Table Lighting

Table Light by Iacoli & McAllister

This table light by Iacoli & McAllister is pretty adorable. Yes, I did say adorable, and I mean that in a modern-adorable way (think petite rather than ‘cute-as-pie’). You have your choice between a black or white steel shade and a black, red, or aqua textile cable cord set.

Lead time is currently 4 weeks.

Softy Lamp

As you can guess from these pictures, this lamp is made from a soft, flexible, felt-like material that allows various positions. No doubt it will provide you with a few moments of entertainment each day, especially if you have a pair.

Handmade by Laurens van Wieringen.
Also available in black, grey and orange.

Townhouse Lamp

This modern bedside lamp can be positioned in three different ways to control the light intensity. At its brightest it’s suitable for a reading lamp, at its lowest, a nightlight. Folded from a singular sheet of metal with a 2mm plexiglas to soften the glow.

Available in Black and White.

Licht Lights

Back in November, Supermarket asked us to pick a few things (see Guest curator: Better Living Through Design) and these lamps from Soo Kwon not only made the list but are still stuck in my head. With such a high-design look, it’s amazing that they have such an affordable price tag.

Price: $175.00-195.00

Book Rest Lamp

A book rest and lamp all in one, this light gives a warm glow with a low-heat CFL bulb. When you’ve finished the chapter or need a tea break, simply rest the book face down on the lamp (it becomes a “literary rooftop”) to keep your place. Might also be a good night light for someone afraid of the dark…

Fragment Lights

I’ve got my sights set on these lights from Anzfer Farms, which is just too darn bad since I’m in the UK (voltage difference, blergh). But, hey, if you’re in the good ol’ US of A, you should take a look. They’re made from reclaimed wood, some (or all) of which are gathered on the San Francisco shoreline, and have just the right amount of rustic to go with your modern (and eclectic?) surroundings. The set of four shown above sell for $400 on Anzfer’s etsy shop, but individual ones are available for around $100-$120.

Watt Table and Floor Lamp

I’m steadily making my way through featuring the various new lamps from Blu Dot’s collection, and I have to say I’m mightily impressed with the offerings. This Watt Table and Floor lamp are weirdly futuristic, but in an entirely good way. The steel panels angled together look like some child’s drawing of an alien ship, or a gross exaggeration of a pixellated spider with only 5 legs. Or a simple steel lamp entitled ‘Watt’. Nonsense aside, they’re cool looking and would give an edgy sort of atmosphere to a room.

Floor lamp, (inches) 44.75h x 21w, $299.00
Table lamp, (inches) 22h x 12.75w, $199.00

Rook Table Lamp

This little table lamp is one of the highlights of Blu Dot’s new collection, mostly because it’s satisfyingly chunky and modern. It looks like it’s got the right amount of heft to stake its claim on any side table or desktop and it has the neat trick of being able to stand on one leg (see below) too. Also, remember that you can get 20% off all Blu Dot items until Nov 8th by using BLUDOT20 at checkout.

Book Table Light

This Book Light by Studio MS appears to have a lovely soft glow, no doubt due to the delicate pleated paper used to conceal the bulb. The small fawn-colored book is available from Gretel, but contact Studio MS to see other colors and the hanging (£180/$200) and larger version (£200/$230).

Grigio Lamp

This is a great little modern piece from CB2 that looks decidedly more sophisticated than the price tag may indicate. Resin base with glossy powdercoat finish topped with Linen/poly shade.

Price: $59.95

Rose Line Table Lamp

Here’s a surprisingly affordable table lamp from CB2. It’s got that minimal/luxe look with a white linen shade and a handblown glass cylinder base. The red cloth cord is a nice detail too.

Satsuma Lamp

Radiating blades of plywood slats have the traditional ‘lamp’ silhouette while filtering the bright glare of a lightbulb into a nice soft glow, thus eliminating any need for a ho-hum lampshade. I particularly like how the wood will give an extra element of texture to a room.

Designer: Jonas Damon
Material: Plywood
16 x 16 x 12 inches

Bakelite? The plastic from about 100 years ago? Indeed, it is. Available in the brilliant hues of billiard balls, these polished lamps will definitely light up a desk or nightstand.
