Wall Lighting

Pilot Lamp

Just the word ‘sconce‘ brings to mind older, more traditional interiors, but this lamp from Misewell definitely belongs to the more modern day home. With a mid-sized proportion, the lamp is a great choice for bedside or hallway, or even paired up on either side of a large mirror.

Flat Life Lamp and Clock

Another version of this Flat Life Lamp was available a couple of years ago (see 2010 post), but this Anglepoise-like image is a tad more sophisticated. Be sure to check out the Flat Life Clock (shown below) as well (how much do you wish it had an actual alarm function?).

Bracket Lamp

There’s no hiding the cord on this wall lamp by Dino Sanchez. Indeed, it’s the cord that is the lamp, along with a solid oak bracket. I love the blackened oak version, shown below, but there’s several combinations to choose from. Handcrafted in Massachusetts.

Cord Lamp by Brendan Ravenhill

Whoa, talk about being pleasantly surprised, this wall Cord Lamp by Brendan Ravenhill is one heck of a deal at $150. If I still lived in the US, I would buy two of these for bedside lamps and then sit back and congratulate myself for finding such a bargain. Simple, modern, and affordable? Music to the ears.

Twiggy Adjustable Lamp

If you’ve not seen the offerings from Cleveland based furniture design and manufacturing company Objeti, you’re in for a treat. The Twiggy LED Lamp is just one of many things I’ve been waiting to post (as not all items have hit retail shops) and it certainly does not disappoint. Two ball and socket joints allow for a multitude of positions, meaning you’ll get light right where you want it in a very stylish manner.

Anodized aluminum.
Available in black or red, with either exposed cord or direct wall mounting.

Flat Light Poster

Finally available to purchase (after quite a bit of waiting, I might add), this Flat Light Poster was designed by Finn Magee after he admired the light and atmosphere of an Anglepoise task light. This would be the perfect sort of light for a cramped space, wouldn’t it?

Mr. 2 and Mr. 5 by Tomas Alonso

Whoa. Though these are terribly expensive, they’re also completely spectacular. Part lighting and part sculpture, either of these lights are sure to become a treasured piece in your collection. I don’t mean ‘your collection’ in the home-is-a-museum sort of way, just that if you spend the money on one of these lights, you should love it enough to keep it forever.

MR. 2 (H 104.9″ x W 77.7″ x D 36.7″): $4,000.00

Light Pillow

Hmm. A pillow shaped light, but take note that it’s not an actual pillow (if the metal frame is anything to go by).

Linas Kutavicius’ Light Pillow is all about warmth and softness. This pillow shaped light can be placed on the floor (or bed), hung on the wall or used as a chandelier. Any way you use it, you’re sure to have a unique lamp.

Removable cover – easy to wash.

Liquid Lamp

Personally, I think I’d prefer a different color than red, but other than than, these lamps are pretty intriguing. They certainly are different, and I like how they’re on a smaller scale, so they can be tucked into smaller work spaces perhaps.

These stark white lamps are made from sturdy iron plate, but their fluid shape reminds us more of that glass cup full of paint that we knocked over (if it had been suspended in motion).

Designer: Kouichi Okamoto
Available in wall or table versions. Red or white interior.
Table Lamp: 11.2″W x 7.9″D x 11.8″H
Wall Lamp: 9″W x 9″D x 13.8″H

Lili Lite

While this looks to be a perfect invention for readers (automatic sensor, brilliant!), take note that if you live outside of the U.K. you should be prepared to switch out the power plug, or ask after a customized version to suit you.

Lili Lite is a reading light, a bookmark and a bookshelf combined into one smart product. A sensor turns off the light when an open book is placed on the shelf. When the book is picked up again, the light automatically turns on. Lili Lite also has a switch to turn the light on and off manually. Lili Lite is a witty design that combines function and style in a simple but ingenious way.

Pivot Sconce

These look like an excellent choice for bedside reading; mounting lights on the wall frees up valuable space on the side table and the pivoting head ensures that you’ll always have direct light on your nighttime novel. Plus, the gunmetal finish is industrial and modern, yet not too sleek (as sometimes chrome can be).

No electrician required. Easy-installation gunmetal grey steel wall-readers simply have an exposed black cloth cord that makes its way down to the outlet. Task light head pivots up, down, around. Industrial on/off toggle switch. Type B 60W or E12 bulb (not included). Mounting hardware included.
