We enjoyed reading everybody’s guesses; the most popular being a cobbler’s tool and fireplace tool. Tina was the first to get it correct: a floor lamp. Many HGTV Facebook fans also got it correct, including fan Jes Dixon who thought it resembled a “new age leg lamp”. I definitely see the resemblance.

Even though this 1950s 1stdibs floor lamp has a futuristic look, its combination of  wood and copper gives it a true French antique finish. The wood stand resembles a tree trunk, and the two lights in the almost 5-foot tall lamp reflect off the copper plates to create a soft light.


We’ll have a brand new item next week, so check back to give us your best guess!
