I find a lot of great things on Pinterest these days*, but you just can’t ignore the pleasure of kicking back with a glossy design magazine** and taking in all the goodies. For instance, I found Tony Duquette’s Magic Forest Lamp by Remains Lighting whilst browsing the new issue of Elle Decor and thank goodness for that, because what if I didn’t know that such kooky glam pieces still existed?

If it looks a little bit retro, that’s because it is. Duquette designed these torchiere-trees for MGM’s 1952 musical, Lovely to Look At. As soon as I saw it, I instinctively knew something so dramatic had to have some tie to Hollywood. Fair warning that this is not very affordable (it’s $5,325 — sigh), but how striking would this be in a dining room or even a bedroom? The soft glow of the bulbs, combined with the fanciful leaves and twinkling crystal balls is indeed lovely to look at.

*Please follow me on Pinterest. Pretty please?

**Speaking of magazines, have you subscribed to HGTV Magazine yet?
