hekmanPosted: June 25, 2010
the same day i bought my fake saarinen tulip table and chairs set (they’re actually “krueger,”) i also nabbed a great little entryway table/console table. it’s a hekman. boy, that was a banner day for finding good stuff at el next-to-nothing-o prices. i hopped onto ebay and another site selling hekman and found nary a piece of furniture that resembled this. everything seemed ornate and frilly. strange. i must’ve gotten my hekman from their better design days.
and along with that, got an industrial looking table lamp. from what i can gather, it’s an m.g. wheeler lamp (a version of the “sight light?)
i like the masculine feel of it. there might as well be something male in this house. sad it’s got to be lamps.
and don’t even ask me how to change that light bulb. i’ve had it for a few weeks now and can’t figure it out to save my life. sure, great looking design, but c’mon. changing a light bulb shouldn’t be that taxing on my brain cells.
