Balustrade Lamps

I mentioned a week or so back that I had found some new Balustrade Lamps. I don't really have a place for them in our current house, but I have an idea where they will be in the upcoming place. This definitely falls into the category of "good things come to those who wait"

Lamps like everything else in decor follow trends, and awhile back I realized all my lamps were really needing an update. Shade shapes are a big way to update, but my living room lamps were so tall that finding new shades that didn't break the bank just weren't happening. Over here at the new house I'm going with a slightly different look, so I've been keeping my eyes open for a pair of these.

Which by the way tend to be sort of pricey. In cleaning out my stash of "stuff" in the garage I located two actual vintage porch balusters that are very similar to these lamps, they just require the work to put them together and with everything else that's going on, that just isn't happening right now.

Anyway, I saw this pair back last fall, but couldn't justify them at full price. I just happened to come back for a visit and saw one of them with a half price tag. "Do you still have the other one?" Well, yippee, they did. So now they are waiting patiently in the studio for a more permanent spot.

Perfectly sized and with a wonderful burlap shade, 
they have just the right amount of distressing.

Since I only have a place for one, 
it's at home here in the studio on my little Italianate desk.

A few subtle touches of Spring are here. My white antique birdcage, a  vintage glove box, and one of my little lambs. I do love the warm glow that this lamp gives off in the evening; perfect for a little task lighting here at the computer.

And on a completely different note, you all know we are downsizing, and I'm having to let go of some of my furniture. My red floral sofa and the matching "chair and a half" and ottoman are going to have to find a new home. I have a Pottery Barn slipcover that you can see in the lower pic. It's not a custom fit, but does give a neutral option. (I'm hoping I can find it in all the packing confusion). The chair and ottoman also have slipcovers in a neutral twill. I hesitate to even advertise them on the blog, but thought someone might, just might, be interested before they go on Craig's List.

They are in perfect condition as we hardly ever used them. The quilt and pillows aren't included but a set of fabric matching pillows are. These would have to be picked up locally,(SW Missouri) because I'm not in a place to arrange shipping. 

Here is the chair. The sofa and chair are super comfy, but the set is pretty large. I can get measurements this weekend if anyone is interested. Remember, you would have to pick these up yourselves, as we're in the middle of this massive move. 

OK, email me if you're interested, with the tag SOFA SET.
 The set with slipcovers is very reasonable. 
REALLY reasonable. 
REALLY really reasonable.

(all the rest of the furniture is sold, sorry)
