Eye on Design | Paris | Tripod floor lamp

A few weeks ago, I told you about my chilly trip to the Paris flea market, and about the amazing lamps at the stall of Aline Bachelier.  (Did you see the video of her funny story?)

I couldn’t leave there empty-handed, so I bought a floor lamp.  As my criteria for purchases is most often limited to what I can fit in my suitcase, this may not seem like the wisest choice.

No problem.  The base is a 1930’s camera tripod…so it telescopes to a mere 15″ long.  Easy to fit in the suitcase! 

The shade, not so much.  Aline offered to ship it for me. 

The only problem turned out to be the postal service…I just got it this week.

All is well, and the lamp is happily ensconced in my apartment.
