Well it’s primarily because I hate the harsh glare of fluorescent lights, but I also love accessorizing my home with gorgeous lamps!
Which is probably why I have no less than 17 lamps in my 1,100 square foot apartment.
What?? I already said I was obsessed!
I even work by lamp light at work. As soon as I moved from a cubicle into an office of my own, I permanently cut off the overhead fluorescent lights and brought in 2 lamps.
It made an immediate difference and, aside from people occasionally teasing me about working in such a ‘dark’ space, I still get compliments on how nice my office feels.
What is your design obsession??
One of my favorite birthday presents EVER from my mom – a gorgeous red-corded lamp from CB2!
My newest lamp from Crate & Barrel – thanks to my sister’s keen eye!
The blue cording is what sold me …gooorgeous!
One of my bargain finds; I scored this lamp base on clearance at Urban Outfitters!
I moved this lamp to the top of the fridge when I brought home the new lamp and I love the added light in the kitchen!
This office lamp is actually the larger version of one I already had in my home and I love how it casts a glow over my menagerie of paper calendar animals!
Miguel and I made my second office lamp years ago after I couldn’t find a lamp I liked enough at a reasonable price! The base is actually a vase that I filled with acrylic pebbles in order to hide the cord. I’m pretty proud of it!
