Transformers: Old Lamp, New Life

An old lamp shines like new with a little work.

This wonderful lamp with faux bamboo dates back to the 60s and Designer Brenda Kelly Kramer ( found it at one of her favorite haunts: the Benefit Shop in Bedford Hills. “You wouldn’t want a fussy or ornate shade to take away the beauty of the lamp; cream is too bland, so I chose black to set off the base,” Kelly Kramer says.

The shell finial adds the perfect finishing touch—I love the swirl of the brown and white shell.
