Here is my inspiration reading lamp for my living room (brass reading lamp lower right). I have finally discovered that the lamp is by Mattaliano, to the trade. I had posted this image before on earlier post, and Victoria from Art House Design was very helpful in tracking down this floor lamp for me, she was very nice to do so. Thank you! You can see my post about my "Before and After" of my living room here. I have a reading area with two chairs and an ottoman that needs light.
Here are the three lamps below that I think would work. Top is from Circa Lighting. I think this lamp will be the least expensive and probably in our price range. The next two are very good looking lamps and are from Galleri Des Lampes in France, to the trade. They are really close to what I am looking for. Very simple and small. I know that these are going to be way out there in price.
While researching floor lamps, I came across some other lights that I love. It would be great to find a place for them all! I think I need several houses to decorate. Anyway, I am sure once I make my decision, I will stumble upon something else I like. Don't you hate when that happens? Just when you think you settled on something, up pops something you love just to confuse you more. I am not a designer. I am a "wanna be" designer. I love looking at rooms and magazines (tearing page after page), searching for that one thing, or studying how a picture of a room is put together. I think I am getting the hang of it. However, if you are a designer or are working with one, you have access to endless resources, and you are so lucky! That is one perk that I am lacking. But, I am still going to have fun and keep trying. It makes me happy~ (I do stress a lot too!)
*The really cool looking lamps are from Oly,Wisteria, and Galerie des Lampes
