curvy bottom lamp

by Grace Bonney

For the last seven years, I’ve been a chair girl. Through and through, chairs were the thing I gravitated toward most, and I collected them like they were an endangered species. AC used to joke that I had three to four chairs for each person living in our home, and he wasn’t far off. I mean, who doesn’t love a cute chair?

But lately I’ve replaced my chair lust with something slightly different (and more affordable): lamp lust. Just like this guy, I find myself saying, “I love (that) lamp” more often these days, and I’ve got a new one to add to my digital wish list. Canvas just added a gorgeous, hand-carvedĀ Amish-made black walnut lamp to their collection that is just dying to move into our new home office. With a great big linen (gray? raspberry colored?) shade, this sucker would be pure heaven. While the name of the lamp reminds me of the recent misguided “Fat-Bottomed Girls” skit from Glee, I’m loving the lamp anyway and hoping that it might make the final “buy” list when we get settled in to the new apartment later next week. If you’re looking for a beautiful new lamp, click here to check this one out in detail or order online ($280). xo, grace
