do you really love the lamp, or are you just saying it because you saw it?

lamps
take a good look and consider.
who's coming with you? any of them?

(just a little market research)

L, H, E and in that order!

trixxie said...

F or H...I think I'm drawn to F's color but H's shape...and also I would grab different shade.

Anonymous said...

I, C, J

I like L the best, but I love the shape of D, if it was a diff. color i'd def buy that one!

bluprint27 said...

I only like F and K. I think...

Anonymous said...

Honey, I am all double-gourded out myself.

Emily said...

Oooh, C & L are both fabulous choices.

my favorite and my best said...

i am with anon...over the gourds. none of the others knock my socks off either.
if i had to choose i would choose K or E with a different shade.

Mary Beth said...

I like the bases of F & G - they remind me of a djinn bottle. I feel that all I need to do is rub the lamp and all my wishes will come true:)

R said...

I love "G".
That's all...

Corinna White Charlton said...

Love C (I have an Asia-inspired office), and like H
Need a pair of something for bedside tables...

marrrta said...

G, J, B (in that order)

Old Beach Bungalow said...

I like D

Anonymous said...

C, D, and E fo sho.

Claire said...

F & G.
Also funny because I found myself looking at a kind of similar lamp online, and discovered it was from Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen's line! (their continuum table lamp)

K said...

I vote "H". :)

I do however, like how short and stable "D" looks! Sometimes it's hard to find a shorter lamp for a small table that isn't rounded w/ a smaller bottom. It looks like it could survive an accidental bumping in to. And I really like the square shade.

Ann at sevenspelledout said...

I'm embarrassed to say that I love each and every one of them and would take them all home if I could.

Anonymous said...

I like D and G, but am not "in love" with any of them. As in, if someone put them all in front of me and told me I could have one for free, I'd happily walk away with one of those. But if I saw them in a store, I'd probably pass them all by. And I agree with Trixxie...different shades please. :)

brynalexandra said...

D, E, K

Claire said...

D is by far my fave.

JennyW said...

D and H, most likely. I liked the colors in both, and the shape of D. But I would have liked to see some of the bases with different shades—cleaner lines.

susan said...

D and J (but different colors would be cool) D because its different and has a slight chinoiserie nod. J because its a classic "ginger jar" shape and is timeless. E and K are also great alabaster type shapes. I agree with the others that double gourds are ovah. I like B's lucite base, and I can see C in a variety of awesome rooms. Okay, so everything but double bulbs.

bene said...

A and I. To the extent that I'm now wondering if a trip to china town and the lamp store is in order to create A.

Rebecca (Dog-Eared) said...

mm, B C I

annabelle said...

D or J. Really like that turquoise. Or something mirrored...

Laura said...

A!

I saw bookends like this in Shanghai before I moved away and didn't buy them. I've kicked myself for it all the way to Bangkok. If I ever see them again, even in lamp form, I'm snatching them up.

Julie said...

No, no, no on A & C. I hate foo dogs so much.

I love F.

neen said...

C, D, K, or L. And maybe I with a different shade.

IndigoMaven said...

D, H, L.

in that order. no color or shade changes necessary.

The Enchanted Closet said...

It's F for me but with a different shade.

Betsy said...

Oh my gosh...A, A and A.

The others are so expected....cute but not very unique.

Anonymous said...

Meh.

Nancy E. J. said...

I'd go with G. I'm a sucker for green.

Catherine said...

G or L with K's shade

Susan said...

B, F and L ... love the shapes and balance along with colors.

Cote de Texas said...

e and f!!!!!!!!!!!! love those!!!! for real. not just saying it.

Anonymous said...

I love C !

Jenny B. said...

b, e, h

MsTeacherLady said...

A, D, and H. I probably wouldn't buy A in a(n American) store, though, because I always feel stupid buying ethnic-y things when I've never even been to that region of the world. I have a couple of interesting lamps from when my dad was stationed in Hong Kong in the '70s, and I would have loved to acquire a couple A's from something like that though...

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...

I'll just take all of them ;)

Jennifer said...

I'm going with A. Love the quirkyness of them.

hand.pecked said...

My votes are B, E, K and L.

LeslieJ said...

F or E

Anonymous said...

E L

Kyle Lynn said...

I like E and F...

spark! (Ada-Marie) said...

Love this! I will take one of A, D, F & G. :)

Chez said...

D, and maybe L.

Rachel said...

