If decor is your porn, this is your blog.
Great base, lackluster shade and finial.
no, no, no.looks like one of the talking trees from the enchanted forest on h.r. pufnstuf.
yes. yes. and more yes.
Not as bad as the other lamp. Still too "coral" looking for me. Still not a "yes". finial should have been gold, shade is much better than the other.
Yes = baseNo = shade
I like the shade. Good square shades are hard to find.The base: I'd be embarrassed to put it out in a garage sale.
no and no. hmmm. like a bronzed baby shoe with a shade on it.i guess faux bois is done.
It's like the form vomit would take as it dribbled down the side of a car and dried.
So, Anon, is that a no? :)
beachbungalow8- i don't think faux bois is "done" at all- just in this case it has been "done" badly.there are still lots of other stylish faux bois pieces out there! this one is simply a bad knock-off.
i'm more interested in the vraie (sp) bois these days. my comment is in regards to the current OVER use of the faux bois design element (which is acutally a classic like the over done greek key) when you see drek like this, you know that we need to set this trend aside for a bit. let it rest.
i agree 100%, bb8!
No, no! I was all set to get the Brunschwig faux bois sconces for our dining room. This just saved me a bundle.
It's better than that log in the other post, but still a resounding no. I like the shade, though.
I'm not buying that fake wood is "classic." Just because something has been around forever doesn't make it "classic." (Bad taste has been around forever too.)
It looks like it's trying really hard to be a "special" lamp. Like if I spray painted my favorite leather boots gold in an attempt to look haute couture.
It's a deadish, hacked tree stump, spray-painted gold. So: no.
This is what "hardening of the arteries" must look like.
Yes. I know it is strange but I love it.
you do see lamps like those in magazines like Elle Decor, so decorators must like them. then again, most decorators are idiots.
i would say the same for most anons, 9:09.sincerely,a decorator (not an idiot) wondering why the hell you are reading a decor blog anyway?
Anon 4:51: perfectly stated.
go M21!I think that would be mostly a resounding no...
No and hell to the no. These two motifs have transcended trend and edged into fad. They are just so tired now, I wonder if either comes with a little wheeled oxygen tank.Perhaps they could use some freshening up with an antler or some skull and crossbones... I know, I know, a tad of the snark, but I just think that these babies need to be put to bed in my opinion.
and forgive me, in looking back at the 2nd lamp I thought that shit was coral, not gilt driftwood or what have you. My stance remains, coral and faux bois have saturated the market and need to be destroyed!
When white people start saying "Hell to the no," maybe that expression is nearing the end of its life too.
Oh dearest Anony -Tomes, volumes, editions could be written about my opinion on your last comment, but alas, out of respect for our dear Decorno I’ll keep my verbal bitch slap to myself.I'm sure your gilt coral lamp looks beautiful on your seahorse bombe chest though. xoxo
you clearly don't know Decorno very well.
