I'm in love with my new Garland lamp...

...although it's not really new. I bought the Garland lamp by Tord Boontje at Habitat at least 5 years ago. But I never knew where and how to hang my Garland lamp. Now that we changed rooms and the Maskros lamp from IKEA is too large and kind of too dominant for our new, smaller living room. So I decided to give the Garland lamp a try. Like I read on the internet before it was a pain in the ass to wrap it nicely around the lighting fixture and the bulb. And of course I didn't like the way it looked on the light fixture alone. (I guess you need two garlands to wrap it nicely around the light fixture without showing too much of the fuxture.) So I detangeled parts of it again (Ugh!). Added the lamp shade. Arranged the garland again inside and at the bottom of the shade. And ta-da. The garland and the shade look perfect together. I love it. Now I just need to buy a different bulb...

I'm in love with my Garland lamp...it took me years to figure out where to hang it but it's perfect in our new living room
