Giveaway: Oscar Boudoir Lamp

Happy Friday! This has been an extremely busy week, and I can't wait to tell you about a little side project I've started...
For now though, let's chat about this weekend's giveaway from CSN Lighting. If you haven't been to the mecca of lighting stores, you're missing out because this place has a plethora of options from traditional, to modern, to eclectic and everything in between. The first time I visited the site, I got lost in all of the options and many at deeply discounted prices. From type of lamp, to type of function (i.e. ceiling lights, table lamps, track lighting) chances are you're going to find something you love (and can afford!) here.

When CSN Lighting contacted me, they asked me to choose a product that I thought my readers would like. Well, as any astute blog writer knows, I can only choose what I like and hope that you all agree with me. Eeek! (It's a tricky business, but someone's got to do it, wink, wink.)
The winner of this weekend's giveaway will be taking home the Oscar Boudoir Lamp!
This lamp, in it's various forms, has been making it's rounds in blog design land, and for good reason.
You can choose between the base color of carrot, grass, or olive and between the "white linen" shade or the "natural linen." Perhaps you'll even want to try your hand at little lampshade DIY love?
The list price for this lamp is $87, but CSN sells it for $66.70 (nice deal!)
Dimensions are 18"H x9"W and it's listed as one of CSN's "Eco Friendly" products.
For one of you lucky readers, it's free!
How to enter? 3 entries total.
1) Leave me a comment telling me where you'd put this lamp if you won (home/office/bathroom etc).
2) If you're a follower/member/whatever of Down and Out Chic, you're extra special and you get to enter a second comment. (Make sure to enter a separate comment or it doesn't count!)
3) Post a link to your blog, Twitter, or Facebook and enter a third comment telling me so!
**Disclaimer: This giveway is only open to Canadian and U.S. residents...I do, however, adore my international readers and I don't want you to forget that (you know who you are).
I hope you have a great weekend! Be sure to check back as I'll be doing some weekend posts.
Have I told you how much you all make me smile?!
~Christina
...hold the phone, who changed the widget from "members" back to "followers"? Do I need to start a friggin petition? Widget people, if you hear me CHANGE IT BACK!!!
**The giveaway is now closed for entries. Winner was chosen 8/11/09. Thank you!

Eve M Metalsmith said...

These lamps are PRECIOUS! I normally HATE lamps, because I can never find any that don't make me feel like my grandmother (love her dearly), but these great styles would really accent my home!

I'd use this in my BOUDOIR, on my end table to aid in my in-bed reading ;o)

MichCherie said...

You always have the funnest giveaways!!
If I were to be the lucky recipient of one of these stylish lamps, I would put it in the dark corner area of my entry-way where I have a little telephone table (soon to be replaced by a mini bookshelf). My walls are blue so I would for sure pick the carrot colour for contrast and pop. The DIY has my mind spinning with ideas too :)

Christina said...

Seriously you have the best giveaways. I've been in love with the Oscar lamp for ages now. Our new place has scarce overhead lighting, so it would be perfect in my family room...not to mention that orange base would be the perfect way to add some orange to my family room. :)

umama said...

I love this lil green lamp. It would definitely go in my room. Alfie and I keep saying we will go lamp shopping and never make it. So we have this wall lamp that is touch-based. Only problem is that it is sooo fickle. Sometimes it only needs a light tap, and other times you have to smack the thing to work! SO I would love this lil lamp.

And yeap, I'm a member / follower!

Shooting Stars Mag said...

I'm not sure where I'd put this because if I won, I might give it to my brother and sister in law who just got married and will be moving soon and need all the furniture/house-y type items they can get. But I think it would be a great lamp to have on the bedside table or in the living room.

I'd put this lamp in our study.

vintage simple said...

Oh my. What a great giveaway...! Okay, well, I'd put it on a dresser I got not too long ago, in a room that at the moment is suffering from somewhat of an identity crisis...It'll probbaly be an office. Anyway. That lamp would be quite perfect.

It is about time the rich started to seduce you with their wares. I read your blog, but follow? I think...or absence of thinking, a Gomes man does not follow anything? Wait what about folly? Darn. Keep the lamp! May the fashionably rich continue to raise the skirt!

Marygrace said...

In my new living romm - perfect!

Erica S. said...

I would put this lamp on my nightstand in my airy, all-white bedroom. It has the perfect pop of color and feminine curves to make just the right statement.

Rebecca said...

Love Love Love these lamps! I'm moving to a new home in the near future and it's much bigger then my one bedroom apartment I have now, so I'm in need of new goodies to fill up all the extra space. If I win one of these lamps I would put it in my living room. The base colors are a perfect match with my decor!

Love the lamp - we are doing our babies room in white and citrus colors - so I would have to toss a coin to decide on green or orange...

Hi, Lane said...

Ooo, I love it! It would be set up quite nicely on my nightstand & my husband will get my old junky one (he doesn't really need a lamp anyway, right?).

annalene said...

Love the color selections and shape of this lamp, a nice retro shape that would also fit into a modern aesthetic. i would put this in my bedroom which is probably the most eclectically styled room in the house, my lamps in here look horrible and these ones look so much nicer than what I'm working with now!

annalene said...

I'm following down and out chic, yay! Thank you so much for the giveaway, crossing my fingers!

Erica said...

I am a new reader to the blog . . . but I love it! I think this lamp was meant for me . . . my boyfriend just moved from the east coast to California to be near me and just found his first west coast apartment this weekend. That lamp would make a lovely addition to his new living room, which only has a brown leather couch in it, so far.

Jessie said...

I would put this lamp in the new house that we plan to buy because our old one is too small so we're selling it. As far as which room.. probably the living room.
P.S. Koah is wearing one of his new x-tina shirts today and he looks really really adorable. Thanks again!

Bolton Cellars said...

I would put it in my bedroom and then buy a second one to match!
