My love for
paint chocolate cardigans lamps runs as deep as Carrie Bradshaw’s love of shoes. I am incapable of ignoring the lamp section, in any store! I especially love finding lamp treasure in unexpected places. And in my geeky off-time, I play musical lamps in my home. You may recall the most recent Living Room lamps were gold with black drum shades. I never really loved them in this room. Too tall, dark and handsome heavy in front of the bookshelves.
But after we got new chairs, I discovered I really loved them in the Dining Room!
Which meant the shorter urchin lamps….
Moved to the Living Room. Where they looked like lamps in a whack-a-mole game, with only the tops visible.
Something in between those two sizes was needed, and as luck would have it, I found three great options! I don’t want to cloud your opinion, so I’ll hold off telling you where. Each is still attached to the package so Rita Return can do her thang once a decision has been made, so just disregard the box under each.
Previous Lamp-A-Looza posts revealed your adoration of lamps, so you get to help me choose! (Because you know I’m decision-making-stunted.) First up are the clear stacked balls TWSS. I like that they don’t detract from the room, but the bases are a bit puny, they are a tad too short, and I have a similar lamp in Babygirl’s Room.
|Disregard the carpet cleaner in the corner and the urchin lamps on the floor. I couldn’t be bothered to move them.|
Next on your ballot are the mossy green gourd lamps. Good sized base and height, and the color pulls from the pillows, rug and wingchair.
|Ignore the wreaths, too. I’ve since taken them down.|
And finally for your consideration, the smoky blue gourds. Good sized base and height, and the color pulls from the pillows, sofa, rug and armoire.
It’s a tough choice, right?! I really like each for different reasons.
And the shopping spot of these surprise treasures…..Lowes! Yep, who knew?! Each base (lampshade not included) is less than $25. Can’t beat that with a stick.
