Bague Table Lamp by Patricia Urquiola & Eliana Gerotto

Patricia Urquiola is a master at taking any material and making it look soft and delicate.

The inspiration for the Bague table lamp was drawn from the shape of a ring. It was first presented with material never before used to make a lamp. The result was a stretched metal mesh painted white or light grey, whose surface was covered in transparent silicone resin, to diffuse a soft filtered light. A thick plexiglass ‘stopper’ was used to cut glare and increase the propagation of light upwards.

Ninety Task Light

Sure, not everyone’s going to plunk down $500 for a lamp, but it is an excellent, excellent design. If you have it for the next thirty years, you could say it’s worth the $1.38 per month that it averages out to be, but then, I guess you could use that formula to justify buying anything expensive.

Bulbcap

This is a quick and easy way to dress up a bare lightbulb…

The Bulbcap is a lampshade, slightly more than a lightbulb. The caps are directly pulled over the lightbulbs of up to 40 watts. Any wattage can work when using economical lightbulbs. The Bulbcaps can be fixed on hanging bulbs from the ceiling, or on standing lamps of any kind. Mix and match various colors to create a collage of lights!

Maplemap Hanging Lamp

This is such a lovely light…

The lamp, designed by Ani+Lumigrane, was debuted at IDS08 and was an instant success. Co-created by Frederic Guibrunet, a paper-maker with a decade of practice, and Parisian Didier Boursin, an expert in origami. Their talents combined into a paper explosion of maple leaves that looks gorgeous on and off.

Broadway Linear Crystal Chandelier by James R. Moder

I recently saw this in person and it’s pretty spectacular.

“The James R. Moder Broadway Linear Crystal Chandelier is old-world, crystal magnificence in a contemporary setting. Crystals hang from both ends of multiple strands that can be wound around the central fixture. Truly, no two Broadway chandeliers are the same, as the strands can be positioned randomly, creating a unique layer of crystal on both sides of the Candelabra lamps.”

Options:- Crystal Grade: Imperial (shown), Regal, Spectra Swarovski, or Strass Swarovski.- Size: Large (features 52 strands of crystal), or Small (features 39 strands of crystal).

Large: Nine 60 Watt 120 Volt Candelabra Base Incandescent lamps (not included),
Small: Five 60 Watt 120 Volt Candelabra Base Incandescent lamps (not included).

Naughty Floor Lamp

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

Wan Floor Lamp by Naoto Fukasawa

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
