in reply to (OT) Does anyone know of a common object repository?

I'd suggest OpenCyc, but http://sw.opencyc.org/ seems to be down right now. :-(

There is UMBEL too, which gives you classes with subclass/superclass relationships, but not a list of properties you might associate with a lamp. e.g. http://umbel.org/umbel/rc/FloorLamp.rdf.

The Schema.org ontology (here in RDF) is quite well-curated, but not extensive enough to have a specific class for lamps - the closest appears to be its "Product" class.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    Thanks for all the feedback!

    Looks like their are several promising projects doing this sort of thing (at some level).
    A WordNet type of approach looks interesting (and complex). UMBEL might be on the right track.
