady background of deep sighs. Even if you do want this lamp, be prepared for another dose of sadness: Developed by Spanish studio EnPieza, this limited-edition Colgao lamp is out of stock. Perhaps it could make a comeback if we keep thinking dark thoughts.

The hair lamp

Apparently someone watched “The Addams Family,” saw Cousin Itt, and decided it would look so much better with a lightbulb for a face.

During lonely nights, the hair can be braided, curled, pinned, or pulled into a ponytail—but hopefully not set on fire. Anika Engelbrecht of Kassel, Germany, came up with the lamp design, and although it isn’t for sale anymore, all you need is a wig and a torchier lamp and you can make your own. (Disclaimer: Don’t!)

A very cheeky light

Smack this butt lamp, and voila—it turns on. Called the Slap It, this jiggly silicone night-light will run you $228.79, and it comes in a buttload of colors—10, to be exact.


Breast lighting fixture ever

The more the merrier? That’s possibly what designer Jonathan Adler thought when he came up with the Georgia Table Lamp, which features over 50 boobs in white porcelain. They can all be yours for just $495.

Leggy maid lamps

The line between playful and creepy furnishings is razor-thin. These leggy lamps from Japan stand firmly on the creepy side. With one foot coquettishly pawing at the back of a leg and a light switch that is located—ahem—up the skirt, these lamps were spotted at the Onoden Electrical Appliances store in Tokyo for 12,600 yen (about $104).

Let’s get lit

This marijuana-themed floor lamp would get a pass in a college dorm room, but it should be snuffed out anywhere else. In case anyone doesn’t get the idea, the psychedelic lampshade is complemented by a pot leaf–shaped light switch. Available for $29.99 on
