Lighting

Buka Candlestick

The Buka Candlestick employs two pins to keep a candle suspended above its metal dish. Visually light and effortless, the look is elegant and a little mysterious; it may be just the thing to add some ambience during the winter evenings ahead.

YUH Lamps

Yuh is for ‘you,’ at least, phonetically speaking. You may like its personal size and its built-in LED technology, but take note of the slim opening in the top that gives off a soft, upward illumination. There’s a dimmer switch, and if you’re the type to doze off with the lights on, you’ll like the fact that it has a timer function too.

Euclid Lamp

This lamp is pretty neat; you can change its look by switching around its seven shapes. Display different combinations of the acrylic plates for different moods- add or subtract colors, make it tall or short, just have fun.

Little Sun Diamond

You remember the pocket-sized Little Sun Solar Light? The latest iteration features a crystalline, faceted lens and packs in two more hours of light: five hours of sunlight charging gives five hours of power.

5 Sconces under $150

Not everyone can afford super expensive lighting, especially when that lighting might be going in, say, a kid’s bedroom or guest room. They should just be happy they’ve got a light to read by, right? So, here’s a break for you: five sconces under $150. Yep, you read that right, no zeros are missing. Now, I can’t vouch for the quality, so keep that in mind… though, usually you get what you pay for, in my experience.

Arch Table Lamp

How pretty is this Arch Table Lamp? A tripartite, powder-coated steel base is paired with circular panels of glass to create an elegant form that displays a subtle light. Touches of brass joinery and a dimmer switch make the lamp suitable for more polished, elevated interiors.

Cocentric Flush Dome

Prepare yourself, for this dome lighting fixture isn’t what most of us would call affordable. However, it is handcrafted on a lathe (take note of the perfect concentric grooves) and is available in several different American hardwoods. Plus, it can either be positioned on the wall or the ceiling, so you’re not locked in to just one location.

Terracotta Lantern

This lantern is strange, and that’s probably why we like it. The handmade terracotta lantern has a handle on its backside to make it easier to move around- perhaps to and fro your outdoor dining area and inside? It certainly won’t be mistaken for anything found at your local hardware store, as it has an odd-yet-friendly sculptural presence.

String Lights by onefortythree

Don’t ask yourself ‘why do I need these string lights?’ Instead, ask yourself ‘why don’t I need these string lights?’ After all, you work very hard, don’t you? And, it does get quite dark at night, so what better way to illuminate a special spot indoors than with a set of string lights with natural brass sockets and black cloth twisted cord? Or a set of string lights with pink, yellow, orange, or many other lovely color sockets? The colors are a new addition (thank you onefortythree!). Wonderful evenings are sure to happen with any of these beauties above your head.

RestartMilano Lamps

I hesitate to use the word ‘dainty’ to describe these lamps from RestartMilano, mostly because it brings to mind doilies and frail flowers. With their sleek swivel arms and warm brass finish, these lamps are just the opposite, yet the thin silhouette allows for a light touch in any interior, allowing other elements to take center stage. And, as an update, the Short Wall Lamp is now on sale.

Balad Lamp from Fermob

Need some flexible outdoor lighting? The Balad Lamp from Fermob is just the right size to tote around. And, compared to some other portable, outdoor lights (like the Uma), it’s absolutely affordable. The aluminum handle has a button at its base that dims the light and turns the lamp on and off. As a bonus, the accompanying Small and Large Stand transform the hand-held Balad into a floor lamp for outdoor dining or seating areas.

Concentric Wall Light

You can’t afford a commissioned Turrell light installation in your living room, but maybe you can afford a Concentric Wall Light from Marset. It’s still expensive, sure, but if you’re a big fan of glowing color, you’re going to like the options you get from the concentric design, especially in the dark.

Bo Light

Yes, you just saw the Hiline Lighting, but this new Bo Light from Massess is something else. Shaped like an archery bow, a slim strip of solid oak is tensioned by wire, which magically doubles as the light switch. Simply touch the wire to activate the imbedded LEDs for a diffused light on the wall or tabletop. Watch the video below to see it in action.

Moon Lamp

Do you need a moon lamp? Hmm, maybe you could justify the purchase if you plan to study the Moon’s craters, elevation and ridges for scientific research… or artistic inspiration? The Moon Lamp is a 1:20 million replica, done in an expertly crafted mold*, that has an LED ring that revolves around the globe to recreate lunar phases as seen from our planet. Pretty cool, right?

Hiline Lighting

You can make your own deconstructed, utilitarian lighting, but will your attempt look as good as these Hiline pieces? And, while we’re considering your skills, let’s reflect on the price of the Hiline Spotlight, Sconce, and Pendant, and think about if it’s worth the time and effort to make your own, or if it’s best to just support someone else that’s doing it right. I vote on the latter.
