Like most folks, our home decor projects are moving right along at a snail’s pace. But I do have (perhaps) one small piece of progress: Table Lamps for the Bedside Tables.
If you didn’t catch the original post, Hubby crafted bedside tables for us that are a combination of sleek and rustic.
The room has nothing else in it yet except for the master bed, which is constructed entirely from the dark wenge wood you can see above, and a bedside table on each side. No other furniture, no curtains. Nadda. So we’re really starting fresh here.
Initially, my thought was something a bit industrial. So I was really thrilled when I came upon a set of lamps in this style at HomeSense just the other day.
This lamp was on a Boxing Day sale for $39.99. Total bargain, with the nice details and sturdy construction.
I really LOVE these lamps and want to keep them. But a little disappointed part of me wonders if they actually work in this space. The silver really pops out — almost too much. I suppose I could work to add silver accents throughout the room on frames and curtain rods. Think about that for me a moment, while I bring you to option #2.
This one is a more traditional style, but not too much so. You’ll have to excuse the plastic wrap on it! The material is a beige linen.
It also has some really nice details and is a great price at $39.99. I think it blends in more than the first option, but I wonder if maybe it blends in too much. I also wonder if perhaps the table could use a lamp that is larger, and more squat.
So what do you think — option #1 or option #2. Or perhaps you don’t think either are a right fit … if so, what should I be looking for?
