The lighting around my desk as been evolving since conception. I mean, obviously you need lighting at a desk. And this is legitimately my work desk so it has to be functional AND freaking awesome.
I started off by falling in love with the industrial farmhouse light that I gave away in November. I loved the pop of color, I loved the industrial vibe it was giving and most of all I loved how it was off of the desk (freeing up more space!)
But alas…it was never meant to be mine.
Next up was the Color Pop Cord Lamp. I loved the exposed cord but the lamp was just too big for the desk, I needed more space.
Most recently I had a old school desk lamp that I gold leaved a little (someone PLEASE take the gold leaf away from me before I have golden underwear)
Loved the shape, but I actually love it MORE in Ivie’s room and just like me, it cant be in two places at once.
Yesterday I hit up the DI (Utah’s version of Goodwill) and found this:
(insert angels singing)
It was PERFECT!
This lamp had everything I loved in each of the other lamps combined into one fabulous package. Its like finding a man that looks like Ryan Gossling, has the adoration and manners of Matthew Crowley, the money of Bill Gates, and the personality of Jimmy Fallon.
Lets go over the happy checklist of perfection. Industrial Style? Check. Off The Desk? Check. Exposed Cording? Check. Vintage Desk Lamp vibe? Check.
Pretty fantastic find for $5.00 if I do say so myself!
Do you play musical (fill in the blank) until you find perfection? Or are you a “I am going to make this work regardless” type decorator?
