Vintage & Repurposed Lamps at WK

April 6, 2012

20120406-072248.jpg I wrote last week in a post that I have a fondness for solo chairs. I think I have a similar love for singular, vintage lamps. A quick stroll the other day through the Home store, and I snapped a few lamps that are repurposed using everyday items like spools & coffee pots. There were also some vintage alabaster lamps that I have joined with wire shades that have a fun vibe too.
