In the Dupuis-Perez Household, we’ve been obsessing…. over lamps. We can’t afford real furniture (and apparently we can’t afford new lamps either. Ha!) so we’ve been obsessing over household accessories. Remember the fear of having people over and our panic induced framing-palooza? Well, one thing leads to another and pretty soon the photos need better lighting, and that shade is stupid, and maybe we’ll just WALK down the target lighting aisle just to SEE what they have. You get the idea, and here we have arrived.
I want this. It’s from Lamps Plus and it’s 100 dollars and I want it. Can I justify a 100 dollar lamp? No. but it doesn’t stop the lust, ladies and gentleman, the lust cannot be stopped. Also – Lamps Plus? Who would have thought, right?
This is a Daffodil Bell Desk Lamp. And If I had an office, or a writing study, or a desk that wasn’t covered in “clean” clothes, or an entry way even (obviously, I’m not picky) I would put this lamp there, and it would make me happy. Kamel says I like old lady things, and I respond with a resounding “Hells yes” because old lady are the shit, fool. This lamp can be found at Amazon and is “currently unavailable” putting it on the ultimate lust list – even if I could I wouldn’t be able to buy it. Womp.
This is a Crate and Barrel lamp.
So is this one.
I think both of these are actually on our registry. We enjoy picking furniture, kitchen things, housing accessories, that look as if they could get up and run away if they wanted. We want items in our house that have personality and animation. I imagine that first lamp to make a bass-y tuba noise when it tries to speak, and that second one is a scuttler… you know that lamp scuttles around the living room whenever you’re out of town. He so crazy.
And this overhead light by Re-Surface Design out of Brooklyn, NY and is one of those home items I will never, ever, ever feel cool enough to own, but will forever and ever lust after. And! Lucky you! (Because, obviously you’re cooler than me, let’s not even front) It’s on sale right now, marked down to $195! (Holy shit, what was it before?) Oh, the price you pay for unique, awesome, and independent artist made. Sigh.
Then, if none of these work, and you’re just fed up with lamp shopping, you can never go wrong with boobs. (As mama always says)
Nothing says classy like a lamp with a pasty.
Or, if tacky isn’t your thing, and you have enough light in your lovely abode, there’s always the applique option.
This little number is from Elly Nelly out of Australia and I love it so much! We might have to do an entire Lust List inspired by wall graphics because they are yet another thing I am far too lame-o to own in real life. Sigh.
One day, when we actually get some non-ikea luminescence up in here, I’ll give a heads up. Until then, I’ll be shopping from afar.
