Lamp Love, Part II

For some reason, lamps have been a really popular item as of late. Here are a few of my favorite selections floating about the store right now. Keep in mind if these don't really speak to you, there are plenty more to choose from.
First up, this great statement floor lamp fashioned from a surveyors tripod. Dealer #150, $275.
This vintage lamp is more traditional, but I think it would be a great addition to your home. I imagine it fitting nicely in a Hemingway inspired home complete with odds and ends from travels, atlases, or globes. Dealer #83, $65.
 Ah, cork. I am really digging cork base lamps lately, and this one is an excellent example. I haven't seen one in such great shape before--ordinarily, due to age, portions of the cork go missing, but this guy is fully intact and ready to light up your home. Dealer #123, reduced from $225 to $139.

 I love this classic "egg" shaped lamp for its simplicity and elegance. I imagine it would look lovely in a Hollywood Regency inspired powder room or little girl's room. Dealer #05, $145.
 These two guys are great. In the background is a 60s pendant light (which would incidentally look wonderful in my dining room, ahem!). What you can't see in the picture is that the inside of the lamp is a vibrant turquoise, which adds an awesome shot of color. Front and center is the red rescue lamp on rollers. I would love to see this used on an end table in a funky living room. Dealer #NYA, pendant light $95, rescue lamp $195.
LOVE is all I have for this lamp. I love its industrial edge and this light would be perfect for a larger space since it is bright, bright, bright! Dealer #02, $75.
What can be said about this lamp? It's awesome, it's bright, it asks me every time I walk in the door why I haven't taken it home with me. And it just happens to be a remarkably rare J. T. Kalmar mid-century modern "atomic" lamp. Dealer #133, price available upon request.

Chair Chart

Friends, I couldn't resist sharing this little chart with you I found at the Brick House tumblr page. Wouldn't it make a great graphic addition to your space (preferably in a nice chunky frame)?

Happy Record Store Day!

Our friends at Harvest Records are celebrating Record Store Day today. Because I live with a husband whose love of music takes up at least 100 square feet of our house, I thought I would share with you some record storage ideas I've come across recently. I hope you enjoy, and if you are in Asheville today stop by Harvest to partake in some musical goodness!

This first solution is perhaps my favorite. Designer Kenneth Brown came up with this approach. The drawers pull out and can hold up to 2, 000 lps. Dream come true! Image via Apartment Therapy.
 Check out this record room. This space is perfect because it keeps your collection neat and tidy without overtaking your space. In using stacked Ikea bookcases, it feels like the room has built-in bookcases and therefore provides a bit of sophistication to your listening lounge. Image via Apartment Therapy.

 This next solution from Atocha Design is for those of you that prefer to keep your collection tucked away entirely, while at the same time providing the sleek look of a mid-century credenza. If you live in a smaller home like me, you might appreciate the ability to keep your records organized in a less likely spot like the dining room or bedroom. I also like the way you can flip through the records the same way as if you were in a record store hunting for goodies to take home.

I might have to try this next storage solution myself. I'm always thinking of objects to take up space in the hearth of our non-working fireplace. With this idea, I can add a bit of quirkiness to our space (as if it needs more of that...) while also providing a bit of texture and color from the record sleeves. Image via Apartment Therapy.

 These shipping crates imported from England are definitely an easy solution for storing records as well. What makes them cooler than the typical crate, though, are the shipping stamps on either side.Dealer #44, $65 each.
 I love this pair of industrial barrister bookcases as an option. The nice thing about these is that you can break up the records with a cute vase or other collectibles for contrast. Dealer #NYA, $750 each.
Please pardon the terrible cell phone snapshot, it does not give this piece justice. This is a vintage Swedish record unit that fits both records and record player all in one piece. Plenty of room and again, would be a nice addition to a smaller space because it can house other knick knacks as well. Dealer #123, $225 on sale!

 And then there's this option. Let's face it, most of you have collection that will only fit inside of an industrial warehouse. Image via
