Floor Lighting

on/off light

Now this is a closeout special, so if you like what you see, you better get a move on it and buy it before everybody else snaps it up. Seems like a good deal to me…the only drawback is it’s just available in light pink or light blue polycarbonate. Sorry if you don’t like those two colors.

“ON/OFF is not operated by the usual switch on the electric wire, but by a movement of the hand which moves it into its two positions of balance. It can be placed on a table, bedside-table or floor.
If dropped or knocked it does not break, because it is made of soft thermoplastic.”

6″W X 5″H

k-series floor/table lamps

Designed by Shiro Kuramata, these k-series lamps are definitely a unique accent to any room. They look like little ghosts to me, which makes me like them that much more, but to those of you less creatively inclined, maybe they’ll just be cool cloth-like lamps.

“The lighting fixtures that he developed in 1972 give an impression of a white cloth placed on the ground. It represented a revolution in lighting, with each of the light shades differing slightly in shape from the others. The light appeared as a piece of cloth rising of its own accord, seeming to defy gravity, while successfully replacting the image of a cloth with light itself. Every piece is individually formed. The process involves four craftsmen, who are specially trained to shape this unique design.”

Panto Beam by Verner Panton

I’m actually pretty excited to see a lamp I like that’s under $100.00- it doesn’t happen that often. Maybe you’ll be excited too? I sure hope so. The Panto Beam has a lacquered steel body and rests on coasters so you can move it around super easy.

Marcel Wanders set up shades

I imagine this would be stunning in a room with some nice chairs and a rug and a coffee table and not much else. Understated yet entirely imaginative.

“There’s a giant matchstick leaning against your wall!” is what you’ll hear everytime somebody new comes to visit. Impress and amaze with this funny lamp made of a wooden stand and a red or white plastic tip (both come with the base).

These are super cool. Trust me. Also, each lightstick is activated by a foot switch so you can do the “look! no hands!” trick.

“It’s a lamp, it’s an end table, it’s an ottoman, it’s a stool–”
