Okay. This is the last day of LIGHTING WEEK on Cococozy and I've just scratched the surface of what's out there as far as cool lighting. What's a girl to do? Help.

Anyhoooo...as promised, a panoply of fab floor lamps. This is for those readers who liked the blue floor lamp I posted earlier this week and for my mother who has been desperately searching for the right floor lamps for her living room. Well...here you go!

I know you might think this last lamp, the big life-size horse, is a joke. It is not. I kind of like it for the right space. In fact, I actually really like it. If I had a huge modern loft in New York City, with white walls, sleek furniture, an overall minimalist aesthetic and lots and lots of extra cash...I might just plunk down the thousands it costs to own it. Definitely a conversation starter! I've always wanted a horse...this is cheaper than buying my own real thoroughbred..right? (In reality, I do not own a huge modern loft in NYC, I do not have a minimalist ultra modern aesthetic and most importantly, I do not have lots and lots of extra cash...so therefore, I will not be purchasing the Horse Lamp. Oh well...boo hoo...)

  1. The huge horse is amazing. I'm thinking of the possibilities. Could be great in a hotel lobby.
    No joke. Thanks for the idea.
