Wish List: Arc Lamp

For awhile now I've been contemplating getting an arc lamp. It really wasn't in the forefront of my mind, but then, I saw it. This photo below made me want it 10x more. And as you all know, once you get an image stuck in your head, well, it's hard to get it to leave!

So, I will be saving up my hard earned teacher $$ for this baby as we speak. I plan to put it in the living room in the corner of the room that looks to you all like I have a sweet little white bird of paradise plant, but in reality is bare because it died awhile back! Dang black thumb! And, I really need to update this photo because a couple things have changed in here. ; )

I think I'm gonna pick this lamp here and I hope it looks great in my space!

Omigosh...your living room is so stylish!

I think it will look great in your space, but be warned. . . I have a (knock off, thrifted) arco lamp and the thing has injured several people before! I did a post on it a while back if you have a moment and would like to read more:

I'm sure if you go with this version of the lamp you will be safe though (mine is so old and un-sturdy. . . ) I can't wait to see it in the space when you do get it!

I think this is one of the modern classics that you will have forever! great choice.

I am still obsessed with your living room sofa and coffee table! also wanted to let you know that I fell in love with something you posted about from Craig's List, and the buyer agreed to ship it to me from Minnesota ... so THANKS!

Oh that will look amazing in that space! Go for it!

Quick question - where did you get that coffee table? It is exactly what i've been looking for...

They have a light just like that at Weekends only for less than half of the one you are looking at. You should definitely check it out!

That will look great. And, I totally think your room looks better than the inspiration room. :)

Your living room is so FABULOUS!! I think the lamp would only be icing to the delicious room you have created. Can not wait to see it. :)
