Ultimate Wish List Item: Prouvé Potence Lamp

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Ultimate Wish List post. Item number 4 on my list is the iconic Potence Lamp by Jean Prouvé. The design is quite genius. It pivots 180 degrees, takes up no floor space and has a reach of 7 feet. It’s also really versatile as you can see from these rooms:

It’s industrial but also really elegant and could work in so many different spaces. I’m picturing it in a Parisian apartment with a lot of ornate architectural details….. but then again, that’s where I picture everything, isn’t it?
