do you really love lamp, brick?

Nothing is a bigger reminder that I watch too much TV than the fact that almost anything reminds me of a movie or a TV show. When I saw these amazing lamps from designer David Taylor, I immediately thought, “Ooh . . . I love these lamps.” Directly followed by an internal, “Hahaha . . . I love lamp. I LOVE LAMP!” If you haven’t seen Anchorman (Why not? It’s hilarious!), that will seem like total gibberish to you, but if you have, you’ll remember Steve Carell’s character, Brick, and how he says “I love Lamp!” during a discussion about falling in love. (If you haven’t seen that scene, click here to watch.) I couldn’t think of a more appropriate description for my admiration of this piece. It’s beautiful, it’s interesting and well, I love lamp. Sometimes there’s not much more to say than that. Click here to check out more from David and to see additional photos of his gorgeous brass lamps. xo, grace

  1. I wish I could look at this sort of thing without immediately trying to figure out “geez … how would I go about making that”. It’s exhausting. I *love* the second one. Love it. Beautiful design Mr. Taylor.

  2. Hahaha, I LOVE LAMP! And really, I do – gorgeous! :)

    I LOVE the first one! Amazing and I want it for my new desk!

    Or like in Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense– “I have written a love song. In this film I sing it to a lamp.” I wonder if Steve Carell was just channeling David Byrne. :)

  5. Jess says:

    Beautiful! I do love those lamps!
    And I love lamp, in general…
