Table Lighting

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.

Stickbulb Lamps

This Stickbulb collection by RUX for is something to be noted. A single, linear LED module is held by a minimal steel base, providing light without the mass usually associated with a table or floor lamp. That theme is repeated with all variations: Vertical and Horizontal Wall Sconces, various lengths of the Linear Pendant, and the Little Bang Table Lamp, just to name a few. Handmade in New York City from sustainably sourced materials, the collection is currently available from YLighting.

Bob and Sara Lamps by Dan Yeffet

Molded blown glass forms the base and shade of the Bob and Sara Lamps by designer Dan Yeffet. If you’ve not heard of Yeffet yet, just wait a little while, his name will pop up. The two intersecting columns on these two lamps have slight variants in shade- the darker shade at the base- which helps highlight the craftsmanship of blown glass formed into a traditional lamp shape.

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.

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.
