Ooh, my favorite!

Mini lamp hunting

Remember my new vintage french cabinet from a few weeks ago? I also casually mentioned that I was looking for a small lamp to place atop it, but really what I should have said was that I was stalking/hunting/obsessing. There are no mini table lamps out there! Even tried searching for a “bookshelf lamp” and while it was a little better, it was still mostly scary at how tacky people can be. Anyway, this little red guy here was a chance vintage find. Eeeh, he’s so cute and shiny! I can’t wait to see how it looks with the persimmon print. I found him at favorite Etsy shop AM Radio, a beautifully curated shop, modern vintage with a minimal eye.

While the hunt was tough, I should mention that there was ONE really great mini-lamp I came across…

…and even though it could have worked on the cabinet, it wasn’t exactly right. I still want it somewhere, at some point, but until I know precisely where, I shall just file it away. This is the Misewell Tokyo Lamp made sustainably by the award-winning Misewell brothers of Milwaukee. They really are a kick ass furniture design company. Check out more of the goods.

Made in the USA.  Tokyo I $245, Tokyo II $305.
