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.
