fun lighting is a quick way to update a room. change out a lamp shade, get a new lamp all together or what i love doing is finding an old discarded lamp at a second hand store and make it all shiny and new again. just a little polish, metallic paint, wiring, bulb, shade and you are done.
believe me it is that simple, but if you want it to really be shiny and new, the cindy table lamp by kartell is perfect. it retails for $350 and the color selection is amazing.
the lamp is typical of the seventies with it’s form and color. the cindy lamp with a conical lampshade and rounded teardrop base comes in a broad range of all matte metallic tones: platinum, dark gold, mint green, orange, blue, pink, gun metal and violet. cindy’s special feature is its shiny chrome-like finish that gives it just that twist of the contemporary, that touch of richness, radiating a multitude of iridescent reflections.
