Visually Comforted!

Wednesday, July 01, 2009 | Category: Lighting

That’s how I feel after waiting six long months for these Visual Comfort lamps to come in.


{Alexa Hampton- Humphrey Table Lamp in Ivory Porcelain}


I purchased these for my mom’s formal living room and what was originally on backorder for only a few months unfortunately turned into six so you can imagine our excitement when these finally arrived a few days ago!


The living room originally looked like the below- with the mirrored consoles against the wall and the sofa in the middle of the room…my mom moved it around today to see what the couch would look like against the wall (above).  Which arrangement do you like better? I’m torn!



You really can’t go wrong with Visual Comfort lighting.  Every single piece is drop dead gorgeous! Their collections consist of pieces designed by well known interior designers such as Thomas O’Brien, Alexa Hampton, Barbara Barry, Michael Smith, and Suzanne Kasler, to name a few.  Everything they produce is just so classy and can go in a more traditional setting or a more modern setting.  Such versatile, timeless, and tasteful lighting- it’s a wonder why I specify any other company!

Here are a few of my favorites:


Alexa Hampton- Kate Table Lamp in Polished Nickel


Alexa Hampton- Myrna Chandelier in Polished Nickel


Studio- Gourd Lamp in White Glass


Barbara Barry- Simple Scallop Pendant


Thomas O’Brien- Large Hicks Round Pendant


Suzanne Kasler- Quatrefoil Floor Lamp in Gilded Iron


Grande Round George II Chandelier in Crystal


Large Paris Flea Market Chandelier in Antique Brass


Medium Round Edwardian in Polished Nickel


Pimlico Table Lamp in Bronze


Balustrade Table Lamp in Crystal


Large Ring Table Lamp in Alabaster


Large Antique Mirror in Antique Mirror and Antique Brass

Yay! I am so glad you got the lamps. They look wonderful in your mom’s living room. VC lighting really is worth the wait. You cannot beat the quality for the price and you are right…the designs are timeless.

Those are gorgeous lamps! I’m in the market for a couple of large lanterns, for my entry. Does it always take so long to get lighting?

I totally agree Paloma- their lighting is flawless! You are so lucky you have the insider info to VC (and the warehouse sales!)

Shela- usually lighting doesnt take that long (these were on backorder- hence the long lead time!)
I’ve gotten sconces from them before that arrived in a week or two! Good luck with the lantern- I LOVE lanterns in an entry!

I think I like the living room arrangement with the sofa away from the wall. You’ve found some really beautiful lighting – I love the George II Chandelier & the Balustrade Table Lamp 🙂
