Obsessed: Tripod Lamps

What’s not to love about this barn retreat featured in Elle Decor?

It’s obvious where one would sit to read or eat, and those places look inviting.  Thanks to warm exposed wood, the innate barn-iness is still intact.  A dollop of personality adds levity to all that structural respect and functionality.  See: zebra rug layered over an oriental, both butting up against a striped couch.  Just the type of bold Americana you’d expect from an owner like Michael Botbol, who oversees the women’s collections at Polo Ralph Lauren when he’s not holed up here.

My favorite element in the room above, the one I’d plop in my own home at a moment’s notice, is the tripod lamp.

Where can you find one that doesn’t reek of repro?  From a trusted vintage source.
