Fun and Funky Anthro Lamp



Just look at the elements of this fabulous object.......wire...canvas....floral fabric patches....



In the shape of a globe.....a spinning wonderful world....with spectacular crazy continents....



Found this fun and funky lamp at the sale table in Anthropologie several weeks ago.....Without any hesitation and as several other savvy Anthro shoppers watched ... I swooped it up and made my purchase....they oooed and aahhed as I was leaving with my prize....
But one woman looked a bit perplexed and seemed concerned....I offered an explanation...."for the lake house in the Adirondacks".......
"Oh!", she exclaimed with obvious relief...." That will be perfect there!"....



She was right! Do you agree?

Lucky thing you were quick to swoop it up. It's like nothing I've ever seen. Great fabric,great shape...it's so you! I've only been to Anthropologie once with Paula and Ginny. We must have been there for over 3 hrs..... they had to drag me out of the place.
xo,
Carole
