Is it Arteluce or Arredoluce?

I purchased a great floor lamp at a local auction and I am pretty sure it's an authentic triennale lamp. I have seen it referred to as being made by Arteluce AND Arredoluce. Are these two companies one in the same or is there a difference?

Thanks for any info!

99% sure this chair is new with a nod to Pierre Paulin but..

I cannot find it anywhere online. If it is new I have checked all the modern outdoor furniture sites and cannot seem to locate it. Does anyone recognize it? Is it a Target special? Anyway I found two at the local thrift store and would LOVE to get two more. Thoughts? http://174.143.10.209/images/tes...

American Homeshield is HORRIBLE. They allege they cover everything until you actually try to make a claim. The MCM I bought years ago and have since sold had a geothermal AC system. It crapped out a few months after I purchased the house. They said they wouldn't replace it because of the type of sys...

Maybe it is the slight blur of the photo, but I do not see any depth or defined stone in the pictured flooring. The pattern also looks too perfect...the terrazzo I have seen while very uniform in design is not as perfectly patterned as the pictured floor. Plus there is no metal seam separating the l...

Hmmm... I don't think that is terrazzo. It looks too dull... It looks more like a man made flooring. Armstrong makes commercial continuous flooring that looks very similar.

Ok..Let me start by saying I have too much free time on my hands BUT I have been watching some re-runs of Bewitched and I dream of Jeanne on this website hulu.com. Since it has been a while since these shows have been rerun on regular television, I had forgotten how "hip" they were. Well.....
