Speaking of Southerners and Dramatic Lamps...




I know. I'm becoming a bit redundant with the continual posting of the Lisa Fine Paris apartment pictures. But they are just such a perfect fit with this roll we're on about glamorous lamps and contemporary Southern style.




More than eight years ago, Mississippi-born textile designer Fine was ahead of the curve; in her 7th-arrondissement flat she mixed bold lamps with classic furnishings, the way one might accessorize a black turtleneck with jeweled earings. The brass lamp in the guest bedroom is French, 1950s.

All images above, except picture five, photographed by Ivan Terestchenko for Elle Decor, August 2000. The fifth photo appeared in American Vogue Living, 2006.

She really was ahead of the curve, wasn't she! I never tire of seeing these photos.
