Robert Abbey Wavy Lamps in White

We haven't even begun welding Hubby's desk - yet - but I think I am ready to buy lamps for it!  Originally I wanted a pair of Lotte lamps but, while shopping for a friend's office makeover, I spotted the Robert Abbey "Wavy" lamp (you can find it on Amazon also):

The lamp is also available in mercury glass (#2) and a brown/amber glass (#1) that looks a bit tortoise-shell/beer bottle-y (this description is why none of my posts to date have been sponsored), but I am obsessed with the white.  It spoke to me. 

I think I love it because it reminds me of the Alvar Aalto vases I drool over (but am afraid to buy, for good reason).  I have but one, teeny-tiny Alvar Aalto piece (and only because it was a steal).

But a pair of the Robert Abbey lamps might be a nice (practical) way to achieve a similar mod look, and add a splash of curvaceous fun to the office. 


  1. I love love love ur choice :)..btw i m dying to see ur diy post on the desk..hope u finish it and do the post soon

  2. I know, I'm such a tease, right? But we sourced the material today and plan to stain the desk top tomorrow/Thursday. I'm hoping to have the desk completed by next week. Updates as we progress!

  3. The white is such a great choice!


  4. Is it bad that positive feedback makes me happier about my design decisions?

    Thanks for chiming in, ladies!

  5. I do the same thing - start decorating and buying things ahead of time. I love the white lamp. Gorgeous!

  6. The lamp is gorgeous, and I'm sure it will be the perfect choice for the desk.

    You're in good company putting the cart before the horse. Jenn and Joe are moving into their new loft in a little over a week, and all they have found for their living room is the rug. :)

  7. Dana: just a rug? Wow. Well, I'm sure, in their line of work, they won't have trouble filling their home with fabulous pieces. Lol. You MUST post pics for us once their space is decorated. It will be magazine worthy, no doubt! :)

  8. So adorable! We are loving your blog and things it just so full of great little ideas and creativity! You are fab!

  10. Love the lamps. I have been looking for some really nice lamps for our bedroom for a while, and no luck. This will look great.
