Love these art deco figures! I bought an art deco table lamp recently in a similar style and can’t wait for her to arrive from her long journey from Canada to Australia. For now the lamp will be used solely for decorative purposes - I don’t think I’ll have it re-wired for use anytime soon. But I am planning to have it placed directly amongst some modern everyday items to make for an unusual mix.
I have to say, if you’re somebody like me who loves many interior styles and furniture both old and new, shopping for the home can be a pretty tough task! There is the rare occasion where I might hesitate on buying something because I’m afraid it might disrupt the overall look of my apartment layout; but then again, the homes that fascinate me the most are the ones that feel the most intimate or natural. By that I mean the homes that show scattered glimpses of the person/people they house, not only in terms of what their aesthetic is, but their character as well. Sometimes the glimpses can be obvious; other times they only become apparent when you start to get more of a sense of what that person is like ... Anyway, so I decided to keep this mindset when shopping for my apartment: if I love it enough, I’ll find a home for it at my place. (All images from Pinterest)
