I Finally Found A Lamp I Love

For some people it seems so easy, but I think lamps are hard.  I have looked and looked and even bought three lamps to only take them back.  They just didn't work.  I finally found one that I love.



I love the mosaic marble base and the colors are so pretty.


There wasn't anything wrong with the brass one I have been using, I just wanted a change.


 The brass band on the shade adds a little extra touch of glam to the lamp.


 I think it is a nice addition to the room.


                                 So, what do you think?  Do you like to change out lamps too?

P.S. Thanks for all the input regarding adding trim to my lampshades.  I opted not to since this lamp has a brass band around the bottom.  It just looked like a lot of bands all of a sudden.  I have ordered two new lamps to replace the white ones by the sofa, so we'll see if I change my mind and add the trim afterall.

  6. Very pretty lamp! My thing is lampshades - hard to find good ones, even harder to find them not crazy expensive!

  7. I thinks it's a perfect update! I agree, I'm very picky about lamps and it can take forever to find a great one!

  8. Looks like a perfect choice! I've noticed you've been adding a little more contemporary feel to your look. I bet you can't wait for those wood floors to go down! We had a section of our house done in the 90's and they brought the wood in to "acclimate" for several days before installing it (it was later winter though- no 100+ temps!). I would love to do our whole place in wood- just can't muster up that much money yet!

  11. Great choice. I love the way the mosaic tiles pick up the brown tones of the table and chair. I also love the white dog statue and everything else on the table. Really a nice vignette.

  19. You are right, getting the "lamp you love" can be difficult. You've definitely found a beauty though. I also like how you've accessorized the space below it. Your pics with the brown leather chair, throw and pillow beside the table with the new lamp look magazine-worthy!

  22. Very pretty, Marty! A different look to from the brass one. My problem is I see too many lamps that I DO like, which makes decision making a bit challenging for me!
