One of my favorite discoveries at WorldMarket.com: Loden Arc Floor Lamp Base Dan - this is unavailable online but I could check Des moines for you. Great Deal. Target has one too but this one's better. I bet Lowes has one too. Let me know if you want me to check. I still like the tripod lamps better but if you need lite in that corner you might have to do this.
arch rival. A simple brushed round nickel base grounds a wide sweeping arc over six feet high, culminating in a slim ring of cotton/poly with naturally occurring linen slubs. Matching fabric diffuser conceals bulb, softens the glow. Full-range dimmer adds to the light show. A dramatic arc over sofa or chaise. Or a novel un-chandelier over the dining table. Foot dimmer switch. 150W bulb (not included).
