In The Right Light

First it was the Sapien Bookcase that captured my eye, and now another modern, vertical and artful piece has fully won me over: the Akari Freeform Column Floor Lamp.  Between the soft light this fixture gives off, the tall sculptural quality and it’s modern Asian vibe, I’m completely sold!  I can’t wait to actually receive my new light and figure out which room will benefit from it’s flattering glow. I’ll keep you posted.

    It's nice to add something vertical and with height to a room — and I think this will be a great addition to your home. Congrats on your new find!

  5. Husband bought a lamp like this and at first I was "eh" but now I love it. It's not my style but goes so well with all of our decor. And it's a little fun.

  13. so funny–I was thinking of a sapien bookshelf for next to my fireplace, then just last night I was watching House and saw one of these lanterns in his office and thought, hey, maybe THAT is what does next to my fireplace…(it's gas, so all these paper products should be safe enough.)

    chesterfields are my favourite types of sofas, they're so classy and would go in any room, just like a Chanel 2.55 goes with any outfit. classic designs which stand the test of time.
