Swank Lighting - Pair of Glass Jug Lamps - $1400 (Light blue hand blown Murano glass table lamps by Joe Cariati)(above)
Was chit chatting via email with my friend AB who just bought a new home in the Pacific Palisades. I was telling him he had to send me photos of his new house for COCOCOZY and asking lots of other questions about random things that he was artfully dodging (as he has managed to do for years of friendship). All of a sudden in the middle of our discourse (or me nagging him), AB sent an email saying "Where do I get this?" "Get what?" I wrote back and then continued with the barrage of questions. I was so busy with my train of thought that I didn't even notice that he had in fact attached a picture he had seen on COCOCOZY (it is below). Turns out the "this" was the blue glass jar shaped lamp in the photo a lovely foyer. He wanted that exact blue lamp.
I felt like this was a game show challenge...some kind of scavenger hunt. The gauntlet was thrown down and I took the lamp search on...with a bit of bravado I must add. Of course, excessive bravado or hubris is always followed by a dose of humility...so needless to say, I did not find the exact lamp he was looking for. I did, however, come across several other lovelies.
So, glass blue lamps make up today's CHEAP TO CHIC!
