Many local lamp stores carry lots more than lighting. They can be great spots for finding accent tables, accessories, mirrors and beyond. Lamp Emporium is one.
I was drawn into their shop in Stony Point Fashion Park by an outdoor sign announcing selected lamps for 50 percent off, and I was happy to discover this chest and its discounted price.
Made by Bassett Mirror Company, the “Omni” chest (pictured) has a rich and chocolatey finish. Its 40 x 19 x 31-inch size gives it versatility. I think it would look smart as a wide bedside table, in a hall or an office. Offered now at 30 percent off, it is $895.
With its four drawers, shiny, circular drawer pulls and Mid-Century-styled legs, it’s a neat and attractive piece. And an unexpected find among table lamps and chandeliers.
Lamp Emporium has two locations: 3520 Pump Road and 9200 Stony Point Parkway. Hours at the Short Pump store are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, 1 p.m.-5 p.m. At the mall, store hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m., and Sunday, 12 p.m.-6 p.m.
