When it comes to decorating, I'm all about the pretty.
The texture and color and pattern and hue and patina and how it fits into a room.
The function? Ummm....just between us....not so much.
But this is a new year and a new style and I'm turning over a new decoration leaf. So when I went to shop for a new floor lamp, I was all about the function. I was intent on finding a task light for reading in the front room and I concentrated on the function and how it, basing my selection on what I was going to use it for.
And I found it!
And a little bit of pretty, along the way (but you knew I was going to say that).
I present to you the perfect blend of pretty and function with this wood surveyor tripod lamp.
It looks like a lamp Lewis and Clark might have used when they surveyed the Louisiana Purchase. The legs are a beautiful wood with brass accents and the shade mimics the look of aged linen.
The lamp would look perfect next to a pair of leather chairs in a library or study.
This antique brass pharmacy tripod floor lamp is so functional and yet it looks like a sculpture from a museum.
The arm is adjustable as well, making it a perfect option for a multitude of tasks. The lamp would fit in perfectly, tucked into a reading corner in a bedroom or den.
I thought of the little black dress the first time I saw this aged brass floor lamp.
It stood out from all the others on the page. The clean contemporary lines and stylish accents update a space instantly.
This floor lamp would blend perfectly with a variety of styles and trends.
The ultimate in form meets the ultimate in fashion with this adjustable brass floor lamp.
No matter what the function, this lamp is up for the task. The beautiful brass patina and narrow shade would help to illuminate any room.
Go ahead, transform your space with any or all of these functional and stylish lighting options. After all, this is the year for the perfect blend of beauty and utility.
