black and red clothespin floor lamp

michael sent me a photo of his tv room and it was instant lust. lots of ikea items in there, go spot ‘em. and yes, that’s tord boontje’s to-die-for “until dawn” curtain panel.


but the thing that really caught my eye is the little lamp on the right. it’s made from an ikea floor lamp base and topped with a black ikea lamp shade. the “spine” is from 2 packs of black and red clothespins from ikea. the proportions may seem out, but it totally works for me.

check out the tv room picture on flickr and mouse over the notes. that’s the fun bit. also, see this living room picture which is simply awesome.
