We got this lamp forever ago when we bought our mid-century coffee table (that now has a new life as an ottoman!) as a bonus because the woman we bought it from was moving and trying to get rid of it. $10 was totally worth it for this giant beauty of a lamp.
It’s lived in our office ever since we got it, but it’s finally found a new home in our living room. We’ve recently done some lamp shuffling in our house (as you saw this morning) and when we removed the lamp that had been sitting here, the area looked too empty. This lamp fills the space nicely and adds a nice little pop of color, which we always love. Who knows if it will stay there forever – we’ll see if it actually gets any use, considering we have a beautiful arched floor lamp just a few feet away – but it works for now.
Oh, and about that shade. Its life on this lamp is going to be short-lived. We’ve already started researching our options for extra large drum shades, and hopefully we’ll get a new one for this guy soon!
What do you think – is two lamps by our couch way too much, or does it work?
