Mid Century Desk Lamp
My mom downsized and I just had to have this mid century desk lamp that is in the shape of a flower. There's something really corny about it, maybe the green leaf, but at the same time there something really cool about it. It's not trying to convince you it's a real plant or even a good representation of a real plant. There's a certian honesty to it in that respect. And if you put this lamp in your home, it wasn't like you were trying to impress everyone. It was just fun and it's still just fun.
I can imagine sitting around back in the early 1960s watching the Judy Garland show on a black and white TV with this lamp on the end table. And of course you'd want an ashtray right next to it in case someone wanted to smoke.. Where's my ashtray?
