If you had told me, a few years ago, that I would like anything Mid century, I think I would have died laughing.
I got the bug.
To be sure, I stay away from anything that reminds me of the mid century that I grew up with, but I am loving some of the fun mid century designs that are making a come back these days.
Especially the colors, the modern sleek lines, and the sense of nostalgia.
I am currently on the hunt for a lamp, I want color and an atomic look, but it needs to fit in with my current decor which is remnants of traditional, prim, eclectic, junk repurpose, rustic. Got that!!!!
So here are some of the fun lamp designs I ran across in my searches.
Many are way way out of my price range, but I had to share.
Love this one, colors etc. But it's not a floor lamp and...well... the price is way out reach.
Still too expensive
Floor lamp (clipped to polyvore.com) This is a fun and truly retro one that I would LOOOOOVE to have. It's perfect in every way. No price found, but isn't it divine.This is a Jonathan Adler Version, still out of my price range.
A little different shade shape, and I like the blue
Then I ran across a huge collection of lamps with fabulous retro shades on Lamps Plus
I was thinking of getting this one from Home Depot and taking some spray paint to it. I'll let you know how that goes if I decide to do it. I really would prefer to find genuine vintage.
