Photography Floor Lamp

For just under $100, this floor lamp is pretty decent. I like the ’40s feeling to it, as it would add a little bit of antiquity to a room.

“Retake of a 1940s studio source light, scaled anew for residential sets. Adjustable-angle brushed metal head angles light easy on the eyes with a frosted glass diffuser. Metal pole on raised X-base adjusts in height 47″ to 67″. Hardware included.”

XYZ Candle Holder

This cool candle holder has multiple arrangement options (stacked or individual) and reminds me of those cool old drawings of ‘architecture of the future’.

“..Elegant dark Wenge wood and cool and sleek aluminum make for a classy and elegant presentation of this new candle holder and the fact that it extends into all three axis leaves you lots of room for experimentation… Get a couple of them and start arranging them in different ways: arrange them back to back, or cascading in size, or turn them into a modernistic setting by stacking them…”

These have an interesting textural look about them, and, considering their size, would certainly add a nice patterned lighting effect.

Noglobe

This lamp seems to be a slight variation on the ubiquitous globe light. Might be just enough detail to add a little more ‘oomph’ to your living or sleeping area.

Constellation 19 Light Pendant

So, let me preface by saying I encourage you not to use the color bulbs, as they might might take away from the overall effect. But, what do I know? You might like some color in your lighting. That said, I do like the delicate glass globes and I fully support that the light comes with Halogen bulbs.

If you’re not too happy with the size (or price) of the one shown, it is available in smaller (and larger) configurations.
