50's lamps

50's lamps have long been my absolute favorite home accessory.Furniture has come and gone, but my lamps will always be a part of my decorating personality. There is something about the anthrapomorphic yumminess of a classic 50's kitsch lamp that I just can't get enough of. I do however, have one rule of accquisition. Living in a 2000 sq. ft. home, I absolutely must have the perfect spot for the lamp.
Well, yippee ki yo ,the time for a shopping excursion has come at last!
My husband and I recently took the plunge and bought a classic Eames Lounge Chair and ottoman. My husband and I are an interesting combo. He's a little bit classic minimalist and I'm a little bit 50's tchotske kitsch. Where we meet in the middle ,creates a decorating style uniquely ours. Our Eames chair needs a floor lamp beside it. I am off on a lamp hunt!

wow, love your lamps, and how fun, both to own Eames furniture and to be able to go shopping for a 'new' lamp, and a big one at that!!! Thanks for popping by my blog, and lovely to visit yours.
