There's just something cold and lonely about a poorly lit room. I don't have any overhead lighting in my living room and I HATE it. My building has old, concrete construction, so installing or even hanging something from the ceiling isn't an option.
Enter: the floor lamp.
I'm not typically a fan of floor lamps. Those black ones everyone had in the 90s with halogen bulbs put a dark mark on the reputation of the floor lamp for me. BUT, I've been quietly drooling over this one from CB2 for about a year.
So clean and friendly looking, and it would bring a nice crisp design element into my mishmash of boho-artsy-whimsy apartment decor. And it's BIG. I want BIG, warm, happy light to fill my living room.
That's not my apartment. The lamp is cute, right? At $200 though, it seems like a lot to spend on a floor lamp.
Well, Target has something... similar?
Eeeeehhhh. It's close, but I'm not sold. I've only seen it in this picture (which isn't doing it any favors), but it looks a bit flimsy and short. At $70 the price tag sure looks a lot better though...
