Adding an unusual element to a room.

We moved recently, and I have been consumed with a combination of redecorating and placing the furniture we brought from the old house.  Many of my old lamps did not fit in the new house with more current decorating.  Even before the move, I was always in the mood for things whimsical, unusual or offbeat to catch one’s eye in a room.  Lamps are a great way to do that and I’ve had fun on the lamp hunt.

This is a whimsical Feather Metal Table Lamp from Pier One.   I find it charming, and its white feathers will go with any colors in a room.  It is 16” high and $89.95.

This is a very useful small lamp that can go anywhere.  It is an orb of clear crystal that gives off a nice warm glow.  It is 7.75″W x 7.75″D x 13”H.  $199.00

I am partial to animal and bird lamps because I think they’re adorable and lovely.  This is a mini ceramic table lamp of a woodland owl.  I love blue and white so they would certainly go in my house. The lamp is 10” W x 10” D x 16” H.  A set of two lamps is $119.95.
