    Hi, isn't it Arco floor lamp? Is that original? I like the table too. Actually, I am looking for replica. Anyone has bought replica before? I saw a couple of them online but all of them are round tube. Does anyone know where can I get the square tube replica? Thank you in advance.

    I have had many clients who have also love to place arco lamp in their house. It goes in any room you name it. 6 out of 10 purchased it from the replica manufacturer manhattan home design. Once I suggested my client to move the lamp from living room to dining room, guess what? They struggled a lot to move the lamp base! Quite heavy base! That's actually the best feature of a good quality arco lamp.

    Hi Swangter,
    The openings in the shelving are covered with white perspex panels, as this is a acting a divider between the bedroom and the rest of the studio they give some privacy but still transmit some light. You could also use translucent "Lucite" panels. They are just drilled and screwed on to the unit. You can buy these online and have them cut to size, or you may be able to find them locally. They also come in a variety of colors.

    Hope this helps,

    There are 3 very large original paintings in this room (by the owner) as well as several plants, and a few selected photographs, although not family members, just not in this particular view. Also, not everyone likes to see a clutter of books in a small, one room space. They are stored out of site, as are cd's DVD's etc. We're all different and have different ideas of what a personal space should be.....and that's a good thing.

    First, i see a plant on the left, and 2 small pictures on a shelf on the right. I see art of all kinds, mostly handcrafted pottery, but also compositions of twigs in beautiful vases/ containers. I see 2 martini/ champagne glasses in that bookcase. Are they from a trip to paris or a remembrance of a special event? And I see a tv and electronic equipment in a casual area where the owner clearly could enjoy kicking back. This room is full of life.

    Hi, I have the Expedits (2) here mounted on castors so they can be moved around. They have been like this for several years and so far they have been totally stable. Because they can move it appears they are less likely to topple. However I don't have any small children or animals to worry about in this space. Fixing them to a wall is an extra precaution, but Ikea now sell castors specifically for the Expedit so they can't be expecting everyone to permanently fix them down.
  • alinka118
    Perfect, thanks for clarifying. I don't have animals or children, either, but I was just wondering how stable they are if Ikea is recommending them to be affixed :) I was planning on using this to create two separate spaces in my upstairs loft, it's a great way to get the light through, but still have some sort of "wall". This makes me feel much better, thanks for your reply!

When you have an open-concept dining room, placing ready to assemble bookcases help define the space and add a focal point. The Arco floor lamp is a great alternative to chandeliers when there are no ceiling-mount outlets available.

Lily Gahagan added this to Design Details: Inspired by Expedit BookshelvesFeb 8, 2011

The open shelving works great as a room divider, and provides easy access from both sides. For a little more separation, follow this designer's lead by covering some of the openings.
