Fashion For Home

lamp - fashion for home, record player - urban outfitters

I'm currently making plans to finally move out of my parents' attic (marginally better than a basement but with a similar lack of cool factor!) so when Fashion for Home got in contact and asked me to review their website it seemed like perfect timing.

They sent me this gorgeous lamp - which currently is hanging out with my record player and records in a 'I have nowhere to put you yet, but just give me time' kind of a party! I really like Fashion for Home's website -  it has the modern style and homeliness of ikea, but it's that bit more selective and grown up. And I think that considering I plan on buying furniture I will look after and love for years to come, the prices are ver reasonable. There is literally so much on the website I want - as soon as I have actual space I'm totally going to go nuts!

Note to self though: you are no good at flatpacks - remember this! I managed to cause my self quite a lot of pain building the lamp!

I really like lamps. This one is lovely. Also loving the record player. Mine is in the basement as I don't have anywhere to put it in my bedroom which has boxes and all srts of crap everywhere. My Mum tried to throw it away the other day and I went mental! It's a really old one so it takes up so much space

Congrats on getting a new place! My bf and I are currently looking to move out of our tiny apt into something larger, so I will hopefully be decorating soon too! Love both the lamp and the record player. :)

Can't wait to hear more about moving out!
Seems like such a cool lamp. I love the style. My room is due a re-vamp, so I will definitely be checking out the site.

The lamp is gorgeous, and congratulations on the imminent new home. My parents just sold their house, kinda hoping there will be room in whichever one they move to next, as it'll be about 8 weeks time...

I'm an anomaly in that I LOVE building flat packs! I know, freak, but it reminds me of LEGO or something...

Anyway I love your lamp so it was worth your efforts!
