Speaking of pining over beautiful things we want on behalf of our babies.
This is the lamp I want for the little guys' room.
A little about that room... We haven't actually started putting it together yet (maybe I should get on it already?) but we have started pulling the elements together. Mostly he is getting a lot of hand me downs from mom & pop; stuff we have outgrown but held on to, or things that we think would be pretty rad in his room. The result? A kind of mid-century/western/industrial/vintage/mod mash up.
One thing I have not collected much of is lamps, and I think this one is perfect. The Buckminster inspired geometric form is so cool for childhood, and the warm glow of the hardened felt really speaks to the vintage western-ey theme without being literal.
They carry it in one of my favorite local shops, and every time I pass by I sigh.
I am holding out. Honestly? I probably won't buy it. The rad rocking chair was kind of my we don't really need this but I want it cause it is so pretty splurge.
But, we'll see.
