|Mid-century modern glow for under 200 CHF.|
After first eyeing this floor lamp in the window at the local Brockenhaus, I waited a few days before actually going into the shop to check it out. Fortunately for me, the lamp was still there and I decided to buy it. Standing about five feet tall and weighing the size of a small child, the schlepping of the lamp to the tram station five blocks away was not pretty. Nor was it a picnic to be standing at the back of the carriage with a gaggle of pre-schoolers intent on both knocking into me and stepping on my feet. Hugging the lamp to my chest I could do nothing but feebly request that they 'passt auf'. With sore arms the next day, I set the lamp up in the corner of the living room, turned it on and was very pleased indeed. Having found such a gorgeous and well-maintained mid-century modern design made almost being trampled by youngsters on the tram worth it.
