Loopy Lamps



Ever since I spotted Anthropologie's white ceramic Mandeville lamp base ($398) a few weeks ago, I've been thinking it looks so familiar. Then last night, while flipping through Modern Glamour: The Art of Unexpected Style I noticed the vignette with black desk above and made the connection. At the moment, Anthropologie has quite a few white ceramic pieces that resemble objects Kelly Wearstler has used over the years.

BTW, the floor to ceiling mirrored window shown below in the Atlanta Anthropologie is stunning, and there is also an enormous Dorothy Draper style exaggerated Baroque mirror in the store. The frame has that Draper "cake frosting" quality but it is not the glossy white Draper would have specified. Rather, it has that rougher, worn Anthropologie quality.
