"I Love Lamp"

In May 2010 Southern Living featured the home of Barbara Cosgrove, a lamp designer living in Kansas City.  Images via Southern Living

I feel like I've been saying this a lot lately, but I love the way Cosgrove mixed different chairs in the same color upholstery for her dining area; I also love the way she used chairs that would normally be reserved for a living space at her dining table! 

Grouping of Artwork from local artists in her area. 

Of course a lamp designer is going to have great lighting in her home.. 

View Cosgrove's work here. My favorite pieces are as follows:
Silver Gourd Lamp

White Gourd lamp

Gaga for gourds like I am??? How about a table too? 

Who doesn't love an ugly, little pair of foo dogs!?! 

Reminds me of my lovely artichoke vase from HomeGoods! 

Non-Illumination Items Include: 

I've been looking for a clock or a small piece of artwork for above our kitchen sink. This would fit the bill, but it just so happens to cost a few too many bills... :) 

I'm beginning to think every home should have antlers of some sort. ;) 

What do you think of Cosgrove's designs?? 




  1. I especially love the art on the wall!

  2. The lamps are great, unfortunately when we were re-doing our house my husband had some inappropriate choice words to share about gourd lamps or lamps that appear to be balls stacked on one another. Juvenile I know, but now that's all I can ever think of :)
