Table Lighting

Light Line

A new design from the Lindsey Adelman Studio that’s available immediately? What!? Usually any design takes weeks to ship, but not this little Light Line designed by Mary Wallis. It utilizes a cold cathode tube to form a somewhat traditional table lamp shape and has a brushed brass base and dimmer switch. If you’re looking for a special lamp to add some edginess to your decor, this just might be it.

Mr. N LED Table Lamp

That’s right, it’s a lamp. The Mr. N LED Table Lamp will most likely get a few double takes thanks to its outside illuminated surface. Shaped like a lowercase ‘n’, the lamp uses advanced light panel technology to emit a soft, warm glow that’s easy to control and adjust with a one-finger touch. Mr N’s dimensions are small- 7.5″ H x 4.30″ W x 3.2″ D- so it could easily fit on a smaller desk, bookshelf, or table.

Pixo LED Table Lamp

Remember this little guy? The Pixo Lamp incorporates a USB port in its base, which means more convenience when charging our mobile devices. However many times you’ve reached behind your sofa/bed/table/desk to pick up a charging cable, you know it’s been too many.

There are other impressive things about this lamp (360 degree rotating head, three-axis articulating stem, uses just five watts thanks to low-energy LEDs, etc.) but all we’re going to appreciate right now is the USB port (Hat tip to designers Pablo and Fernando Pardo for this small yet significant detail). Now on sale from DWR, $169.15 – $174.25, until October 23, 2014.

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.

Aerostat Table Lamp

Do you need a little extra light in your life? And I do mean that literally, as in an extra table lamp. If so, turn your eyes toward the Aerostat. As you may know, an Aerostat is a lighter than air craft that stays aloft with the use of buoyant gas. Similar in feel, the white blown glass diffuser of this lamp from Fabbian (designed by Guillaume Delvigne) rests upon a vertical steel frame, giving it an airy, light look. Choose between a Satin Nickel or Brass finish.

Magno Tube Lamp

With some magnet trickery, you can change the angle of this copper-colored Magno Tube Lamp to suit your needs. Such flexibility is possible thanks to the separate parts of concrete base, tube, and cord. Let the light hang, pull the cord taut, whichever way you change it up it’ll be more versatile than any regular ol’ table lamp. Neat!

Rosie Table Lamp

Most people look better with a warm, rosy glow on their face, and while you may not be able to carry around this table lamp with you everywhere you go, you will be able to sit strategically beside it should you want to impress a guest. Designed by Ceci Thompson, the Rosie Lamp is made of Carrara-style marble and handmade rose-colored painted glass.

CMYK Up Lamp

What the what is going on with this CMYK Up Lamp? Dennis Parren has combined red, yellow, and blue LED bulbs to create an interesting mix of light. When the three primary colors are combined, you’ll see a white light. However, when one of these color bulbs is blocked by the structural form of the lamp itself, then the other two combine to produce tertiary shadows (cyan, magenta, and yellowish colors). Pretty spectacular, isn’t it?

Pixo LED Table Lamp (black/brass)

With the new color pairing of black and brass, the Pixo looks like it has put on its tux (or little black dress) and is ready for a night out. As you might remember from our previous post last year, the standout feature of the Pixo is not necessarily the 360 degree rotation and three-axis articulated stem; instead its USB port in the base for charging mobile devices seems to set it apart from the pack.

Birdy T Table Lamp

Some of the new offerings from Forestier are interesting enough to mention, one of which is this Birdy T Table Lamp. A handful of materials (metal, marble, stone, and cloth cord) make for a simple, white T-shape lamp that would fit on a desk or side table quite well. LEDs give you energy efficiency without sacrificing the brightness you need to read by, and the 4 feet of red fabric cord adds a nice pop of color against the otherwise all-white body. Also be sure to check out the Deposit Table Lamp, which has a similar look but a more concentrated beam.

Ball LED Indoor Outdoor Lamp

How about adding a cordless, rechargeable, waterproof, and energy efficient light that can live indoors or out to your abode? The Ball LED Lamp is pretty perfect for making your outdoor evening soirees a little more romantic. It’s entirely portable, and will withstand all sorts of bad weather. You can even throw it in the pool for a floating lighting display (I’m sure party planners already know this) should you want a more impressive atmosphere. Get the Pebble Remote to control color options and/or several lamps up to a distance of over 66 feet.

Tua Table Lamp

The Tua Table Lamp looks interesting, sure, but it also helps that Marco Zito, the designer, explains his thinking behind the design (see below), and thereby performs an excellent sales pitch. Simple and elegant, the price point hovers just around the $300 mark, depending on which retailer you choose.

J1 Studio’s C Lamp

$138? Is that right? J1 Studio’s C Lamp is made from lightweight polypropylene and utilizes a folding technique to avoid a metal frame, thus reducing the cost associated with manufacturing (one can guess). Wooden tripod legs complete the simple lamp, giving a minimal, natural look to any room that needs an extra light source. Designed by Jae Won Cho of J1 Studio, where you may also purchase the lamp directly.

Lumio Book Lamp

The Lumio looks like a hardcover book, but open it up and you’ve got a sculptural LED light. This compact form makes it easy to take with you, especially as its pleated interior is made of water-resistant Tyvek, so it can even venture outdoors for backyard barbecues or short camping trips. I received a Lumio recently to see it up close (and made a little video) and I was quite impressed with the overall quality- plus, there are so many lighting options you can really put it anywhere. Hang it, lay it on its side or back, or attach it to any metal surface. More info below, or take a look at Lumio’s gallery for more pics.
