It drives me bonkers when there are almost exact same products at different retailers with different prices and names; is the Bowling Pin Light from UO a Knock-off (um, literally)? Does anybody know?
pictured above: Bowling Pin Light, $38.00,Buy it here.
STRIKE! You’ll be bowled over by the Bowling Pin Light, a fun sculpted lamp that turns off when you knock it over (gently). You might just want to get 12! Imported. Wipe clean. 4.75″w, 15.5″h, 4.75″d
not pictured: Knock-off LIght by Josh Owen, $26.00, Buy it here.
The iconic bowling pin has a story to tell. In it’s standing state, it tells us that it is waiting to be knocked over. When the lamp is on its side, the light is off. When the pin stands up tall, it glows.

This looks like a pretty reasonable price for a lamp that does tricks.
“This light transforms easily from a table to a floor lamp and back again. Just unleash the aluminum base and reposition on to any height. This light will give any room a magical touch, seemingly ignoring the laws of gravity.”
Lampshade in polypropylene, polished cast aluminum base, and translucent lampholder, plug, switch and cable.

As you can see from the pictures above, one of these lamps can be used outdoors while the other is most certainly indoor only. They’re both very simple globe designs upgraded into fantastic lighting choices simply by adding color filters and metal accents.

The faceted surface of these lights are pretty eye catching. I’d say they look a tad more expensive than they are as well.
“Roland Simmons blends unique design with grounded practicality in the Trovato lighting collection. Designed to enhance any room, the Trovato features a DuraSilk™ shade, an opalescent material extruded from post-industrial polyethylene resin, making it an environmentally-friendly choice.”
Both 26″ height and 35″ height lamps have a 6″ square base
For all Trovato lights, 60-watt bulbs are recommended

This is one stupendous (albeit expensive) floor lamp.
“Naughty, as in pine, makes each lamp an individual work of art. Sundayland starts out with the highest quality of California grown knotty pine available, hand turning the base and stem, naturally bringing out the character and sheen of the wood. For the shade, pine is taken to a whole new level, near transparent, then backed with an invisible polyurethane. Light glows through the grain of the wood, knots and all, illuminating any environment.”
Dimensions: 5’9″ Height

This looks like a good choice for adding just the right amount of ambient light to a room.
‘Translated as “bowl” in Japanese, the Wan delicately holds its light in a beautifully curved shell. Encased in its walls are sand-like iron particles, allowing you to direct the angle of light by simply shifting the weight of the bowl. More lovely than its shape however is its glow, as its thick rim softens the contours of the light to a subtle, diffused hue.’
Designer: Naoto Fukasawa
Materials: Polycarbonate, Aluminum
Available in silver or white with a choice of flood or narrow light distribution.
13″ dia. x 8″H
Purchase Information:Price: $499.00

This collection of Honey Lamps is on sale (almost half off).
‘This is a system of light elements built around diffused light, designed on a modular transparent structure, of theoretically unlimited extension, like “Brancusi’s Endless” column. The texture of the triangular components, in a honey comb structure and micro-prismatic, directs the distribution of the light flow through the interior of the structure. The system is composed of three basic components, assembled together in a clip-on process (the elements are a triangle as diffuser, a square as frame and a crown as the cover) as well as the rod iron legs for the base. The assembly operations, which are extremely simple and require no additional tools, are left to the user. By using the components available in the system, it is possible within the required dimensions, to choose from several lamp alternatives.’

I’m really liking this faceted lamp, especially because it can function as table or floor lighting- take your pick.
“An angular plastic encased light, the Asteroid is a unique floor, or table light, designed with 24 facets — each with its own unique geometry. The lamp can be placed on several of the facets, to display as an individual, unique piece, as you like.”
Materials: Matte white plastic.
Approx 12″ x 11.5″ round

While these two floor lamps are quite similar in idea, they are entirely different in how the design is actually executed. For those on a budget, the Bauhaus (shown at top) will make do just fine, and the extra bells and whistles that the Twiggy (at bottom) sports is not quite worth the extra $1800. But, those of you that appreciate the finer things, the Twiggy is impressive in quality and detail- take a look at its credentials and see which one might fit you best.
Bauhaus Arc Floor Lamp:
“Arc de triomphe in top to bottom all metal, all white. Pedestal iron base rises off-center, then swoops to high light over seating, bed, dining. Shade is a major surprise in smooth aluminum; exposed butterfly nut (white [or olivine] of course) pivots shade to direct the beam. On/off foot switch.”
59″Wx15.25″Dx80″H, $199.00, Buy it here.
Twiggy Floor Lamp:
“The Twiggy is characterized by a thin, elegant and sophisticated design. Flexibility is the word for Twiggy; flexibility of the material which defines the ample and essential curve of the arm that carries the light source far from the base, in the possibility of adjusting the height of the shade thanks to a system of counterweights, and in the possibility of adjusting the length of the arm with a set of extensions (sold separately).”
Twiggy is available in four color choices: red, black, white or yellow. Made from a compound material with a fiberglass base. Bottom diffuser shields direct view of lamps.
Dimensions 67″L X 77″ – 85″H; 18″D shade, $2,022.00, Buy it here.

Here’s a cool little table (or floor) lamp. I like how the silver laminate and the exposed edges play with the traditional idea of a lamp silhouette.
“The crisp, clean lines of the Tonka lamp bring an elegant simplicity to your contemporary decor. Available as a table or floor lamp, it is an ideal choice for your bedside or your favorite corner.”
small: 4.75″W x 7″L x 19.75″H