D and secretly in love with C

Can't do the stacked gourds because everybody and their teenage niece has at least two.

They always remind me of my own pearish-gourd-type shape anyhow. No one needs a reminder of that.

Megan said...

love the foo dogs... so A... and L.

Chesa said...

I have F in my master bedroom. 2 of F actually. They are already on board in my household so that means I'm partial.

Yodataco said...

Totally H.

compulsively compiled said...

G & L, I love!

Kara said...

I vote for a gourd lamp anyday.

Shannon said...

G and J. Love the colors.

Jessie said...

L and E if it were a different color...

Elena said...

A, C, E.

Erin said...

G has my vote.

Andrea S. said...

B, F, G

Jamie said...

I like them all - but none well enough to rush out and buy for my place.

Sara said...

A, G and I.

my little apartment said...

I could work with D.

Lovely Little Nest said...

bahaha!! Oh Ron Burgundy, how I love thee :)

L, H, B :)

Lovely Little Nest said...

P.S. What about L with a drum shade?

Christy said...

Maybe E. I'm not really wild about any of them. If I had inherited one of them I would like it fine, but I can't see myself choosing any of these myself.

julia wheeler said...

A, D, G & L (all with different shades!)

Anonymous said...

I think all of them except for A and C would come with me! Good luck with your store! If I lived anywhere near you I would come delight in it.

Ashley said...

D.

lauren in the tundra said...

C, F, G , J - also in order!

andi said...

B, C, F, H, I, L....very nice!

Alana said...

K

Martinis or Diaper Genies? said...

G and I'll take 2 please.

ps I have awesome taste. Ask everyone.

Sarah said...

A,E,G,H

Not many people selected A...but I love em!

Erin @ SYL: Slipcover Your Life said...

H and J are coming with me I think...

Rachel said...

E, H, I, K.... in no order.
Except if E had a black shade... then I'd be all over that!

Jennifer said...

F and G please.

globeguy said...

Pass. If you forced me, C, with a different shade.

Julia from Dozen Flours said...

I like F with H's shade. I'm really over white lamp shades!

Adrianne said...

G, F, L. But I don't like any of the lamp shades. I'd rather have just a clean drum shade.

thrownforaloop said...

A, L & B, but I would change the finial on A to a more neutral. Best of luck with the shop, wish I lived closer!

AlliJean said...

I'd pick C and swap in a black shade.

LA Style Files said...

B, E & H!!

amy said...

Most certainly L & then I'd ponder over A & D. But I like A for bookends which I've been seeing around...

Sareberry said...

A and C, maybe K with a taller, more interesting shade.

MelancholySmile said...

F, G, H and L with a drum shade please. :)

Sara@hipE said...

I like C, G and H the best but they are all pretty great.

Stacey said...

E, G, H!

Blog Author(s) said...

I.

Sarah Michelle Griisser said...

J

TinkerBlue said...

I have a lamp very similar to H in another colour. I'd like J in the colour of G. I also like F and G.

Anonymous said...

I like A, C D and J but I don't like the shades.

meohmyoh said...

A, F, and G, but that's about it.

Greeneyes said...

I love the shape of F, G, L. Lovely curves, those lamps, and the color on F is lovely.

I have a hard time getting behind the foo dogs, though (A). Trendy though they may be, they seem too "of the moment". I'd rather invest in something more timeless, less intentionally ugly.

Megan said...

E. but not a fan of any of the shades.

Colette's Cottage said...

E, K, H in that order (I'm a traditionalist when it comes to lamps- so that they can move into any room seamlessly).

Are you going to give us the results of your poll?

Anonymous said...

H

Hopeless Chest said...

A & J, although I prefer round shades! love all the colours

tcs said...

J!

Sarah said...

G, I guess... but I'm not really wowed by any other them in particular. I'd also probably change the shade if I were to buy G.

Rebecca said...

None of them really jump out at me. If I had to choose one...H

Taylor said...

I like A, C, D, and I. They stand out while the others seem very common.

inthetweeds said...

E, G, H, J, L!

micky said...

I'm not in love with any of them, but if I had to choose I would take B.

Katie said...

G L H

southernvitrine said...

A, C, E through I, and K. But A, E, and K are my absolute favorites. Pick only one? Sure, that'd be K.

Hope your store is doing well! I hope to open a shop of my own someday. :)

Jacquelyn said...

A, B, L.

Simon and Ruby said...

G & L. I am in love.

Erika said...
