do yourself a favor and go to los angeles craigslist, just for shits and gigggles. it actually kind of pissed me off it was so good. i mean it's still craigslist, and you do have to rummage through a heaping pile of shitfuckstack to get to the awesomeness.
ms. smart (you probs know her from her blog and/or her comments on your blog) asked me for some cool lamps and art storage, here's what she wrote:
"Dang, you are good at that.
I need a cool floor lamp for my living room. What do you think tiger lady? Pasadena, CA (Los Angeles area). I have dark wood, red silk chairs, brown leather. Think urban condo - modern, fancy, artsy, a bit of leopard, French interior kinda. I also need an art area solution. "
here is my inspiration pic (elle decor):
mid century floor lamp- $175 all of these lamps i picked are way cool and would turn a room filled with antiques into a chic and modern space.
brass floor lamps- $25 each or $40 for both personally i think this is about themost ridiculously awesome deal in the history of deals. get them, both! srsly look no further.
mid century pole lamp- $80 good but the ones above are better.
arc floor lamp- $75 pretty cool too!
vintage mid century copper bamboo floor lamp- $150 also good.
wooden asian bowls and stands- $5 how cool is this loot? good for your arty stuff? as i see it they are like pedestals for your paints. give them reverence.
wooden decorative accessories- $18 like cool trays to gather your paints and supplies and keep order among them.
vintage white metal shelves- $350 these are fuckballs expensive. but very cool. baskets don't come with but a few of those wooden things above would be cool.
west elm shelves- $100 also cool. good for a small space.
handmade rustic cabinet and hutch- $250 i thought this was the cat's paws. so unique and a big place to store your stuff. it's handmade!! what better place to store your handmade's. great price too. it's soooo bali.
antique music stand- $150 cute. good for papers and what not.
steel ornate victorian display case- $125 love this. it's steel!! and it's ornate.
vintage metal shelves- $30 i love these mixed in with dark wood floors and rich antiques.
so ms. smart i surely hope i have provided you with some sort of love.
go forth and craig.
