Column Candle

Drippy wax might be annoying to some, but this candle creates an interesting piece as it melts.

Unlike a typical candle, this column candle can simply be placed as an interior decor with its detailed and antique look. Even after usage, the candle will only burn 1/3 of the top, creating an original piece as wax will melt over to drip down the column base.

Cord Lamp Mini

Look, the Cord Lamp in a smaller table size! As you regular readers know, I love the Cord Lamp and have it in my own home (see pic here), so obviously I have to post the smaller one.

“From a snake nest of winding cords, this lamp shoots straight up and stands tall on its own. Surprising the eye by challenging the unexpected, the Cord Light is simple, yet characteristic. The cord, one of the most disturbing decorating details has been made useful. The piece is made out of a standard bulb, textile cord and steel tube.”

During the year, restack your pieces to form candlesticks for use on Shabbat . Pieces come packaged in a velvet pouch for travel or storage. Made in Israel.

Moooi Clusterlamp by Joel Degermark, 2004

Lately I’ve been thinking of adding a modern pendant lamp in my kitchen with an old medallion for a nice little juxtaposition between old and new. I did it before in my old house and I think it created a nice effect. I just love this Moooi Cluster Lamp and think it would be a perfect modern light fixture. Moooi is one of my favorite design houses right now: they have such a tongue-in-cheek view of design with a perfect sense of proportion and flawless execution.

Dimensions 6.3″W X 6.3″H; includes 118″ of wire. Uses 3 X 60W max E26 (medium base) and 2 X 40W max E12 (candelabra base) incandescent lamps (bulbs are not included).

Flat Lamp

Flat pack items are wonderful things. Less packaging is a good thing, of course, but there’s also the element of being involved (however briefly) in the creation of the object.

The lamp arrives at your house flat, with the few components ready to be assembled by your skilled hands. Within minutes, your world is illuminated not in 2D, but in wonderful, round, living 3D. You have the option of choosing what kind of light to see your world in – Light Veneer, Dark Veneer, White or Red.

Material – Stainless Steel, Veneer Polypropylene
Size – 7.9″ x 11.8″ x 7.9″

Happy Lamp by VaughShannon

Ah, yes, the forever issue of finding/reaching the switch for the table/floor lamp. This lamp solves that nicely with a convenient switch located at just the right height, no stretching or bending necessary. Plus, the jolt of color might be a great accent for an otherwise bland color scheme.

The Happy Lamp has been designed to offer a more convenient and ergonomic location for the lighting controls. The final design, which was led purely by function, takes on an anthropomorphic form, which in turn creates his charming personality.
