Table Lighting

RestartMilano Lamps

I hesitate to use the word ‘dainty’ to describe these lamps from RestartMilano, mostly because it brings to mind doilies and frail flowers. With their sleek swivel arms and warm brass finish, these lamps are just the opposite, yet the thin silhouette allows for a light touch in any interior, allowing other elements to take center stage. And, as an update, the Short Wall Lamp is now on sale.

Balad Lamp from Fermob

Need some flexible outdoor lighting? The Balad Lamp from Fermob is just the right size to tote around. And, compared to some other portable, outdoor lights (like the Uma), it’s absolutely affordable. The aluminum handle has a button at its base that dims the light and turns the lamp on and off. As a bonus, the accompanying Small and Large Stand transform the hand-held Balad into a floor lamp for outdoor dining or seating areas.

Bub Table Lamp

This isn’t the first or last bulb-stuck-in-the-side-of-a-lampshade you’ll see, but it is perhaps the most alluring. A bulb pierces the side of the hand blown glass shade, at just the right height for a friendly, floating apparition. The olive tint gives the lamp an extra amicable look that’s sure to get along with other pieces in your collection.

‘Pion’ Lamps

A lamp by Bertjan Pot, you say? And it’s not too terribly expensive? Well, sign me up. The ‘Pion’ lamps for Wrong.London and Hay have a shape that references a pawn chess piece (‘Pion’ is the Dutch word for “pawn”). Crafted from a stitched composite ‘Nomex’ paper, the lamp gives off a soft, diffused glow that’s sure to set the right ambience in any room. The shape is supported by a steel frame and carbon-fibre rod, and, don’t worry, the shade is both UV-stable and flame resistant. Suitable for floor or table use.

Need a little light? The Boom task light by Tom Dixon is composed of a series of cylinders and tubes arranged in a semi-industrial sculptural stack. Inspired by traditional draftsman’s and machinist’s lamps, the pivoting arm and head will focus light right where you need it, which may just help you get your work done a tiny bit faster. If not that, then at the very least you won’t have headaches from eye strain.

Alphacrete, Concrete Neon Light

Get your message across with some heavy lettering- though you’d be smart to keep it short and sweet (each letter sets you back $200). Maybe just one, short word? Seletti’s Alphacrete Lamps have neon glass surrounded by concrete for a sharp contrast. Kind of fun, right? They can go indoors or outside and can be hung on the wall or kept on a tabletop or shelf. Keep in mind to add the right transformer to your order for the amount of letters you buy.
