Brass Lamps

A new obsession of mine: Brass lamps.

But not just any ol' brass lamps, the ones that look like these absolutely lovely little slices of heaven:


Super obsessed with that first one...Hillary Swank's swanky NYC apartment. It's a good thing I like her.






Of course if you would like one of these beauties for your very own, the usual suspects have got ya all covered...

Restoration Hardware

 Ballard Designs

Pottery Barn

So what are you thinking...way too much "grandma's old desk lamp" or yummy enough to cover your dessert in?

Yea or Nay???

Those are quite an upgrade from Grandma's version. I found some old brass bookcase lamps in my parents attic. I think I might steal them or, um, ASK for them.

I love anything gold/brass. So chic and classic.

I love the ones they have at pottery barn, apothecary lamps? The ones that look like they belong on an old movie set...to me anyway.

Grandma is pretty stylish in this case! Yea! I passed Hilary Swank on the street in NYC once. We kind of looked at each other and I smiled and she smiled back and said hello and we just went along our merry ways. We're subtle like that in NY lol :)

I'm obsessed too! The only thing holding me back from taking the plunge is wondering if I'll still be obsessed with them years from now. When I commit, I fully commit :)

I love them, absolutely love them! Rub n Buff is my latest obsession- turning all of my old shiny brass into a more honed gold.

I have always loved the old style brass lamps. I found a vintage art deco one at an antique mall just like the one currently in Country Living magazine. It's so cute and such a deal!

Brass lamps for living room give you a sense of peace along with the reassurance of your house. The gorgeous hue of the metal makes a perfect match for decors of contemporary, or traditional decor which generally provides an old-fashioned appearance.
