Tipsy, that is the best sofa I have ever seen. Done. Over and out. I've seen the one in Tiki Modern, but I always like seeing alternate designs (no doubt there are dozens, if not more) from ones in Sven's Bible.

Meatballs make anything better, no?

Sweet couch Tipsy!!!!! Defiantly a rare find. These were some of the last items Witco made before closing the doors. So I'm pretty sure there is not a lot of them out there.

Well ideally it looked like this.....



But in reality most Witco lamp shades were pretty ugly late 1960s or 1970s style
like an avocado green burlap shade, your better off finding a cool
1950s shade to replace whatever was originally on it.

Thanks Atomic Tiki Punk. I should probably have mentioned that the lamp is almost 4 feet tall. It's a bit larger than a table lamp, but not quite a floor lamp. I was also thinking about the right shape on the lamp shade also. I was hoping that Sven would magically appear with the catalog picture.

I couldn't find it in Sven's book, but almost all the lamps that are similar (sort of similar anyway) have a simple white long canister like lamp shade.

CORRECTION, look what I just found online!

I have never seen a Witco lamp with those shades, they have always been a single color plain cylindrical type shade
does anyone here, have one?
