So it's no surprise that I found the catalogue a bit of snooze. In fact, it took me 3 separate attempts to get all of the way through it. After a while I started playing "find the color" in a useless attempt to find anything that wasn't a neutral.
However, I've always had a thing for Restoration Hardware lighting. Well, not this lighting - I think this is obnoxious.
I was smitten when I stumbled upon the barn light.

What - you were distracted by the monstrous Eiffel Tower?

Then I thought it was a little big (which is how I would describe 99% of Restoration Hardware's stuff). But - lucky me! - it comes in three sizes. (Unlucky me - the smallest is still $250.) And unlike most of Restoration Hardware's sconces - these babies are plug-ins.
I kind of have a perfect place for it - a weird corner in the living room where I currently have the Audrey picture (still matless after a year and a half). Unfortunately, the art is not working there. I was planning on getting a statement floor lamp - but this multitasker would handle the lighting, wall, and decor situation in one fell swoop. Which would make the big price tag a bit easier to swallow.
It will probably be pushed onto the list of "Items I Will One Day Buy When They Are On Sale and Hopefully Before They Get Clearanced Out." Man, that list is getting long.
