Changing Lamps in the Living Room

I thought I would treat myself to a new lamp that I didn’t have to worry about being a fire hazard. I have a lot of vintage lamps I rewire, but I thought it would be nice to have something a bit modern to spice it up a little  and changing lamps in the living room.  It was amazing how just by changing the lamps out made each vignette look completely different.

This is the lamp I have now. I think it’s pretty, but a bit fussy. It’s vintage  and feels a little fussy and the crystal gets lost in the corner with the dark shade. I picked up two from Homegoods to try out.

Nice, but I think a bit blah. Maybe too modern? I like the shape, maybe it’s the shade?  It just doesn’t quite work. I am not sure if I should go for ceramic or glass as a base. Having the lamp on the book also makes it too tall.

I don’t know what I was thinking with this one, all I need is a lava lamp and a black light. It’s way to modern and bright… I did like the shade pattern, but the colors are off.

I still kind of dug the white one so I tried it somewhere else. No go.
So I am back to brave the mini-blizzard out here today for the sake of decorating. Hopefully I can find some other lamp choices for the living room. I would like to highlight the vintage feel while bringing in a lamp that’s a little more modern in style and color.
