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

By 10/26/2009

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

(just a little market research)

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

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

  4. Honey, I am all double-gourded out myself.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Oooh, C & L are both fabulous choices.

    ReplyDelete
  6. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  7. 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:)

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

    ReplyDelete
  9. C, D, and E fo sho.

    ReplyDelete
  10. 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)

    ReplyDelete
  11. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  13. 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. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  15. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  16. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  18. 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.

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

    I love F.

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

    ReplyDelete
  21. D, H, L.

    in that order. no color or shade changes necessary.

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

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh my gosh...A, A and A.

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

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  27. 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...

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  30. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  32. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I vote for a gourd lamp anyday.

    ReplyDelete
  34. G and J. Love the colors.

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

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

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

    L, H, B :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  40. 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.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  43. G and I'll take 2 please.

    ps I have awesome taste. Ask everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  44. A,E,G,H

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

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

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  49. 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!

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

    ReplyDelete

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

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  56. 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.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  59. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  61. 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?

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

    ReplyDelete
  63. 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.

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  67. 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. :)

  68. Dear lamp D,
    Where have you been all my life?
    Please come home with me.
