Barometer Floor Lamp

• 27 October 2009



































Several people asked if I purchased this lamp at Restoration Hardware. I take that as a compliment...I dream of furnishings from RH. But, do you want to know a secret? I bought the lamp at IKEA and it cost me 1/4 of the price of any lighting piece at RH. Just thought I'd share this budget find as I'm always thrilled to find a "look for less" too :)

Looks great, and don't be fooled by some of RH's lamps being worth more than any others! I know the founder of RH, and his source for lamps were never that great. We both worked for him in our college days,and my husband could never get over how he managed to get cheap sources and charge the prices that he did.
I know that the founder sold the company a while back, but I'm assuming that it still is run very similar.
I have had many little IKEA goodies mixed with some of my older pieces, and I get a lot of compliments on them.

Good find! I am going to have to get one for our reading chair in the family room. Thanks, I have been looking for a while.

Been considering this lamp for a while... love how it looks in your home! I decided to brave the snowstorm at the point of the mountain to run up and get one today. (and a few other goodies as well!) Thanks for your recommendation. (nothing like escaping the cold snow for an hour or so inside IKEA - the view from the cafe was delightful)

What a great lamp! Sometimes I'm surprised at how many great things IKEA has!

I adore IKEA and mixing their items with others I own..but I had no idea they had this lamp!

It looks amazing in your home.

I love your photos..... so gorgeous!

It would be fun to see more photos of your "real" home! I love your style!

I really wanted this lamp similar to this when I saw it in Design Within Reach. But, I think I'll wait until my youngest (15 mo) gets a little older and doesn't grab onto things so much.

I know Ikea has non-standard bulbs.... What type bulb does it take?

Stephanie said...

Lissa, I used a standard bulb just fine, but maybe something else would look better?
