My current living room setting looks like this:
Although I am perfectly satisfied with it, you may easily recognize no less than three well-known IKEA items: the floor lamp, the couch pillows and the blue giraffe. In my opinion, the room does NOT look like page 62 from the IKEA catalog. I think that the art collection, the bean bags (spotted on the left) and the inherited couch say enough about my personal style.
So I don't have to worry about incorporating this iconic Ikea lamp. Still, I've been thinking a lot about switching it with something else...
My first thought goes, of course, to those lovely retro organic shapes that are my dream style:
I am sucker for Kubric's film sets, I would live in one of them all my life. But the above lamps do not match my current vibe in the living room. So I would go for an over-sized statement lamp like this:
Hmm... the room is too small... Then maybe choose a quirky lamp (somewhat classical in design - with a twist):
But if I truly listen to my gut, I'm in the mood of pimping me a granny lamp - Sibella Court style:
Definitely, granny style does it for me.
I'm just sad because I really like the Storm lamp, its proportions, its quiet beauty and its paper texture. And most of all, I love the way it diffuses the light in a warm glow around the room. So when I see the serene Swedish designers matching everyday Ikea items with high-end decorations...
... I wanna keep my lamp because it really makes me happy!
