Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine. – Jeffrey Glassberg
Thinking about a fresh approach to say your guest room or Florida Room? Consider the butterfly! If your dull & dreary room is the caterpillarâ€¦.. imagine it evolving into a beautiful, enchanting butterfly! A mirage of colors and activity that spice up your space and energize your soul & spirit. Start with our Butterfly Hooked Area Rug in soft buttery cream with highlights of blues, orange, yellows & greens with black accents.
Paint your walls a pretty pale yellow to open up the space & compliment the rug. We recommend Sherwin Williams Butter Up #SW6681 in a satin eggshell finish. For more choices visit Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer Site.
Drop in our Black Laquer Glass Top End Table & top it off with our hand painted Butterfly Table Lamp; an aged tole canister finished with a painted paper shade. The warm light will add a calming serenity your pretty new room.

Check out our â€śGreen Lightsâ€ť and our Energy Star selections on our website! Eco-friendly products have taken on a stylish twist! Bamboo, cork, hemp, and recycled wood, paper and glass are transformed into exciting lighting products! Change your light fixture to an Energy-Star certified product or just change your bulbs to color-corrected fluorescent bulbs! You can realize average rates of return on your initial investment of 30% or more, reduce your lighting electricity bill by more than half, and help save the environment.
Lighting accounts for 20 to 25% of the electricity used annually in the United States. If energy-efficient lighting was used everywhere, the electricity required for lighting would be cut by 50% and aggregate national electricity demand would be reduced by 10%. Energy savings would exceed $12 billion a year while decreasing air pollution by 5%. This would be equivalent to taking 15 million cars off the road, resulting in less smog, acid rain and a slowing of global climate change.â€ť *
Take care when selecting a fluorescent bulb to make sure you get the best color lighting for your needs. Color temperature is a measure of the output â€ścolorâ€ť of the bulb. The higher the number in kelvins (K), the â€ścoolerâ€ť (bluer) the color light it produces. We recommend 3000K for a nice warm pinkish light and 5000K for a clear daylight (called full spectrum) effect. Some variations and inconsistencies exist among manufacturers. For example, Sylvania’s Daylight CFLs have a color temperature of 3500 K, while most other lamps with a “daylight” label have color temperatures of at least 5000K.
Compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) come with a screw-in base that fits most table and floor lamps.
