Thing is, I haven't figured out how to solve this problem. Nothing I think of seems right. So I've decided to open this up to my readers in the hopes that someone might have a brilliant idea.
Here's how it will work. If you find a light fixture or lamp that I like, and which can meet the requirements detailed below, then I will buy it, install it, and post a picture with profuse thanks. I'm open to any suggestions: It can be from a website, some store, or even the Salvation Army. If for some reason it's a lamp that exists only in your town, then I will coax you into sending it to me and I will reimburse any expenses.
As for requirements, here's what we're dealing with:
- Should probably be pendant or wall-mounted -- there's no room for a floor lamp
- Must be plug-in (no rewiring allowed in this rental)
- If pendant, can't be too wispy and light, because the air vent blows out right above it and we can't always be doing hurricane in my apartment
- No IKEA (which is too bad, because they have lots of plug-in pendant lamps)
Up-lighting. Home Depot. It sits on the floor and directs the light up to the ceiling. There is a hing on the bottom of the fixture that holds the light bulb so you can direct the angle of the light. creates a great visual. About 6" high, about 3" across. Love mine! No kittens... Lady
How about this one?...
Norwell 8471 Maggie SwingArm Swing-Arm Wall Sconce
It's also a plug-in. Hope you find what you're looking for.
Well I was going to recommend this one
but I realized it would show the hideousness that is a CFL bulb.
Then I thought... who wouldn't want a green and turquoise orb!? And I found this one!
Something to match your red blanket...
I actually think this one could be cool!
2 if by sea!
I think this is my favorite. Nice texture, can't see the bulb, Satin nickel and ceramic so it's not light weight...
I FOUND THE WINNER!!!
Maybe you could find something to cover the cord.
Here's two more...
Found a couple of interesting option at Pier 1: the twited wood floor lamp and the link floor lamp.
Stay tuned! Contest-related announcements to come shortly...
