Best Of: Glass Lamps

Jane wrote to me the other day, inquiring about a glass lamp in a favorite image from the Better Homes & Gardens galleries and also appearing on page 10 of the recent publication New Cottage Style.

“Hi Kate, I have been looking at pictures of living rooms in the New Cottage Style by Better Homes and Gardens.  There is a particular room that I love – it has a fireplace, and a funky bright turquoise coffee table. There are two glass table lamps – round bases with white tapering shades. Can you tell me where to find these lamps?”  – Jane

From her description, I immediately knew it was this image of a picture perfect cozy coastal inspired family room.

Jane was smitten with the lamps and I did my best to find them online for her.  ‘Tis true, the glass jug shape lamp has a little of everything!  It’s casual, elegant, timeless, and complements every style of decor.
