This articulating lamp from Michele Varian is quite nice. It’s almost there for me. I love the wood base and the burnished brass finish on the shade. What I don’t love is the cord. Call me crazy, but I wish it was cloth covered, not clear plastic. When I started asking questions about the lamp, Michele pointed me to this gold pretty that is featured below – it’s available only in the shop, not on the website. While they don’t turn left and right, they are adjustable both up and down. I love the shape, the scale and the matte gold color.Want to be reminded of where I plan to put these articulating brass task lamps? Click here to read more.
