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.”

15″ x 8″ x 5″
Hand cast plastic resin.

Louis Poulsen – Collage Pendant (lamp)

You might have to save up for it, but this pendant lamp sure would cast a nice ambient glow.

Material: Snow white (white), heavenly blue (blue), spring green (green), hotlips (pink) or smoke screen (smoketinted).

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…”
