We don't have a lot of table lamps in our house, aside from an old one in our bedroom, and it's just not an item that I ever consciously think about purchasing. Perhaps it's because they're always too expensive, or the fact that we just don't have a lot of space for lamps.
Well, while I was out and about today, I stopped in Pier1 for no particular reason (always a dangerous idea). I almost ended up buying more Christmas clearance decor, until I discovered a selection of 50% off table lamps that I couldn't seem to drag myself away from. I'll be the first to admit it was definitely an impulse purchase, but I ended up leaving with not just one, but two lovely lamps:
Ecru Serena Lamp - $19.98 (originally $40)
This lamp replaced the antique-y looking one we previously had our bedroom end table. A very sophisticated upgrade!
I knew I wanted this one right away when I saw it, but wasn't quite sure where it would go. For now, this beauty is residing on an end table in our living room.
I must say that I'm pretty happy with these purchases! Not too shabby for just over $50 (right?). I have a newfound appreciation for table lamps and how they can transform the look of a room. And I'm glad I decided to put my money toward these, which will be seen everyday, instead of more Christmas stuff! :)
