Decanterlights

Remember Lee Broom’s Crystal bulb? Well, take that idea a step further and you’ve got his Decanterlights in all their fine hand-cut, lead crystal glory. Originally devised from vintage decanters, these replicas will make a lovely sort of statement above a bar or dining table. Pick between the Bell, Square and Tulip shapes, or mix several for a bigger statement.

Balise Pendant

Atelier de Troupe is hitting the right sort of note with their Balise collection. Just take a look at the pendant: a little retro Jean Royère inspiration moved this fixture from ‘quiet modern’ to ‘quiet-yet-playful-modern’, and that’s the secret winning combination when it comes to sophisticated interiors. Four 6″ ball glass shades hang side by side to make a 36″ width, 40″ drop height pendant, which fills a space above a dining table or kitchen island perfectly.

Light Line

A new design from the Lindsey Adelman Studio that’s available immediately? What!? Usually any design takes weeks to ship, but not this little Light Line designed by Mary Wallis. It utilizes a cold cathode tube to form a somewhat traditional table lamp shape and has a brushed brass base and dimmer switch. If you’re looking for a special lamp to add some edginess to your decor, this just might be it.

Bougies Russes Hurricane Lamp

Beatiful, aren’t they? Inspired by Russian Matryoshka dolls, these Bougies Russes Hurricane Lamps can be placed inside each other or lined up in a row. The lower portion of the glass is tinted to partially obscure the candle, thus giving off an “ethereal luminosity” fit for any occasion, inside or out. Designed by Stephan Lanez and manufactured by Paris based brand Marcel By.

Big Tournebrille Lamp

The Serge Mouille Wall Sconce is well beyond most of our budgets, and that’s why seeing the price tag of the Tournebrille Lamp by Tse & Tse is a nice surprise. It’s a little less grande than the Mouille Sconce, yet that’s not a bad thing. Flying under the design radar occasionally might just make your home more interesting, and you’ll certainly have more money in the bank. A rotating shade and swing arm make the black matte Tournebrille an excellent, affordable choice for your preferred reading spot.

Mr. N LED Table Lamp

That’s right, it’s a lamp. The Mr. N LED Table Lamp will most likely get a few double takes thanks to its outside illuminated surface. Shaped like a lowercase ‘n’, the lamp uses advanced light panel technology to emit a soft, warm glow that’s easy to control and adjust with a one-finger touch. Mr N’s dimensions are small- 7.5″ H x 4.30″ W x 3.2″ D- so it could easily fit on a smaller desk, bookshelf, or table.

Pixo LED Table Lamp

Remember this little guy? The Pixo Lamp incorporates a USB port in its base, which means more convenience when charging our mobile devices. However many times you’ve reached behind your sofa/bed/table/desk to pick up a charging cable, you know it’s been too many.

There are other impressive things about this lamp (360 degree rotating head, three-axis articulating stem, uses just five watts thanks to low-energy LEDs, etc.) but all we’re going to appreciate right now is the USB port (Hat tip to designers Pablo and Fernando Pardo for this small yet significant detail). Now on sale from DWR, $169.15 – $174.25, until October 23, 2014.

Boya Lamp

This little lamp takes its inspiration from the sea- think lighthouse beacons and buoys. At 8.5″ high and 7.5″ in diameter, it’s small enough to fit on a desk or large side table without taking up a lot of visual space, especially as there’s no traditional cloth lampshade. The base is made of reclaimed American red and white oak beams and the shade is thick, tinted grey glass.

Kelvin LED Table Lamp

LED lamps are obviously energy efficient, and this one has a pretty large spread of light considering its size. With a 359 degree swiveling head and a double pantograph arm, you can easily position it just the way you want. It’s a smart choice for a simple/modern task lamp, and you won’t have to sacrifice warm, soft light for energy efficiency.

Kuu Lamp

So, here’s something sort of exciting: there’s a new online store that aims to provide high-end modern design at affordable prices. How’s that going to happen? Original design, true craftsmanship, and working directly with factories around the world, apparently. Will it work? Let’s hope so. Hem just opened for preorders, and I’ve got my eye on this Kuu Lamp ($149-$225). There’s no doubt you’ll be seeing more of the collection within the next several weeks, so prepare your house for some new additions (and your bank account for a few subtractions).

Brick Lamp

Maybe you’re a no-nonsense sort of person, and if so, maybe you’d like the Brick Lamp by Philippe Malouin. It’s a task light, that’s for sure, but it’s reduced down to the bare essentials. The aluminum light rod (with LEDs) may be moved by shifting/poking it through the holes of the concrete “brick” base. Would this fit within the industrial aesthetic arena? Yes, indeed. The Brick Lamp will provide a visual weight (and physical heft) to your work area.

Starry Light by Anagraphic

If you’re fond of constellations, then you’ll like this Starry Light by Anagraphic. The hemispheric shade lends itself to a pattern of the Northern Hemisphere’s two equinoxes and solstices and a LED light fixture projects most of its light downwards, with just enough residual light to bring out the stars on your walls. Also, as the lamp is manufactured by hand, you may customize the light to a specific date, time and geographical location.

Holmes Sconce

It doesn’t take much deductive reasoning to select this Holmes Sconce from Schoolhouse Electric as one of the better options in the marketplace. It might be inspired by the classic candle sconce in the days before electricity, but the minimalist lines in its steel backplate marks it firmly in the present. Make it your own by choosing a specialty bulb, and know that the smaller size would fit almost anywhere you need an extra source of light.
