Wall Lighting

Molded Felt Lamp by The Wilding.com

This looks like it gives off a lovely glow.

The Wilding’s first release is a limited edition of pressed Felt Lamps. They were designed in 2004 by Matthew Radune with assistance from Susanna Hohmann. They are made of natural (non-dyed) white industrial felt, molded to hold a new form. The lamp is approximately 13″ W X 24″ H, and is wall hung. Use only compact fluorescent bulbs.

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.

Cornelius and Catherina Wall Lights (Pair)

These are a great pair of wall lights- you see portraits only when they’re on, otherwise they’re just a plain grey or white.

Wall lights as functional art…literally!
This discreet pair of oval canvas wall lights reproduce two “shy” old Master Paintings of the Flemish school that appear only when the lights are switched on. Switched off, the wall lights assume a simple, modern monochromatic look. Turn them on, the features of Cornelius and Catherina will filter trough, giving your decor a refined yet modern look. Sold in pairs. Available with a grey or a white canvas background.

Size: oval shaped 18.5″H 14.17″W

Hono Light

Check this out: what functions essentially as a candle is actually an LED. That in itself is nothing particularly new, but this flickering light has a magnetic “match” which turns it on or off.

The Hono Light (2005) combines the warm ambient glow of a candle with advancements in LED technology to create an “object that fascinates us in a moment.” This is Chiaki Murata’s goal for everything in his product line, Metaphys. When lit, Hono flickers like candlelight, with a “flame” produced by an algorithm-programmed LED. Turn it on or off by gently striking a magnetic “match” on the lamp’s surface. The light can also be blown out, like a candle, and will automatically turn back on after 10 seconds. Able to be safely affixed to a wall, Hono has some advantages over traditional wax. It comes with a charger, and one 15-hour charge will keep Hono illuminated for eight hours.

Slot Recessed Wall Light

Whoa, these lights are absolutely lovely. Perfect for any modern interior space, they can be recessed into walls or ceilings to provide the right amount of indirect lighting.

“Slot is characterized by its ease of mounting and maintenance thanks to its cover held in position by neodyium magnets.”

Heavy Guy #1

We’ve posted the Lightweight and ‘Heavy Guy’ Chandelier (which is also currently one of our banner images) by Mischa Vos, and surprisingly somehow missed this little wall light. It’s incredibly minimal (and affordable too).

“Subtle and sophisticated, the weight of a single, naked bulb is held suspended in air by a thin, steel rod. Simply adjust the length of the cord to create a beautifully curved line. A crisp, clean look in a captivating, contemporary form.”

Materials: Steel rod, Wire, 40W bulb

Cord length: 19.75″

Filo Square Pendant and Sconce

This feather like paper pendant and sconce look like they would add a good amount of soft light. I think it would look stellar to do three pendants in row above a dining table.

“Filo paper and a brushed nickel shade. This wispy lighting piece is more like illuminated art and will give any room a new approach to lighting.”

16″h x 7″w pendant.
Includes 50 watt MR16 halogen bulb.

Reveal Lamp by Adam Frank

Living in an vast expanse of concrete? Don’t have enough windows or trees? This lamp creates the effect of moving branches on a tree outside a window.

“As air currents pass through the projector, the branches of the projected tree appear to sway in a gentle, morning breeze. An ideal solution for small, urban spaces, and rooms that could use a “view”.”

Approx. 8″W x 6″L x 8″H
