Mr. 2 and Mr. 5 by Tomas Alonso

Whoa. Though these are terribly expensive, they’re also completely spectacular. Part lighting and part sculpture, either of these lights are sure to become a treasured piece in your collection. I don’t mean ‘your collection’ in the home-is-a-museum sort of way, just that if you spend the money on one of these lights, you should love it enough to keep it forever.

Blok Pendant Lights

I love this simple wooden block light with its vintage style bulb. It’s a nice study in contrasts. Keep in mind that it doesn’t come with hanging hardware, but that’s easy to get (a small hook or something from the hardware store would work).

Made from a solid piece of olive wood, this light is stunningly simple in form and function. Featuring a vintage style Edison carbon filament bulb that gives off a warm orange-ish glow and allows you to see its beautiful glowing filament. This light will plug into any standard wall outlet, and comes with a 13ft black or white cord attached for easy hanging anywhere in your home.

Olive or Walnut wood.
Dimensions are: Approx. 5″ long – 2 1/4″ wide without light bulb. Bulb adds another approx. 4-5″ in length.

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.”

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″
