As an expectant mother, I have started purchasing a few items for the baby's room. I've also recently started working at home, and while I had the computer, desk, and office supplies, I did not have a lamp.
I'd been eyeing Carter's Laguna Lamp online at BabiesRUs and decided this was as good of a time as any to purchase the lamp and use it in my office until we need to move it to the baby's room. It is kind of expensive for a small lamp at $44.99, but it's completely cute and puts out enough light that I don't have to turn on any lights in my office area. I needed enough light to shine over my keyboard and notebooks without needing to turn on every light in the place, so this works well.
The Laguna collection of baby items is covered in different colored turtles, frogs, and ducks. It is a great set of items for gender-neutral bedrooms and nature-inspired bedrooms. The lamp has a green shade with some stiching details. The base has three turtles on each other's back. The turtle at the bottom is the largest and it is blue with a similar stitching pattern as the shade. The turtle in the middle is orange, and the turtle at the top is brown.
I received the lamp very quickly after placing my order and all of the pieces were in good working order. The one element that seems a little bit off is the way the shade fits on top of the base. It seems to hang lower on one side or lean slightly. I may have just attached it incorrectly by not getting everything aligned. Either way, it's still super cute and the slight lean isn't a big problem. I may try to reattach the shade to see if it was manual error.
I would definitely recommend buying the Laguna turtle lamp for a baby's or kid's room. Heck, I even enjoy having it in an adult's office. It is easy to put together, cute, and doesn't fit the stereotypical blues and pinks associated with baby rooms.
While I really like the turtle lamp and all of the Laguna designs, I don't plan to buy additional items from the Carter's Laguna set. I found a set of bedding items at Target that I like slightly better and that will go really well with the turtle lamp.
