I watched The Time Traveller's Wife a while ago and this cool eyeball lamp really stood out.
I want one and I want it yellow but I'll take orange or green or maybe even white. Unfortunately I've only been able to find a modern equivalent in chrome (via Maisons Du Monde). This would be perfectly adequate if it weren't for the colour - I want a little sunshine in my life!
Another pic to get some idea of size - 160cm tall and good sized [...ahem] balls:
However, Ms 1950s Atomic Ranch has given me an idea. In a comment to my previous post about drink trolleys, she suggested spraying over the trays with paint (if they were metal). Is it possible to spray paint the lamp yellow? And if possible, would it look any good?
Sure, I'd prefer vintage but there doesn't seem to be any around and I do worry about the safety of vintage electrical items. That said it also seems a bit silly to me to buy something new and 'vandalise' it. Hmmm...
