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:

So what's your take on the aluminum clamp lamp? How about the basket lights? Love 'em, hate 'em?

Thanks for visiting and for being such inspiring bloggers!

  1. Hmmm. Basket lamps. Not so much. I did make one out of an egg basket that I really like, but it's wire. I LOVE the aluminum clamp lamp.
