Ever see a piece of furniture that you love and think, can I just find something that looks almost exactly like this, only cheaper?
Trust me you can. I mean with the internet anymore, the amount of possibilities is endless.
This brass task lamp comes from Schoolhouse Electric and is gorgeous. However it is $275, and it may not work within the budget you have set for yourself.
So, never force yourself to spend money on something you can’t afford. Find a piece that works for you and you wont have to compromise on the style. With the internet at your disposal, it’s easy to find other pieces which are all very similar in style and finish. The price is all well below the original. Which one is your favorite?
Restoration Hardware is a favorite of mine. Their vintage brass torpedo lamp, at $199, is so pretty and would make any room instantly nicer. Totally.
West elm has this almost replica for $69. Pretty great right?
Pottery Barn has this beautiful lamp for $63. No it may not look like an exact copy, but its brass finish and sleek design is mighty nice.
Urban Outfitters has the Gumball Desk Lamp for $59. As you can clearly see the gold finish may not be that brass finish you see above, but its shiny gold finish and modern style is certainly okay by me.
