Came across a beautiful post about Poul Henningsen 's Artichoke Lamp by Leticia Blanco in Spain, on her Spanish/English blog, Vintage & Chic.

I love those lamps as well - I have the knock-off at home from Ikea - think I paid $10. Beautiful pics!

You know what I love about the artichoke lights? They are totally overdone in mags, but I adore them in real life. I don't often see them in person, which makes them phenomenal when you do see them in context.

Lovely images!

Jennifer -- yes, amazingly, it is the superchic Tampa Airport.

Franki -- couldn't agree more -- isn't wonderful to see the lamps outdoors and in an airport setting?
