Costanzina Table Lamp

A smaller version of the classic:

“Paolo Rizzato’s Costanzina Lamp (1992) is a diminutive update to his classic Costanza Lamp, which has been copied so frequently, it’s become an archetype of modern lighting. Costanzina’s square brushed-aluminum base firmly holds a coordinating aluminum stem. The polycarbonate shade, which is held together with five aluminum rivets, offers a warm, diffused light and is easy to clean.”

Spotlight Floor Lamp

Not too long ago we posted the Photography Floor Lamp, and I’d say this one is comparable- perhaps this one has slightly more of a modern feel…

“15″ tripod base keeps things steady as chrome-plated lamp telescopes from 44″ to 61″ high. Especially effective in multiples. Uses one 75-watt bulb, not included. Sleek anodized aluminum shade. 98″-long cord. The on/off switch is located on the spotlight head.”

Field Bounce Light

I think this fixture is so interesting- the scale and industrial nature are sure to draw attention while doing a very good job of providing light below.

“The Field Bounce sends a broad field of light upwards providing indirect light and is ideal for custom construction. A stem up to 36″ is included. “

Eva Zeisel Brass Candlesticks

Now is the time to pre-order these Zeisel brass candlesticks- only 150 sets are currently available, so you might want to put your name down soon…

Plisse Hanging Lamp

This reflective modern lamp would be a smart choice for over a dining table or in a living room.

Honeycomb Table Lamp

This is less than $50, which is crazy considering most lamps that look similar to this retail for more than $200 (at least).

“This softly lit Honeycomb Table Lamp is made of silk worm cocoon and sits atop a wooden base. The unique swirls make this lamp a perfect accent for any living space. A definite eye-catching design.”

Tolomeo Mega Floor Lamp

I love the scale of this floor lamp.

“The Tolomeo design begins with a heavy base and ends with a matte anodized aluminum diffuser that swivels 360 degrees and can be easily turned with a cool-to-the-touch steel handle. In between, the lamp’s dual-arm body adjusts by loosening and tightening the central and bottom joints, and steel tension cables provide infinite positions in which the lamp can be held. The Mega comes with a 17″ parchment shade that reaches far over a sofa or bed.”

Dioscuri Ceiling/Wall Lamp by Michele de Lucchi

We have posted the regular Dioscuri Lamps before, but this is the ceiling/wall version, and I do have to say I’m quite taken with this as an option for above a bathroom mirror.

“this ceiling/wall mounted luminaire produces brilliant incandescent lighting. it is UL listed for wet locations and suitable for indoor and outdoor applications. a minimalist design features a simple globe and a totally hidden support structure. globe diffusers are comprised of etched white hand-blown glass, available in two distinct sizes 25(10″) and 35(14″). even though not normally visible the white mounting plate is made of durable and sleek polycarbonate. the lamp is designed for mounting to standard electrical junction boxes UL approved.”

24 Karat Blau Lighting Series by Ingo Maurer

Though the price tag is a bit higher than what most of us have for our lighting budgets, this collection is quite striking (in a strange and interesting way).

“the 24 karat series is constructed of metal, plastic and gold. this lighting series is one that both geometric and organic looking. seeming to have an aged look and a modern design at the same time, the 24 karat lights are one of ingo maurer’s most interesting.”

24 karat blau M, (on left) this version is modular, the “standard” lamp can be multiplied to make a larger fixture.

T.A.E. 1879 Oil Lamp by Opossum Design

Sure, it’s expensive, but I usually don’t like oil lamps and this one completely changed my mind. I kind of love it.

“Glass hurricane lamp houses an upturned light bulb, ironically converted into oil lamp, suspended by dipping wires. A functional sculpture created in homage to Thomas Alvin Edison’s 1879 unveiling of the world’s first long-lasting electric lamp, which lasted 13.5 hours.”

7″ x 13¾”.

Jerry Lamp

Indestructible lighting made from recyclable materials seems like a wise purchase, and at this price you won’t have to save up for it either…

“The Jerry Lamp (2005) represents a new level in lighting flexibility – literally. Made from recyclable silicone, Jerry is soft and durable, able to be dropped, knocked or tipped over with little concern. The malleable hook shape means that Jerry can be used for virtually any application – hook it onto the headboard of the bed or off the side of a bookshelf, place it on a side table or counter.”
