Lamp/Lamp by Hironao Tsuboi

We posted this about a year ago and I had forgotten all about it, which maybe means you did too.

“It’s hard to think of a light source as mundane as the naked bulb…. but, in a surprising twist, the Lamp/Lamp gives it a new and delightfully absurd personality by simply adding an extra socket.”

3.75″W x 3″L x 2.25″H

Update: A representative from DARK says “this is initially designed by Davy Grosemans. DARK took this lamp in collection in 2003 (Davy designed it in 2002). 4 years before Hironao ‘designed’ this.” Hmm.

Frosted Hanging Light by Gus Modern

We posted this a couple of years ago, but each time I run across it I think of it as such a perfect size (36″ long!) for over a bigger dining table.

Designed with the sleek angles and clean lines that mark the signature style of its cutting-edge designer, this rectangular lighting fixture houses two brilliant bulbs for high-quality indoor lighting. Fashioned from a clear acrylic shade, this Gus Modern lighting is suspended from two sturdy cables affixed to an enduring, stainless steel ceiling plate that mounts easily to your electrical source. 8 feet of electrical cord is included with the Frosted Hanging Light for convenient wiring.”

Twitchen Silk Lampshade

This lampshade sure shows some green greenery. The feel of taking a walk through the woods would never be too far away if you added this lampshade to one of your rooms.

‘The shade is 20″ in diameter, top and bottom, and 9″ tall. These are lamp shades only, for table lamps or hanging fixture lamps. There is a universal metal ring that fits between the fixture and the lightbulb… You can flip your old lamp into a super pretty natural glow. Each lamp also comes with a bottom light diffuser. It’s a “bottom” to the shade that gives it a sealed, light box look. The shade works without the diffuser as well, but a diffuser is included with each one. 60 watt max.’

Meridian Pendant Light

A superb choice for your lighting needs, this pendant has presence with its orderly walnut veneer rings.

“The Meridian light is a simple expression of form and movement, like the paths of electrons around a nucleus, planets around the sun, or like the symmetry that the tropics, meridians and poles impose on the unruly shapes of the continents and countries of the globe.”
