An Alabaster Lamp

I can't resist an antique alabaster lamp. The petite size, creamy color and delicate carving make them so pretty.

But what I love best is how fun these lamps are to dress up. Just pop on a new shade and finial, and they look modern and cool. Drew Barrymore agrees - here's a peek inside her office. The black shade updates her lamp mmediately!

Some have lots of carved detail, others are simple and plain. They also have interesting color variation - off white to brown, and even pink.

Here's another beautiful example of an alabaster lamp makeover. Don't those shades look amazing?

I found this sweet alabaster lamp at Round Top, then reworked it with a linen shade, and an acrylic base and finial. It's in my shop now, although I admit, I am restraining myself from taking it home. 

That's the thing about these lamps - they just work in so many places (like my powder bath, kitchen, office...) But I'm going to be a good girl and sell it - $625 at Antique Row in Dallas. Message me and it can be yours!
