One day Mel and I were in the garage of our new home and a friendly face drove up and stopped right in front of our house. It was our friend Tom who Mel and I originally met at The Antique Company in Sacramento. Tom is such a socialite and he was soo eager to see the home we had just moved into. While we were showing him around he saw our oak leaf floor lamp.
When Tom saw this lamp he froze, turned to us and said, “I have the matching table lamps to that oak leaf floor lamp”. When he got home he texted over pics of the table lamps.
Tom suggested that we trade our floor lamp to complete his set for a Moss floor lamp he had. We were a little skeptical and also lamp heavy so we said we’d consider the trade after seeing his Moss lamp. Once he brought the Moss lamp over Mel and I were sold!
The lamp shade on this lamp is fantastic! The lamp has these cool Lucite rods that flank the brass center. The black bowl in the middle is a planter. This piece makes quite a statement in the room.
This shade has a great art deco pattern and is in amazing shape.
This lamp really goes well with the dancing Carlo of Hollywood pieces behind it.
This lamp will be a great companion to our pink butterfly frieze chair. We are so grateful to Tom for his trade and I think both parties are happy with the exchange.
Your new floor lamp and shade are fantastic. The shade casts such a warm light. I think lamps are the most important aspect in a room. And, your butterfly chair is not too shabby either. It is wonderful!

Is the barkcloth original to the shade?
Hi Laura. I checked the Moss book and I found that Moss did manufacture cloth shades like the one that is on our lamp. It doesn’t appear to have been reupholstered, but I can’t tell for sure.
