Hallway With Helmer Drawer Unit & Arc Floor Lamp

March 29, 2011
tags: ,

I made a few changes in the hallway area between our dining and living rooms. The first step was to replace the side table with HELMER Drawer Unit by IKEA. The HELMER drawers are great for keeping little memo pads, pens and stationary, important phone numbers, and business cards organized in the small drawers. Then, the second stage was to switch the floor lamp from the spotlight lamp from Bed Bath and Beyond to the arc floor lamp I purchased at ACE Hardware Indonesia. This arc lamp was about IDR 590,000 (US$63). I moved the spotlight lamp to a different room. The white shade goes well with the white color used in the clock, frame and tables as well. What do you think?

    So did you end up buying the arc lamp you mentioned in a previous post? I think the result is great! We are also looking for a floor lamp for our living room, and if we were not moving so often, I would have bought a similar lamp already!

      I did! Thanks for remembering! I will eventually get to it. I haven’t taken good pictures of it yet. I hear you. I am worried about shipping the new arc lamp as it is heaaaaaavvvvvvy!!!

    I like the new changes, especially the little drawer unit which must ne ideal for storing bits and pieces – it has caught my eye before when I’ve been at Ikea.

    You have a really gorgeous hallway!! Love the green sofa which is the first thing to pop out when I see your pics.

      Thanks!! I am so happy to hear that as this sofa was provided by the housing office and I wanted to make it look good and stand out with gray!

    Kaho I like the improvements! BTW you found a smaller sized lamp? The one I have is bigger so it was about 1.2M. I didn’t realize they have a smaller one! Awesome.

      Thanks! The one I picked was a smaller one priced 1.2 M as well, so I must have the same one as you do. The bigger one was HUGE! I tried to pick up the stone base and I could not even lift it a bit. I am very strong! I even move furniture around in my house without help (I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or not as it could hurt my back…) The white shade one is the lamp I found at ACE in Jakarta last year in September or October.

    Oh and I love the Ikea drawers!! Where did you get it? In Jakarta?

      I bought it back in the States before we moved to Jakarta. I had it in a guest room and didn’t use it for a while.

    I like how you put the pillows on the armrests. Looks kind of space-agey!

      Thanks! I looked at the photos again after you comment. You’re so right!
