Here's a pic from Christmas this last year. I still love the lamp, and it has found it's way to the master bedroom, but it just didn't feel right in this open area. It has a lot of curlicues and tassels and what not, which made the console tabletop seem too "busy". (aside from the fact that it was Christmas and there's always a lot going on at Christmas)
I have a tendency toward "clutter",
and I wanted to pare down this space, visually.
I bought two white Balustrade lamps last year and have one in the Living Room and one in my office. I really love them and knew that was the direction I wanted to head for the console. I began searching for "possibles" after the first of the year, and landed on this one, early in my search. It was just what I wanted, but too pricey for me to justify for a lamp I really didn't "need".
LOVE that wonderful linen shade.
I kept looking,
and a few times each week I'd do a search for it on Google Shopping
by doing a search for it by name.
It's "Uttermost" lighting, Arcevia Aged Ivory Buffet Lamp.
Weeks went by, then I found it on clearance for almost half the price.
After talking to a rep to make sure it was in good shape, I jumped on it.
So here's the rest of the tabletop.
I have my sheep print back out and the lambs are lounging.
That face always gets me...
Now I'm looking for 2 more Balustrade Lamps for the Living Room.
I have my eye on a couple of different options.
We'll see how the search goes.
Did you survive losing the hour last weekend?
It has always messed me up for some reason.
It feels like jet lag to me, but maybe it's just age, te he.
