Anyway, I've been starting to look around for a floor lamp for our living room. We won't be getting anything right away, but of course I like to know what's out there. Giving myself time to flip back and forth between all the various options is part of the process. (The only drawback is it drives my husband crazy. Can anyone relate?)
The lamp will sit in the one corner where we plan to have a small side chair, right near the piano. I would like a light that is good for reading and one that can also be turned or swivelled to give light to anyone playing the piano. A few of the styles below have two or three lamps/heads which would work really well, but I'm not as fond of these. Certainly keeping them as options though.
While we're on the topic of the living room, here are some occasional chairs I've got my eye on. We'd like a pair of chairs on the one side of the room in front of the windows. The only catch is they need to be small, and that definitely limits our options. If money grew on trees, I would go with this scallop slipper chair from Oomph. It's the perfect size and oh. so. cute. (Probably a lighter colour though.)
Here's another quite affordable option. The only catch with this one is that it's VERY small. Almost too small according to the reviews, and I don't like the finish on the legs for our space.
This brentwood chair by Thibaut is also very nice, but I'm afraid it would be too big (and probably quite pricey). It's a stunner though. The scallop back and those bamboo legs! So good. (At Peridot)
So, the search continues. I know we'll find something that works in the end. For now it's fun to look around and explore the options. Hoping for one of those "fabulous finds along the way" I guess. Gotta love those.
