This staph infection incidence turned out to be a therapeutic experience. I was like under house arrest this weekend without the fuss of an electronic ankle bracelet. I took a break from the gym (you know how obssessed I am), canceled all my social engagements. Instead, I spent all day Sat catching up on my sleep, going through a pile mail the size of Mount Fuji, and tidying up my apartment. While I was sorting through my old mags, I came across the April 2007 issue of Elle Decor. On the glossy cover page, next to the artwork by Ana Garcia Pan, was the wing chair by Fritz Henningsen you have been lusting after!
Every once and while, one will come across a little desk lamp by Serge Mouille on Ebay:
The Serge Mouille floor lamp, the French Signal lamp by the company Jielde, and the silver plated brass equilibrium desk lamp by Edouard Bouquet are my three favorite lamps in this world!
The original French Signal lamp was designed as an adaptation of railways lights, sturdy, industrial, elegant and flexible to bring light in any direction you desire.
The Signal desk lamp also comes in 18 different colors! It's listed on Shophorne.com for $405...not bad at all!
The equilibrium lamp was designed in 1924 and was reissued in the 80s. They currently go for ~ 3000 EUR. It's either two of these...
or a pre-loved 40 cm Hermes HAC Birkin...tough choice!
