Well, after seeing the couch in the space, I still was set on the arc lamp, but Chris felt like it might shrink the room which would be against what we were going for especially since adding recessed lighting and taking out that duck-inducing ceiling fan. There wasn’t much room on either side of the couch, so a floor lamp was really the only thing that made sense:
Then, on a whim one afternoon, I moved the living room lamps to the family room and they felt so perfect there:
Like, really, really charming. Amiright?
And without even realizing it, we ordered the exact lamp from CB2 that was pictured in the family room’s mood board for the living room. It arrived yesterday, and I put it together myself (with a little help hinderance from Greta) in about 45 minutes.
I snapped a photo last night so you can see how she shines at night. Sorry for the blurriness, I must have been real excited about the amount of light it gives off.
In short, it all worked out. We are smitten on all accounts, although the new lamp has kind of started a mini-revamp for the living room. But. BUT, I am trying to push the thoughts out of my head until we finish the studio and the family room.
