I’ve been obsessed with lighting lately. Ever since we began the barn studio project I’ve realized just how important not only good lighting is, but aesthetically, how it can make or break a room. Most recently I have been in the market for task lighting for the sewing area of my studio. I had been using the typical task lamp found at Michaels, but I really wanted something a bit more casual, country, and barn-like. Beautiful home office lighting with a vintage look. So, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Lamps.com to choose and review one of their lamps. With hundreds of excellent choices, I narrowed it down to these three:Jadeite Ceramica Table Lamp by Feiss, Brass Farmhouse Table Lamp by Dimond, and Elise Table Lamp by Currey & Company. I ultimately chose the Elise and it arrived yesterday!Currey & Company, a wholesale manufacturer headquartered in Atlanta, Georga, began as purveyors of historic garden furnishings. They are now best known for lighting products such as chandeliers, wall sconces, table and floor lamps, as well as interior furniture, garden furniture and accessories. You can shop their extensive lighting fixture collection at Lamps.com.The lamp came in two separate boxes for both base and shade and were very well packed for protection. Nothing to do but attach the harp to the base, screw on the shade and pop in a bulb. Until recently, all our lamps were inexpensive ones purchased from places like Target. However, after much consideration, I spent a good penny on three awesome chandeliers for the studio with no regret. They hang down the center of the barn with recessed lights to each side. So to add this gorgeous wood-turned table lamp to my collection is a dream. The Elise Table Lamp is created from wood with an off-white painted and distressed finish. The linen shade is printed with a khaki Damask pattern. The quality of this lamp is incredible, right down to the solid brass hardware.I chose the Elise primarily to coordinate with the space it will rest and illuminate, my sewing table. It’s perfect!
Yes, this is a pricey item, and yes, likely it would not have been in my budget if this were not a product-compensated review. But should you be in the market for high-end, top quality lighting fixtures and products, I am hopeful this review helps steer you in the right direction. Lamps.com has lighting in a wide range of prices with many below $100.
