One can never have too many light fixtures

This evening my husband starting looking at light fixtures on eBay. Turns out it's because he had no clue what to get me for Christmas. He found a REALLY cool wall mounted light fixure (I confirmed it's coolness with him) and he decided to bid on it for me. And after several last minute bids, he won. The listing said "70's arc lamp from Dijkstra. The lamp has a metal chromed arc and brown plastic shade which lights up yellow/beige. The shade has a diameter of 27 cm and the total reach of the arc is 90cm. The lamp is in perfect condition! The chrome shines perfect and the shade is free of marks." The seller is from the Netherlands, which means I'll likely receive this in time for Valentine's day (and have to have it rewired). Regardless, I adore it. THANKS JEFF!!!

As we say here in Australia "Holy snapping duck shit!" Jeff will you marry me and buy me lights like that. It would go wonderfully with my lamps. Yes definitely need to marry Jeff.

Heh. That's so sweet of him, and such a cool lamp. If this had happened a couple of months ago, I could have brought it to Ottawa in my suitcase for you!

oh my giddy aunt that *was* gorgeous! were you able to replace the shade? cos the arms are sexy as.

I found something similar on Craig's List. Hopefully you were able to repair it or you can find a replacement!

Oh - that one is cool Saylavee! Actually, the seller emailed my husband yesterday to say the replacement shade is on it's way. :-)
