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.”

dioscuri 35 13.3″h x 13.7″w, $232

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.”

Green or white.

Log Lamp by Elliott Johnson

Hand made by the designer, the log lamp provides a subtle light with a big impact.

“A surprising synthesis of material, form and function, the log lamp suggests that illumination sometimes comes from where you least expect it. The lamp’s stylized shape intimates its natural inspiration; when switched on, a soft glow through its frosty frame places it firmly in a modern context. Molded in plastic from a real log.”

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.
