SPOTTED: My HomeGoods find In Lonny's office

We all know the distinct pleasure of a bargain find.

And readers of this blog know I have a love affair with HomeGoods lamps.  While the quality is not top notch, they just do an amazing job of producing low-cost knock-offs of high end lamps.  Some of their lamps seem to be OVER produced, and you see a bunch of them at each store, but every once in a while you see a sort of one-off lamp that is super unique and you wonder how it got there (but first you snap it up.)

Such was the case with my office lamp.  I spotted it, had NO clue where I would use it, but grabbed it anyway because I loved it so.

It ended up in the office, where it works because it has a similar color value as the orange Eames chair (i.e. they are similarly bright and clear), and because there's plenty of yellow in the office gallery wall.

The cowhide rug brings in a natural element and grounds all that psychedelic color.  (We're working on the desk situation.  While I actually don't mind the casual plywood on file cabinets thing, we do need a bit more space, and the room could use a desk with a bit more weight.)

All in all, the office is one of my favorite spaces in our house, even though, in a way, it is the most "unfinished."

It was icing on the cake to get a gander at the new Lonny offices in the latest issue and to spot my fabulous yellow lamp, and to discover just what a bargain I got.

My price tag: $49.99 (on the high end for HomeGoods.)  The Lonny lamps?  $458.  Each.
