I have long admired these gorgeous lamps . . .
I think a pair of them would be stunning on a buffet, console table or even as bedside lamps in a master bedroom. But at $645.00 each, they are just not in the budget here at the Smith T house.
So, here's my idea for a knock off of them. I have not tried this, but the idea is so simple I am confident someone out there in Internet land has thought of this and actually completed the project. If you are listening, please send me a picture and your thoughts!
Take a pair of these at $20 each . . .
Turn them upside down and add this (to what was the bottom but is now the top) using a glue specifically for bonding metal to glass . . .
Or, if you're just not up for a DIY project, take the vase to a lamp shop, along with a picture of the original and ask them to do it for you. It really is a nominal fee compared to what you would pay for the original.
Then add a tapered drum shade like this (along with a bulb clip) . . .
And you've got yourself a very high end lamp for less! M.
