This corner of our living room needed a new reading lamp. The table lamp we had been using was tippy (one little bump sent it tumbling) and it wasn't the right height for reading by. Also, the scale of this club chair called for a more substantially sized lamp.
In looking for a new floor lamp, there were several criteria that had to be met.
- One: it had to have a fairly narrow footprint.
- Two: it had to be adjustable in height.
- Three: it had to have a finish that would go well in our room (no chrome or brass).
- Four: it had to be good quality but also affordable.
We're very pleased with the quality, the price (it went on sale while it was on backorder and they granted me the sale price), and the style. We love the combination of wood and metal, and the organic feel of the linen drum shade fits right in with our decorating style.
- the leather chair is one we purchased many years ago through a friend who worked in the furniture industry; we got it for about half the retail cost.
- the pillow is from Room & Board
- the Danish teak table is one of a set of three nesting tables that had belonged to my parents and dates to the early 1960s
- the framed photo on the table is one I entered into an art contest at work (I didn't win)
- the library book is The Perfume Collector. I just started it. Have you read it?
- the painting on the wall belonged to my grandmother; I don't know anything about it, other than it is old.
- the little green planter on the mantle is vintage, probably from the 60s
- the stained glass hanging in the window was made by a regional artist
- the vase is wooden; I have no idea where we purchased it, but I see a lot of similar pieces through Crate & Barrel and West Elm.
