weekend score!

maison21 is loving his newly found white ceramic and brass, neoclassic urn lamp by royal haeger- we're guessing that it's from the 1980's (dot-matrix printer label underneath, so it's gotta be at least 20 years old, right?). m21 purchased this ginormous lamp to grace his new home office- the one he will be making out of his guest bedroom any day (really, it's happening- right along with the refinishing of the floors and the painting of the kitchen. swear.)

whether or not it ever finds a home in the m21 atelier, it's kinda glam, no?

As someone who can't imagine how it will look until it all comes together, what kind of shade are you planning on pairing with this lamp?

Hope you had a great weekend!

And where did M21 find this beauty?

things that inspire- if i keep that lamp, i'll be doing a wide drum shade in black patent with a gold liner- i like to follow the shape of a lamp, and this one is very wide. similar in shaoe to these at restoration hardware:

meg- it's my secret! (shhh- i'll tell you, but don't tell anyone else, ok? a thrift shop, of course!)

you know, I'd be inclined to go for a matte(r) shade and would fight tooth and nail for it - but b/c I think you are so cool, I'll actually try to understand why you think patent is the way to go. Ooops - guess I just admitted that I'm defensive about my choices....

I still like brass, but it has to be real. And gold liners are so glam.
