CHEAP TO CHIC: A GOOD LIGHT BLUE GLASS LAMP IS ACTUALLY HARD TO FIND!

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!

Any of these table lamps appeal to you? I love the first ones at the top. I might be stealing AB’s idea and get a pair for my little cottage in the Hollywood Hills.

Happy Wednesday!

  1. Thank you for posting the entry hall photo-we actually have a pair of the custom lamps shown in our showroom $765.00 each. I always enjoy your post-keep up the good work!

  2. I know the Joe Cariati lamps seem expensive compared to the others, but they are one of a kind and signed by the artist; Joe Cariati. Joe is working on series #2 of the line, but these blue ones from series #1 were actually a prototype and therefore the only pair that exists in the world. Thanks for including us in this post. Great blog!

  3. I just did a post very recently featuring this colour – one of my all time favourites. So calming and tranquil.
    I particularly love the Mecox Gardens lamp- it looks like sea glass.

  4. Thanks for featuring one of our LAMPS PLUS products in your post! You might also like this Robert Abbey design: http://www.lampsplus.com/products/Robert-Abbey-Delta-Baby-Blue-22-and-one-half-inch-High-Table-Lamp__P2973.html

    It’s brand new, we just added it. It has a more faceted base, but the beautiful blue ceramic base is spot on. Enjoyed your post; we’ll re-post about it in our own blog: http://www.lampsplus.com/info-center/b/blog/ Thanks again!

  5. Unfortunately I absolutely adore the one in the Entrance/Foyer that your friend AB is after. Has anyone seen this lamp ANYWHERE??? Really. Badly. Desperately. Want. It!!!!!!! Please. Great post, thank you.
