Table Lighting

Glint Lamp

A portable light with magnetic points? Do go on. Depending on where you place the lamp, the light will change, and as there are various surfaces on the metal bookstand/shelf, you’ll have fun messing around with different vantage points. Right now this lamp is available for sale by emailing Galula Studio directly: store(at)galulastudio.com.

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 (as in, not heavy) touch in any interior, allowing other elements to take center stage. Three versions available: Long Wall Lamp, Short Wall Lamp, and Table Lamp.

Doll Lamp

Inspired by the shape of the traditional Japanese ‘Kokeshi Doll‘, this small lamp combines “feminine sensitivity and Foscarini’s technological design research capabilities.” Let’s also say that it’ll be your little lamp friend, shedding light on those dark, lonely nights. The blown glass ‘head’ emits a warm, diffused light while the plastic body allows for several color options. And, as the size comes in at just 8.5″ high and 6.5″ diameter, it can tuck into smaller spots quite well.

Cage Lamps

The Cage lighting collection designed by Arik Levy for Forestier combines the industrial aspect of protective cage light fixtures with traditional paper lanterns (a more obvious iteration is found in the In & Out Lamp small and large). This opposites-attract formula results in a successful pairing that is surprisingly elegant, and as a result this collection has moved to the top of the wish-this-was-available-statside list.

Channel Task and Reading Lamp

How about some lighting from Rich Brilliant Willing for this Wednesday afternoon? The Channel lamps are fit for many a modern interior, thanks to their minimal silhouette and material mix. High efficiency LEDs are set up in a linear configuration and housed in an aluminum channel (clue as to where the lamps get their names); add a vertical wood dowel and a circular metal base and, ta-da, you have your minimal light source that’s perfect for a desktop or reading chair, depending on the version you choose.

Fin Table Light

Goodness. Who knew the inner workings of a lamp could look as good as this? Nice job yet again, Mr. Dixon. An ode to engineering, the Fin Light exposes the components usually hidden from view. What you’d think was merely a design feature is its heat sink (which if you have no idea what that is, here’s a link to images of lamp heat sinks). That and the giant acrylic lens and 6 LEDs result in a design that is self-contained yet visually exposed.

Leti Table Lamp

Here’s another price increase: back in 2010, the Leti Lamp was $369 for the small 12.5″h size, and now it’s $500. That’s a score for the ‘don’t procrastinate’ camp. For those of you in the ‘save until you can afford’ camp, you’ll be saving a little longer for this all in one eco-sustainable desk lamp and bookend.

DIY Table Lamp by Dino Sanchez

Check it. This do-it-yourself DS Kit 02 table lamp by Dino Sanchez can be assembled in less than 10 minutes with a phillips screw driver (if you’re super handy, I’m sure you can knock that time down to 5-7 minutes). All the components are included- even the lightbulb. There’s also a wall version, DS Kit 01 ($75), fyi.

Tokyo Lamp I & II

Who is this little guy and where did he come from? The Tokyo lamp is from Misewell, and, as said earlier, Misewell can do no wrong when it comes to furniture and accessories. Little lamps are great fits for smaller tables, and as you can see from the picture below, it would complement the Grain Desk quite nicely. The shade pivots and the neck can be adjusted to give the right stance.

Pearson Clip Lamp

This is not your humble clamp light ($9), as you can tell from the price. David Weeks has designed this clip lamp for DWR, and, as expected, it features his signature asymmetric shade along with rubber-padded clamp rings for stability. Now, is it worth the $256 price difference? As usual, that is entirely up to you.

Flaca LED Light

This strange* little light is made from a tri-fold sheet of stainless steel that can be bent to reach a height up to fourteen inches. While bending a steel lamp might seem counterintuitive, it’s meant to be customized according to your needs, so flex those arm muscles and bend away. Available for a limited time only from MoMA’s Destination: Mexico collection.

Edison Lamp

This glass cylinder lamp marries old style with modern aesthetics, making it a good choice for an eclectic interior. The clear glass means you should probably opt for Edison style filament bulbs, otherwise you’d be missing the point altogether.
