Modern Animal Lamps

I was delighted to see this four-year-old boy’s room featured in Traditional Home Magazine this month. The room was designed by Melissa Warner of  Massucco Warner Miller design firm in San Francisco.  I love the boldly painted horizontal stripes of navy and white paired with a pop of mandarine orange.  It almost lends itself to a modern nautical feel.  To make the room more juvenile Melissa added a Jonathan Adler Giraffe Lamp (pictured below).  Although I adore this lamp and I think it can be used for years in a home it carries a hefty price tag of $395.

To get a similar look with a fraction of the price, I suggest these adorable paper lamps found at B. Braithwaite in Atlanta, GA.

They only cost $88 each and also come in bear and elephant shapes as seen below.

Now please excuse the quality of the next image, I only had my mobile phone on me when I saw this lamp and it is not available on-line.  For an inexpensive modern porcelin lamp, this elephant from Pottery Barn Kids is adorable.  You can’t beat the $59 price tag.  They are only available in stores and the Atlanta store has plenty in stock (check your nearest Pottery Barn Kids for details).

If you want the option of a little more color, I also like the whimsical MyPetLamps by Offi. They are available in six colors: soft white, mellow yellow, sky blue, sunset orange, hot pink and misty green.  They are made of non-toxic odorless plastic and the low voltage 12v replaceable bulb creates a soothing glow in a child’s room.

The Dachshund & TerriBear cost $59 each. Happy Shopping!

These are terrific and a great find since the animal theme is often used. Speaking of lamps, I saw the most adorable one at P Barn Kids last week. The base was a stack of tea cups.....soooo sweet.

Target has some animal lamps like the last bear in the photo and they cost less than $20. I bought a pig lamp for our daugther, and they can be used plugged in or not (while the battery lasts).
