Hi there, I am so sorry but I do not know where the owner purchased those lamps. She has had them for years.

The two cream chairs are Ikea 'KIVIK':


The navy sofa is an old one.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Holly Marder added this to My Houzz: Country-Chic Dutch Family Home
The living room furniture is arranged for cozy television viewing around a potbelly stove. An authentic longhorn cow skull from Fort Worth, Texas, hangs above the stove. The item was brought back from one of many trips the Dutch family takes to the United States.
10. Angle into a corner. When you have more than one focal point (windows, fireplace) competing for attention, it may be better to let the TV take a back seat. A wedge-shaped cabinet tucked into the corner may not be the most innovative solution, but it gets the job done — and if the rest of the space is as pulled together as the one shown here, no one will notice the TV until it's time to watch.

The chairs? But what about the fact that the cushions seem to be falling off? Hmmm.
