Love the Kartell Fly lamp, but several reviews state it is easily scratched. Have homeowners found this true?

Would you know what wattage bulb they are using on this lamp. We have one in black but the bulb wattage that came with the lamp is rather low. Just curious

That nice looking lamp, too bad that it not only scratches so easily, it also becomes dusty quite quickly! Probably the electrostatic effect makes the dust just fall in love with that lamp!

See the pics... the dust is visible even better when the lamp is lit!

I really love the look. Please let me know the color of the walls. It's tricky to work with whites.

The home owners do not have the name and brand of the paint on hand. Sorry I can't be of more help. Decorators White by Benjamin Moore is one of my favorite whites to work with because of its versatility and ease. It goes with everything!

Isn't it wonderful? The home owner doesn't know the brand but says that it was purchased at Design Within Reach: www.dwr.com

The painting is an original collage piece by the home owner, Mary Emma Hawthorne. It's called "Water Well" and was inspired by a trip to Africa. You can contact the artist via her website: http://maryemmahawthorne.com/

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sarah Greenman added this to My Houzz: A Dallas Home Goes Modern and Artful
The Hawthornes spent the first five years of their marriage in a small apartment filled with hand-me-downs, saving their pennies for a time when they could create their own dream space. Sarah Greenman: Tell me about your decorating process.Mary Emma Hawthorne: After sacrificing for so long, it was such fun to pick out furniture and fixtures.Matt Hawthorne: We see furniture as art too. When we were making initial decisions about furniture, we took a blueprint and cut out furniture shapes to scale and moved them around on the paper until we had the right configuration. Everything was planned.SG: How would you describe your personal aesthetic?MH: That's tough. It's a lot of things. Urban. Modern. Organic. Eclectic. Minimal.MEH: I seek out authenticity. Some of the "art" in our home is just real artifacts from our travels. A drum from Indonesia or a box from Ghana. We like real things.Art: "Water Well," by Mary Emma Hawthorne, dining table: Bo Concept; chairs: Design Within Reach; bookcase: Expedit, Ikea
