I wasn’t necessarily looking for new lamps, but I found them last week. They are blue and white and made to live in my house.
Apparently, Marshall’s and TJMaxx (and probably HomeGoods, too?) are getting some Visual Comfort lamps lately. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, it’s a designer brand, normally sold to-the-trade.) I’ve spotted a couple of different styles in the last month. (And, I noticed that people are snatching them up and listing them on Ebay for 3x the price.)
It’s not the cheapest lamp I’ve ever bought. After all, you know I’m a girl that likes her $1 lamps. But, it’s still a great price for the brand, and I figured I’ve used enough thrifted lamps in my house over the years that I can splurge a little every now and then. (What can I say? I was trained to shop sale racks. I’m the queen of justifying my purchases.)
Plus, I just really love them and am 99% sure they’ll stand the accessory test of time for me. They always say that it’s smart to invest in timeless pieces when it comes to your wardrobe. I think the same is true for your home.
Of course, what’s worth the investment for me might be totally different for you. For example, I couldn’t justify putting a lot of money into nice furniture—especially upholstery—at this season of our lives. It just doesn’t line up with how we use our home. But, a pretty pair of lamps that I can look at and enjoy every day while they’re (hopefully) tucked safely away on top of our piano? That feels okay to me.
What pieces do you think are worth investing in around the house?
