High/Low

I am a huge fan of the Bunny Williams Brushstroke Lamp. It is a stunning lamp and works beautifully with chinoiserie. It is adored by interior designers and often seen in show houses. But at $1,175, it is not in most budgets.

Bunny Williams Brushstroke Lamp in Blue and White


I found a great alternative at a great price. The one below is a fraction of the price. It even includes a linen lampshade and LED lightbulb. The Bunny Williams is for the lamp base only.


Aileen Blue and White Brushstroke Lamp


Also available in brown and white.

Bunny Williams Brushstroke Lamp in Brown and White


The brushstroke design is fresh and modern but classic with its double gourd design and plays very well with others. It would be great in a foyer, living room, or bedroom, used as a pair or individually.

  1. Quite a find...amazingly, (whispering) I might even like it more than Bunny's. HD's is bolder so a good contrast to busy patterns of blue and white porcelain (if one is inclined to place it near the lamp) and the brass base is cleaner, not as fussy as Bunny's.

  3. Plus, at the HD price, you can get a cobalt pagoda finial for the lampshade to goose it up a bit.

  5. Just a thought,but it really wouldn't cost much to have the bases changed on the less expensive lamps. An investment of $50 in materials and labor would give you something even more stunning at a still very low price

    1. True, but I like the cleaner lines of this base. For $5.00, one could get a bottle of Liquid Leaf and do the base if one preferred a gold leaf finish as opposed to the metal look.

  6. That is truly an amazing find, Beth. Several years ago, I purchased two Ralph Lauren "Daniela" table lamps, which I had been coveting for some time. They are french wired and have a large, many faceted crystal pedestal base with white silk shades. I searched and searched, but never found anything that came close, and still have not. I adore them. There was once a smaller, considerably less expensive, crystal lamp at Pottery Barn that would have made a very pretty accent lamp, but they no longer carry it. I think when something continues to call out to you like that, you have to take the plunge - just make sure to thoroughly read the merchant's return policy when you buy online.

    I love that top vignette of Amanda Lindroth's, and just purchased her book, "The Well Adorned Home", after having seen it on your site. She is so amazing!

    1. Just so we don't confuse people, Amanda Lindroth's book, a favorite of mine, is Island Hopping. The Well Adorned Life is Cathy Kincaid.

  7. Beth I have to hand it to you - your shopping skills are superb! I am buying this lamp ASAP. And the clam shell from Home Depot was quite a score as well. Now I feel like Home Depot rocks!
