so, i ordered this lamp for grady's nightstand from the foundary right before christmas:
it was just what i was looking for!
well, imagine my surprise when this lamp showed up at my doorstep:
plus, the arm of the lamp was totally bent.
can you see how bent it is on the picture?!
(i was beginning to feel like a chump. did they not think i would notice? gheesh.)
i called the foundary to see if i could swap the bent/wrong lamp for the lamp i ordered, but they didn't have any more left. (insert a very sad face from me and some begging to see if they knew who made it and where i could find it. they didn't. and then i proceeded to spend the next hour on the internet looking for an alternative that wasn't $400 with no luck.)
customer service was really nice, and refunded my money, but i still don't have a lamp for his night stand.
i recently won a $50 gift card from west elm from jean's great blog (flower hill designs), so i think i might use it to cover part of the cost of a new lamp.
here are some that i am considering:
morten table lamp.
the matte finish is nice, the shape is great, and i like that this lamp would add another dose
of black to the room.
i also really like these lamps:
industrial task lamp
stephen antonson table lamp
cast metal horse lamp
i have had a crush on the barometer lamp from ikea forever, and it is very affordable.
i am leaning toward the morten table lamp, but will probably wait for a few more weeks before i commit.
there is a home goods about 3 miles form my house, and i am going to make a few trips there to see if
anything that catches my eye. i will keep you posted!
