Floor Lamps

The other day I was at Target and found myself wandering around looking at lampshades and lamps. I always feel like Target is really lacking in the lamp and especially lampshades department. Is it just me, or does it seem like most of their lamps are for kids' rooms? Lots of pastel pinks and blues. Anyway, I found one drum shade that I liked that was actually a big step up for Target, but it was all bent and dinged (is that a word?) up, so I put it back on the shelf. 

I just ordered a new couch (!!), so now I am on the search for some new lamps for our living room. I am thinking of getting a floor lamp for the left side of our couch, so I went to in search of lamp-ness...and it delivered! is wayyyyy better at providing good design and options than my local store (I think since we live in the city we have a smaller Target, thus limited options?). Look at these contemporary beauties:

Nice, eh? I think they are much better than what I have seen at the store, for sure! 

And, they had this really awesome bird floor lamp that I couldn't get a picture of, but if you are so inclined, go to and check it is SO cute. It's a little gold/bronze-toned floor lamp with birdies at the top and a drum shade to add a little modern touch! SO cute. They also have a gold bird/twig wine holder holiday thing that I want as well. I'm just sayin'. Mom. I mean. I'm just sayin. :)


  1. These floor lamps are cute..! I too got a beautiful floor lamp from Target at very affordable price.

  2. sweet! Thanks for commenting. :) I am waiting for our couch to come before I make the plunge...which one did you get?

  3. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
