How To Choose A Table Lamp

Table Lamps provide more than just light. They add an element of design and complete the style you are trying to achieve. Sometimes, we buy table lamps simply for the design aspect, but most often, we need lamps to provide function as well as style. Choosing the right lamp for your needs can be intimidating. Below are a few tips to help you make the right selection.

PURPOSE.

What type of lighting do you need for a particular space? Are you looking for a lamp that provides adequate lighting for reading, or simply create a beautiful ambiance for the room?

SIZE.

The height should be chosen depending on where the lamp is placed. For example, tall lamps look great on entry consoles or in large rooms with high ceilings. On side tables, make sure when seated you can’t see the inside of the fixture under the shade. Shorter lamps are ideal for desks and task lighting. Your shade should not extend beyond the table, console or dresser.

PLACEMENT.

If your furniture is floating and not against a wall, you will need to have floor outlets in the room. Also, consider the height and overall size of the accessories on the same table, console or dresser. You should use accessories with varying heights to create interest.

STYLE.

Think about the look you are trying to achieve. Lamps should compliment the existing style of the space, but also add a great design element. It’s fun to play with colorful shades. Navy looks great in a nautical inspired space. Clean white linen can blend in any decor.

Introducing….The RAINRAP

A Pineapple Girls’ Favorite!
This is a “Must Have” for the rainy season. Great for traveling too. As seen in OPRAH magazine, the RainRap is a fashionable and practical alternative to traditional bulky rain gear. The design combines the popular style of the pashmina and wrap.Show your school spirit and stay dry during football games! Our University of Florida Gators orange and blue and Florida State Seminoles garnet and gold Spirit RainRaps are fashionable and practical alternatives to traditional bulky rain gear, and are extra long for bleacher seating. These make great gifts, just in time for back-to-school!

Chair Obsessed

We are obsessed with these Aurora Dining Chairs. What makes them truly special is that they can be used indoors or outdoors! The chair has a metal base and synthetic rattan, aged to look realistic. The teak legs give a nice, organic look and the Sunbrella cushions are comfortable and practical! We added, comfort, color and style with this periwinkle and white pillow by John Robshaw.

The Lacquer Barrel Back Chairs (above) by World’s Away are crisp and modern. We love the white linen seat cushions, and sometimes recover in a fun fabric! The chairs are available in white, navy and green lacquer. We thought our Pink Hutch Pillows we a fun and playful addition. The White Hand Etched Vases are a great accent.

Decorating With Books

We have books to compliment any space in your home. Books are a great choice when placed on coffee, side tables or shelving. They look great stacked, leaning, or grouped together with frames, corals or other small decorative objects. Books provide the finishing touch, and also tell a meaningful story about you and what you love. Grouping books by color to blend with your decor, or selecting a large coffee table book that reflects your personal interests is the best way to work them into your decor.
Our collection of decorative books includes vintage collections, linen wrapped, color blocks and our popular quote books.

Beach Lovers Unite!

It’s officially beach season! Our ideal summer means lots of days at the shore…either on a boat or watching the kids splash around in the surf. Here’s to the calming sound of the ocean, sandy toes and sun-kissed shoulders!

Our Govino stemless wines are dishwasher safe! The  ideal way to enjoy all types of wine whenever proper stemware isn’t available, and perfect for the beach!

Shelf Candy

The right styling for shelving in your home can make a big difference in creating a space that feels complete. Balance and placement are important, but you should also consider using your personal collections that are meaningful to you. Displaying family photos in frames will help personalize your look.
We like using books, boxes, coral, picture frames, and other small accessories. Decorative bookends are functional and beautiful at the same time. The key is to create a pleasing look, that doesn’t look “decorated”.

Pillow Party

John Robshaw is one of our favorite designers. While traveling in India, Robshaw fell in love with the fabric-making traditions of the local artisans. The hands-on immediacy and vitality of textiles piqued what was to become a lifelong fascination.

Robshaw’s forays in Asia have taken him all over the world. In  India, John found that he could apply a painterly aesthetic to traditional methods by mixing up patterns and overlapping them in a more formally artistic way. His signature look was crafted: an updated spin on the exotic, handmade object; a vibrant mix of sophistication and romantic allure.

Check out our great selection of new arrival John Robshaw pillows! Hand printed, hand stitched and great designs, these pillows will be sure to freshen up any room in your home.
