To celebrate our three years living in L.A. we went all out and....bought a new lamp! Woo hoo! Our old lamp was just so....college dorm room.
I was embarrassed when we had folks over and this is the lamp they saw when entering our abode. Sad, but true...
I especially hate the black cords running down it. "Why, Ikea?? WHY???!!"
Last weekend on a quick trip to Target, which is never quick and always turns into an all day event, Jeff and I were walking around the Americana at Brand in Glendale and jumped across the street to the much beloved Home Goods. Jeff doesn't even complain when I want to "pop in for a second" at this store. It is a mecca, a 'home goods' mecca. The thing about Home Goods is that they so rarely have floor lamps. They have table lamps aplenty, but rarely floor lamps. However, today was our LUCKY DAY. Sitting there, right in the middle of the isle were two matching floor lamps with....DRUM SHADES!! Drum shaped shades are the only acceptable lamp shade shapes in my opinion. (Say that five times fast!) I wasn't in love with the lamp completely, and I know never to make a home purchase without being so completely enamored with an item that you have.to.have.it., but I liked it well enough and we've been looking for forever (no joke!) So, without further ado, our lamp...
So sexy, so handsome.
It greets me each night as I walk in after a tediously long drive home from work.
Hello, lover. Oh beacon of light that you are...oh, and Jeff too...
So, that's it! We love our new lamp :) The oiled bronze thing it has going on now is fine, but we're pretty psyched to change up our overall color scheme once we've moved. We're searching for the perfect gray rug, so the lamp will most likely be given a fresher, i.e. whiter, coat of paint.
