We took the hour and a half drive up to Stow, MA, and after taking F out to lunch to thank her for the lamp, we loaded it up in the car and took it home.
Now, you may be thinking, you drove over an hour just to get a lamp? Well, this isn't just any lamp. This is an original Arco lamp from the 1970's! This lamp belonged to F's mom, and was purchased new in the 70s. F had it in her house for a long time, but after purchasing and finding some other items, she no longer has the space for it.
After looking at the lamp, I knew that choosing to take this lamp was the right decision.
On the way home, we decided that this lamp will look perfect in the family room. If you remember the family room design, I think that instead of putting a table lamp on the white metal table between the couch and the chair, that we will put the base of this lamp in the corner behind the chair, and let it hang over the little table.

For right now, the lamp is being stored in a closet, but I can't wait to get this room put together! This is going to look spectacular!!!
What do you think of Arco lamps? Do you have one in your home?
