Swank Lighting Lamp WINNER!!!Monday, July 11, 2011
Still in recovery mode from my weekend extravaganza in Vegas hosting Annie's bachelorette bash. It will probably take me all day to sort and extract the "PG-rated" pics to share and post so hang tight and make sure to come back for exclusive coverage tomorrow :D
In the meantime, CANNOT believe my dang luck as I entered an online contest and won this incredibly unbelievable pair of $3400.00 Murano Lamps from High Gloss Magazine courtesy of Swank Lighting. Ahhhhhhh!!! Isn't she a beauty??
Defined ribs, controlled bubbles, and 24 KT gold throughout, I am seriously not worthy guys. I've been ogling Swank's lamps since seeing them all over the web, trade magazines, and lately online shelter mags where they've graced gorgeous interiors by Tobi Fairley, Sex and the City 2 (Carrie and Big's apartment), and Palmer Weiss, to name a few.
Swank Lighting was born after Ed Sexton and Doug Taylor salvaged vintage Murano lamps from the 40's, 50's, and 60's, bought the entire inventory and spent the last few years completely restoring crates upon crates of these Venetian Art Glass Lamps to their original splendor and updating them to reflect a 21st century aesthetic. The result? An amazingly unique and versatile collection of the most stunning lamps in materials ranging from hand blown Italian glass, mineral rocks, corals, and ceramic that not only become working, living pieces of art work themselves, but do double-duty posing as accent lighting for the most refined of upscale interiors.
My personal picks from their online catalogue:
After winning the pair for myself, I'm literally going to start purchasing the lot for every single residence I'm designing. In this case, thank goodness my clients will foot the bill...Phew! ;D
Thank you soooooo much to High Gloss Magazine and Doug Taylor and Ed Sexton from Swank Lighting for the giveaway! Can't wait to show off my new babies!
