If the base were a larger (floor lamp) with another shade. Who makes these hideous shades BTW?

Decorno said...

Yeah, the shades are ruining things here. You are so right.

LOVE the base.

Jules said...

I say no. Number 1, just no. Number 2, how would you clean or dust it with all those cracks and crevices? I can't tell what the material is. Painted wood? Ceramic?

i'm fine with it- great in a boy's room.

jozette said...

Eh.

jen said...

HUGE no. That thing will be the piece of crap that is laughed about in 5 years.

i say no. i cringe when something classic like faux-bois gets trendy.

Shannon said...

Yes = Base
No = Shade

I agree the base would be better as a floor lamp, it'd add a lot of interest to a corner.

*L said...

yes.

Can't you just make one? Out of some random piece of wood and a some spray paint?

Diana said...

The base is nice...is it actually wood? I would use a fun, patterned shade instead.

Joslyn said...

yes on base...in fact anon, i have hubby working making one right now, but with a bigger base and better shade.

morrismore said...

No, no, no!

Leah said...

Yes.

simply seleta said...

No thank you.

Looks like something Mrs. Brady would have brought home and bragged to Alice that this lamp will help snazz up the split level.

No, no,no! This would be the lamp sitting on the 80's black faux lacquered end table next to the oversized 80's black leather sofa in some bachelor pad. Hmmmm, on second thought, maybe so bad it's good.

We've canceled "so bad it's good." That whole thing is over.

I like the shade. The base looks like a murder weapon waiting to happen.

meh.

That is a big ugly silver stump.

Metallic spray paint does not fix everything.

I am LMAO @ "murder weapon waiting to happen."

Decks:

Ari Gold would reject it, and that's good enough for me.

SarahHutch said...

I think only yes if the base were a different color. Definitely not metallic, maybe a shiny lacquer of some sort.

Alkemie said...

Love the base, no to the shade.

mominaledo said...

Where do you get great lamp shades? I need a lamp shade 101 class.

I've never seen a single tree, growing in the forest, that would be improved by a ca.-1984 disco paint job.

Hamster.

Kwana said...

No. Sorry. No.

Julia said...

I would like it at somebody else's house, not mine.

no, i can't deal with this lamp. the shade looks cheap and the tree trunk isn't right either.
