pairs of floor lamps...

Twins...
love them, want them, need them...
floor lamps!

They're an interesting alternative to the typical pair of table lamps,
very functional flanking reading chairs, and if you like symmetry you'll
be all over this look.

Have you ever tried them, or are a pair of table lamps more your style?

Btw, if you're curious I'd take twins (the real deal) in a heartbeat! :)

Love them and the symmetry speaks my name... I almost always prefer a set of lamps than just one! I have one vintage floor lamp that I'm using right now. My friend has a pair of floor lamps flanking her sofa table behind the sofa and they are fantastic!

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

I have never though of using a pair. What a great idea!

Julia Konya said...

Yes, love them. I'm always into symmetry!

Kim said...

Love a good floorlamp. They used to be pretty blah ... light designers are stepping up the design. I'd take two!! xo

I usually think of twin table lamps, but this looks awesome. I love symmetry with lamps even when nothing else is symmetrical.. Have a great day.

I have never thought of that but looks great! Symmetrical lamps just make everything else in a room make visual sense for some reason. A friend told me she hated symmetry in her house....WHAT? I love symmetry in a house!

I am in love with the feminine and elegant living room with the chinoiserie pillows. And the ceiling color and creamy walls of the quatrefoil mirror living room. You always come up with new images I have not seen before, Pam!

cindy @ a curious gardener said...

Aww,twins...my friend who has three grown boys keeps threatening her husband with adopting a baby girl! I bet you can relate!

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

oh I especially love that first picture! I think symmetry with lamps is so important :)

Dana Frieling said...

There's definitely something to be said about balance. I could totally see you as a mom of twins. Too funny!

Lori said...

I think the balance creates a peaceful look. Now I wish I could find the twin to the one I have!

I've had them and I do like the symmetry they give a space. {And speaking of twins…..we have lots of twins in my family. I'm dying for my 27 year old niece to get married and have babies so we can see if she'll have them! Her mom is a twin and her dad has twins on both his mother and father's side. We need babies in this family….people keep growing up! Jeez!!}

Alexa said...

Oooh that last one is my favorite. So glamorous!

Vel Criste said...

haven't yet Pam, I do love all your examples and makes me want to grab a pair! I have 3 floor lamps right now, but all singletons and tucked up in a corner somewhere. A twin would be great if you have limited space on your side tables. :-)

I used a pair of tripod floor lamps in a client's home a year ago. I LOVE the look! There are so many amazing floor lamps out there it's nice to put em to work ;)

Patty Day @Pattys Epiphanies said...

I like them! Never considered them. I especially liked the ones in the dining room photo.

Danielle said...

Never tried this but I'm in love with that picture from houzz with the blue walls! Gorgeous! x

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

i think i am definitely more a pair of table lamps girl, but i have to say i do love symmetry.

Vidya Sudarsan said...

Twins are looking very elegant in your picks here :)Symmetry is always very pleasing for the eye.

Julie Taylor and Danni Greenwalt said...

i did that in my last clients home...it looked fabulous!

Peggy said...

I am all about symmetry so this is definitely up my alley. I've used identical table lamps but the idea of floor lamps is more appealing than I can even begin to express. I think it just may be what we are looking for in our own living room! Once again you continue to inspire!! Thank you!!
