“Instructions for living a life: Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it.” ― Mary Oliver
As many interior design experts will tell you, lighting can make or break a room. But lamps themselves can also add a lot to a room, they too are accessories that can add character, style, or even make a bold statement. The easiest update is changing the shade on an existing lamp, an affordable update and something that takes 2 seconds to do. Try these sites for some interesting lamp bases, shades, pendants, and chandeliers like the ones shown below.
I also love the lamps from Jonathan Adler, the lamps range from the quirky to the sophisticated and sleek. Think Mad Men when Don’s in CA or in some of the design in their new office in NYC. Modernist, 1950’s/60’s vibe with updated styling.
