Theorem Desk Lamp

Inspired by the hypotenuse of a right triangle, this smaller LED lamp will tuck in nicely amongst your other desk items. You do remember what a hypotenuse is, right? The Theorem Desk Lamp from DAMM is made from hand turned solid Ash base, cerused (I had to look up what that meant), with a natural beeswax finish. And, if you’d like an alternate color scheme, here you go: Theorem – Black.

Night Light Galaxy

Sorry, I can’t help but share certain space imagery applied to ordinary household goods. You’ve seen the Night Light Moon, Earth, but this one has a portion of the Galaxy on its translucent disc, and it’s only $6! Calm down, there’s enough for everyone. For the bathroom, hallway, bedroom, etc. (I swear my home would look like a crazy Cosmologist’s if I didn’t have a little bit of restraint.)

Piani Table Lamp

Perhaps with your keen design eye you’ve guessed that the Bouroullec brothers have something to do with this cute little lamp; you’d be right, of course. With rather petite dimensions and a lower base tray- perfect for those little things like keys and coins- this lamp would do well in an entrance hall or small desk area. And, for what it’s worth, I ended up purchasing a green Piani Lamp for our entrance console, and I am very fond of it. It sheds just the right amount of light for the area. And, if you need further encouragement, the Flos 15% off sale is going on right now, so if you purchase before October 24th, the price is $271.

Rensselaer Single Sconce

She blinded me with science!“… that song will immediately spring to mind each time you walk by this wall sconce, for how could it not when it’s made from real chemistry lab supplies? And, shall we take a moment to admire how the look may change depending on the finish, cord color, and bulb you choose? Note: you might be a little sick of Edison bulbs, because they seem to be everywhere now, but I think there’s still something very appealing about their soft, candle-like glow and I refuse to be put off by their popularity.

Little Sun Solar Light

This little solar-powered LED lamp helps get clean, affordable light to the 1.6 billion people without access to electricity. How so?

Do take a look at the video below or Little Sun’s website for more info.

Form Pendants

Well, these pendants sure look impressive grouped together. They hint at the classic industrial bulbs of the past yet have a distinct modern feel thanks to the simple cord treatment. Each one is made from mouth-blown white opal glass and requires basic hardwiring (so, to do a cluster of lights you might want to call in an electrician).

Smoked Grey Table Vessel Light

The Plumen bulb looks especially appealing in this blown glass form by Decode, doesn’t it? The subtle color tint softens the light ever so slightly while the glass gives an irregular reflection that accentuates the form. In other words, it’s pretty. Also, don’t forget you can purchase the Plumen Bulb separately for your own existing light fixture should it need an upgrade.

Bulb Flashlight

Say what? It’s a flashlight and a low-heat LED rechargeable bulb? Sounds strange, but it makes sense, I guess. Extend the telescopic handle to use as a flashlight (up to 3 hours) or use it as a bulb in any standard screw-in light fitting. Like I said, strange, but seemingly practical. Using only six watts of power, the bulb is equivalent to a 40w incandescent bulb.

Drum Lamp

Upcycling! If you’ve watched any home shows (say, on HGTV) you’re likely to have seen some upcycled stuff, with some of the results semi-impressive and other attempts being downright awful. Now, I know I’ve seen used washing machine drums upcycled into lights and tables before, but it certainly wasn’t executed in such a precise manner, as shown above/below.

Powder-coating, rather than hand spray paint, helps convey a higher end look, as does the matching color cable and acrylic sheet diffusers. Tip of the hat goes to you, Willem Heeffer, for acing an upcycling project and offering more for sale for those of us that can’t be bothered with doing it ourselves.

2×4 Pendant

Is it magic that keeps this pendant in place? No, it’s not, but you can pretend if you want. This light fixture appears to be floating, thanks to a mono filament suspension, giving you a very minimal (and magical) look to your room. A frosted glass lens hides an LED strip on the underside, which keeps the 2×4 pristine with its simple, whitewashed finish.

Brass has made a comeback, and this little number from Schoolhouse Electric certainly catches the eye for its perfect, petite size that’s ideal for smaller desktops or side tables. With vintage style and an aged black patinaed arm, it offers an ambient light that would quietly compliment a refined interior.

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).
