It used to be that Urban Outfitters was hit-or-miss, and lately they've fallen mainly in the "miss" bin. (Um...bedazzled Keds, anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Yeah.) And we've heard mixed reviews on Urban's attempt at furniture. At worst, they're one "Everyone Loves a Hipster" tshirt shy of a Forever 21. At best, they're like the el cheapo depot version of a Jonathan Adler boutique. Which, when we found this sweet spindle lamp among the rubble of half-off kama sutra flashcards, is not necessarily a bad thing.
The lines are pretty classic, we love the lacquer-like shiny finish, and the versatility of lampshade styles that we could throw on top. The base comes in two different colors (kelly green and white), and the best part is that it's...$36!
