The Basket Light? The Aluminum Lamp?
We had a similar discussion at JustBeachy recently about the basket lights. I'm not sure how I feel about them, I think it's great that they are easy to make, but, I just don't quite *love* them, for my home anyways. I'm afraid it would look like an afterthought, an accident... Now, I don't mean to generalize because there have been times that I've LOVED the basket lights, I just don't know about putting one in my home.
So what about the industrial clamp lamp? I mean, I have this lamp laying around waiting for something to be done with it. I used it to warm my baby chicks when they were little. I told my hubs, Jeremy, that I had seen them all over decor blogs. He looked at me and said, "Really? Do we have to do everything you see in decor blogs? There has to be a line somewhere."
But... But... I have the lamp. It's ready to plug in. He sort of hurt my sensitive little decorating feelings ;-) Humor me, honey! I'll do the same for you the next time you want to buy another tool you won't use to build me furniture. ;-)
One of the first times I saw the industrial clamp lamp was over at Savvy Southern Style in this post about Kim's sister's house. The lamp looks so charming! Go check it out!
Then I started seeing the lamps in other places, like apartment therapy's site. These for example:
