The Swing LED Table Lamp by Objekten is made of 100% recyclable copper and has high quality LEDs to light your worktop perfectly. Available in black, brown, red, or blue.

Dowood Table Lamp Collection

A little geometry with a little color won’t do your home any harm, and, in fact, one of these lamps by new French house Colonel might just do it some good. The petite size will fit into any dark and dreary corner and give off a nice, warm glow. The shade is made of thin sycamore hand-painted with various colors and sits upon a diagonal steel wire base.

BL7 Wall Sconce

Brass Bauhaus attack! And from Bestlite again, no less. Listen, there’s the bad brass tchotchkes you can find at your local thrift store, and then there’s the good brass, which you will pay through the nose for and not regret it. This wall sconce is firmly in the latter category. So elegant and refined, your visitors will wonder if you’ve just inherited a big pile of cash (say you found it at a thrift store and they’ll not come back asking for a loan).

Void Pendant Light

Look at this beauty. It’s not new, but it is something worth revisiting for its shiny, spectacular surface. Each light is made from solid metal sheets that are pressed, spun and brazed to form the double walled shade. Referencing the Olympic medals, the Void Light is available in three metallic finishes: brass, polished stainless steel and copper. The halogen light provides a ‘soft directional beam’.

Capello Lamp

Let’s just get this straight: this lamp is $160. Compared to the Love Letter Light (also by molo), which ran around the $400 mark, that’s a bargain. Now, consider its marble base, which is actually a byproduct from the base for the Arco floor lamp designed by the Castiglioni brothers. Next, the little paper cap (“cappello” in Italian) is attached to the steel wire with a simple magnetic connection, which allows you to slide and tilt it into any position. Do you remember that it costs $160? Such a nice price for a lovely little lamp. And, if you like, you can remove the steel wire and paper cap to move the light to other places, say, a wine bottle or a small hole drilled into a wood surface. More shots below.

Boya Lamp

This little lamp takes its inspiration from the sea- think lighthouse beacons and buoys. At 8.5″ high and 7.5″ in diameter, it’s small enough to fit on a desk or large side table without taking up a lot of visual space, especially as there’s no traditional cloth lampshade. The base is made of reclaimed American red and white oak beams and the shade is thick, tinted grey glass.

Minimis Outdoor Luminaires

What is this, you say… and I know we’re both not talking about the half-dollar coin, but the small, round, metal object next to it. That’s a very tiny-aperture recessed LED indoor/outdoor luminaire- called the 1Puck LP- for your walls, floors, decks, and ceilings. And it packs a powerful punch: it consumes only 1 watt, yet throws a 12 to 14 foot beam. There’s also the Thumbtack LP, which is a tiny-aperture landscape LED luminaire perfect for installing in earth/grass, mulch, or hardscape.

Miyake Table Lamp

To change position of this lamp, you simply place the base on one of its 24 faces. I’d have to see this in person to really know how easy it would be to maneuver, but I do like the simplicity of base-stem-light with no extra joints or pivots. Also, is there something a little golf-like about the faceted white base and club-ish head?

NUD Classic Black Pendant

A simple grouping of hanging pendants is made all the more interesting when you mix up the cord colors and bulbs. After all, it’s fun to go a little crazy in lighting options, especially if you pick a few of your favorite hues. The NUD classic pendant has a load of color options, even more so if you order directly from the NUD Collection Webshop, and you could even go super crazy and pick out different socket colors, though I’d advise against it as it could look a lot less planned and a little more insane.

WeMo Light Switch

And, now, ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes upon a Wi-Fi® enabled light switch. It’s by the same company as the WeMo Switch (makes a lot of sense) and it allows you to turn lights on and off from anywhere. Maybe you’re on the other side of the house or maybe you’re in another country, either way, you can control your lights remotely with a Android smartphone, tablet, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. You can also program your lights for specified times, as in on at sunset and off at sunrise, which would be especially helpful for certain areas like your front door. And, if you’re not afraid of a little DIY, you can easily replace your regular light switch with the WeMo; there’s an installation video to guide you along.

Noguchi Akari Lights

Paper lights are everywhere in today’s marketplace (for example, IKEA’s VÄTE Table lamp), yet there’s still something entirely special about the original designs of Isamu Noguchi. Icons of mid century design, each Akari lamp is handmade from washi paper and bamboo ribbing by the original manufacturer in Gifu, Japan. In the words of Noguchi, “the harshness of electricity is thus transformed, as if by magic, into the light of our origins – sunlight – so that it’s warmth can carry on filling our rooms after dark.”

Pablo Clamp Lamp

Task lights tend towards the metal/utilitarian look, and that’s why this wooden Clamp Lamp stands out. Whether you choose walnut or white oak, the wood gives a certain charm and warmth, and the seemingly simple design of 3 components gives a wide variety of positions for focused light.
