whole lotta lamp

maison21 was out doing a little xmas shopping (you know, doing our part to keep the economy running and all) and we wandered past the design within reach store, where we saw this desk lamp blown up into a super-jumbo floor lamp. so friggin cool, yet so not within our reach ($9500.00-ouch).

then we wondered right next door to bo concept, where we saw the same idea, but at a completely within reach price, at $729. kinda hard to tell from the picture as there is nothing to indicate scale, but it's a big floor lamp too. only half the size of the DWR version (71" tall vs. 168"), but for a tenth the price, we're totally cool with that. next time m21 has a client with a little boy, this is SO going in the kid's bedroom. if we had anywhere to put it 'round the atelier, we'd be using it in this little boy's bedroom already...

Oh I love those - they have the same or similar design at Lane Crawford here in fantastic colours!

suzy- it only comes in silver at the store i saw it- i'd love it in a bright color!

i agree- the first is TOO big for a home. maybe a hotel lobby or loft office...
