Recent Retail Therapy

The days following Christmas turned out to have good shopping kismet for me. I found this pair of brass lamps at a goin'-outta-bizzness sale. Please tell me they aren't geriatric, because I like the silhouette, and they have substantial weight. I plan to use them on our desk/sofa table - replacing the buffet lamps I painted gold a few weeks back. These will be much, much better. Great shades needed, obvs.

Also, I found a pair of faux bamboo mirrors for my sister at Needless Markup Nieman Marcus Last Call. If you're unfamiliar, the home decor section features overstocks and "seconds" from the store, as well as the Horchow catalog.

We're still debating whether to use the pair (as planned), replacing the console with a larger buffet...
(Yes, the sponge-painted harlequin pattern will be remedied)

...or, to go singleton style

I'm usually a two-is-better-than-one kind of gal, but I'd love to hear your thoughts.
