Cost Plus World Market just happens to be steps from my office, so on my lunch break today, I wandered over to check things out. What did I find??
Yes, my friends… that is a tripod base floor lamp with an absolutely HUMONGOUS shade. This picture does nothing to portray it’s scale since it was up on a shelf, but it is BIG. I’m going to guess about two feet in diameter (I was very annoyed that I left my tape measure in my other purse!!)
Anyways, back to the lamp… It’s so fabulous, there are no words. In the store, they featured the lamp with a natural fiber woven shade, but since the base is sold separately from the shade, you can customize it!
There were burlap shades, linen shades, and shades in bright pops of color. I was really drawn to the bright yellow shade, but I think a bold color like that is something I should think about – especially since it doesn’t exist in the room elsewhere. I love it in the store, but will I love it for the long haul?
Another thing that makes me pause?? The base is $115 – not cheap, so I’m going to sit on it for a few days.
The grey trellis rug, paired with the navy velvet and the grey blue behind the sea fans… and then I’m loving the idea of a striped cushion on twin x benches, and the creamy silk curtains keep everything else light and bright…
