Lamps & Libraries

Using what he had I created a small library, with desk of course, in the living room.


His sofa has the same shades of robin's egg blue as the lamps.



The lamps were thrifted.  A contractor for the Ritz tossed about 40 of these lamps at his personal driveway on garbage day.  A neighbor brought 1 in to the thrift store asking if they wanted all of them.  I bought 4.

Libraries, desks, lamps.  Comfort for the soul.

Still hunting a spot in my garden for a desk.

One man's trash is another man's treasure. Looks lovely.

What?!!
Those lamp bases are beautiful!

I've been hunting for one like that for months...London, Paris, New York. And here's someone tossing them onto the pavement on junk day! Clearly, I live in the wrong neighbourhood.
Does he have any blue-and-white china urns too? A chesterfield sofa? Perhaps a vintage chaise?

We all love a rescue story. And nothing beats a matched pair of lamps. Especially classic ones like these. Happy reading!

Love how you take photos of corners. Those rugs you found the other day are stunning! x Maria
