*I was given a lamp by Lamps.com. All opinions are mine.
Yes, I hugged a lamp. We moved in to this house five months ago. And that whole time we have been without a light in our living room. We have been using a combination of the entryway light and the dining room light. And when partnered with the glow of the ever-present television, well, the room still isn’t very bright or inviting. When Lamps.com reached out and asked if I would like to take a look at their selection of lamps I got SO excited. Was I really going to get a lamp for my front room finally?! There was really no reason we didn’t have one other than my husband and I are still working out what our decor styles are and what we thought that room needed. Decisions can be paralyzing. And I thought I was going to have a really hard time choosing since Lamps.com has SO many lamps to choose from. But in the end, the decision came pretty quickly!
Originally we had a small square end table that took up the whole space between the mirrored wall and the couch. The first decision was whether we wanted to do a floor lamp or a table lamp. I found some great options for both like this one (maybe too mid-century) and this one (too traditional) and this (love love love but more than we wanted to spend). There are literally bajillions of lamps to choose from. And they cover every style you can think of. The site makes it really easy to narrow down the searches by style, color, price etc. In the end, I came across what I thought would be the perfect floor lamp, the Boulevard Floor Lamp from Alesso. At first I was worried about the scale of the lamp and if it would be too plain. But it is perfect.
The lamp arrived in a box and was very easy to put together. It was protected really well and in a mere minutes I had my new living room lamp. Which I promptly hugged as if it was a long lost friend. We opted to get rid of the square table and I found this really cute faux granite rectangular table instead. I know I don’t have any before photos but this lamp and table combo REALLY completes this side of the room! It is cozy and homey (and hanging the art certainly helped with that). And the best part is that I have my spot back! Right there on the chaise with my fave blanket and my reading light. My husband and I actually fight over it. While there is still furniture that I want to replace in the room and more art to hang, adding this floor lamp really helped to make it feel like home again. I am grateful for Lamps.com for sending me this awesome lamp!
