antique wallpaper rollers

House Beautiful

I'm a big chinoiserie fan, so I really liked this bedroom featured in the latest issue of House Beautiful. The nightstand and the Chinese screens (hung upside down) are really working for me.  How do you like those lamps made from antique wallpaper rollers? I think they're a great look with the chinoiserie vibe.
I did a little looking around online.....

...and I found these locally at Antiques on Augusta in Greenville, SC. This shop is really the best in the area for unique antiques. These lamps are offered by McElreath/Bates, dealers and designers.  I consider these guys my style and design gurus.   

I love how the "top" plate is prominent on this one...

...and that the two lamps are not a matched pair - much more interesting that way...

(don't even get me started on that fabulous pair of antique stone lions) 

I was glad to see this pair of lamps in person. If you are local, I'd recommend a stop at Antiques on Augusta. If you are not local, this shop totally worth the trip.

some kind of wonderful...

This is one of my favs - all the gray tones, the stone buddha, the fabric on the chair, the books, the art......
