If decor is your porn, this is your blog.
At least not until, like, 20 years from now when people see them in junk shops and paint them glossy white or black and initiate some kind of cultish "vintage" Pottery Barn revival. But really... no.
Got the PB log in the mail yesterday and laughed my ass off. Especially after your post from yesterday. Hoot!
the shade is so wrong there are no words, and NOTHING should be purchased "distressed"- that includes painted finishes and blue jeans.but lil seahorsie? i kind of like him (but i would bust out the black or white spray paint, for sure).
Ha. Someone at work just got this catalog and I was looking at it over her shoulder as she flipped through. When she got to this lamp, she went nuts and I had SUCH a hard time keeping a straight face. Especially bc she bugs in the first place. I had nobody to gab with about this, so now that I've seen your post I feel much better.
I bet Kelly Wearstler has used uglier lamps.
Decorno, I have a better one for you. Check out the "Santiago" lamp. You can put a lovely fern in it!
one more thing... please show the "Atrium" lamp. I am amazed that someone would buy this. You can add all of your favorite treasures in this lamp. And don't we all want to view our collections in a lamp?
This has white elephant gift exchange written all over it!
A sea horse lamp? Really.Maybe next Pottery Barn should go buy 500,000 cheap SILK flower arrangements, slap a light and a shade over each one of them, then market them as the new spring lamp.
I agree with 'no', but he looks so spunky and proud :(
Hilarious! I have a client who before I got a hold of her lived ONLY to furnish her home in POTTERY BARN... ugh! Some rooms look like the catalog puked in every inch of the room. I've weaned her down to a piece here and there. I haven't been in her home in awhile... I pray that lamp hasn't made its way to her home.
20 years? That's not long enough. I think it's gonna take more like 100 years for that thing to redeem itself.
It's not ugly. Just charmless. To pull off a seahorse lamp, the designer has to be a little smart-alecky or playful or exuberant. Or if nothing else, at least stylish. This rendering is too literal and flat. It might as well be a fire hydrant.
Funny.Love your blog!
I'm going out immediately to buy the bombe chest and this lamp.
