French Striped Happiness From PB

Okay, I’ll admit it — I love Pottery Barn maybe a tad too much.

My friend, Alan, teases me about it all the time.

Whatever.  It can’t be helped.

Not when Pottery Barn keeps churning out

Frenchie-striped happiness like this!

First, let’s look at some Frenchie-stripe PB groovies I already own:

We just got that Eames recliner repro this past year,

+ G.O. made the lamp from an old surveyor’s tripod.

I have an old pair of Crate + Barrel candlestick lamps

that have kind of fallen off my favorites list.

The good news:

I just know these awesome shades

will make me super LOVE them again!

Stay tuned.

Once they’re sporting their new shades,

my plans for my old Crate + Barrel lamps

 are to place them on one of these:

IKEA trestle table -- scraphacker

. . . which will go behind our sofa,

which will go in this large bay in our new living room:


I am officially on a spending high!
