With rowdy young ones, lamps can be in jeopardy. Many a playdate have I leapt to save a lamp! Floor lamps hold special appeal for toddlers. Mine in particular looks me straight in the eye while she shakes the lamp like a spindly tree! What is the PC appropriate discipline approach these days? Ack.
For a client’s loft-like living room strangely devoid of floor outlets—running cords to the perimeter of the room was a non-option (kind of a safety hazard for all involved)—we developed a stylish alternative. We found a chic and worry-free lighting solution in two drum pendants we hung from the ceiling and centered over the sofa side tables. Boy, did that ever look sharp! And, an added bonus, the treatment is kid or cat friendly, should you find yourself sheltering feisty ones of either variety.
