carlos night-light by kathleen walsh

If one were to need a night-light, why not have one named Carlos? If it doesn’t strike you as your favorite, give it some time; it’ll grow on you.

“the carlos night-light is a small porcelain night light with a sweet disposition. designed by kathleen walsh for walteria living, carlos is constructed of bright white porcelain which emits a warm glow when lit from the inside. carlos comes complete with a clip socket, 7.5 watt bulb and a snap-together linen medical cone.”

Romance 06 Wall Lamp by Contraforma

This is the first time I’ve laid eyes on the wall lamp of Contraforma’s Romance collection, and I have to say I’m quite pleased that they’ve expanded into lighting.

“an unmistakably modern lamp with a neo-romantic twist. the stark durability of laser-cut, powder-coated steel is offset by fragile perforation, which gives way to the light from within and acts as a playground for illumination and shadows. 27 x 12d x 27 cm (10.6″ sq; 4.7″d). available in white with white interior, champagne with white interior, or graphite black with white interior.”

(I do have to warn you that shipping might take a little longer than you’re used to, ’cause it’s from across the pond…but that’s a small price to pay I think.)

Mood-Light Flat Tile

This would work well for a commercial installation and would be especially cool in the right residential application. I say this because it would probably work best in a room where the light it creates is the central focus, not the furnishings.

“The Mood-Light Flat Tile is a large square panel concealing LED’s that pulse and sweep in an infinite variety of colors. Create your own light scenarios and color combinations with the Mood-Light remote control. By changing the intensity of the primary colors red, green and blue you can blend unlimited color combinations. Preprogrammed sequences are included. You can display active light functions, random interchanging color combinations, rainbow color sequences, fusions of gradually changing colors and pulsating light. The sound mode displays color effects in sync with music beats. The Mood-Light Flat Tile has a flat diffuser with no outer frame, allowing groups to fit together to form a near seamless light wall. Multiple units can be installed together to create a wall of light. DMX version also available.
panel, remote control and power supply sold separately. remote and power source are necessary for operation. UL approved.”

Reflective Light Panels

This is pretty cool. It’s similar to the light panels posted the other day, but the light hides behind a reflective surface until you tell change it via remote.

Thanks JP!

Plexo Light

Pretty lights are one of my favorite things…and I like the fact that it kind of does an optical illusion as you move around it:

“Think of the Plexo as a futuristic take on a traditional Japanese lantern. Plexo’s shell is made from one flat die cut film that has been folded origami-style. The form looks solid but feels flexible when you touch it. Lights inside the Plexo refract on the shell to create an optical illusion that wraps and changes as you walk around it.

You can easily attach Plexo to the wall using the included wall mount pin. Alternately, Plexo can sit flat on a tabletop or dresser.”

11″l x 11″w x 4.50″d (6 foot cord)

Delight

This is probably a little different than what you’re used to. A soft, woven fibre-glass cloth is the “shade” of this light, and possibilities are endless. You can hang in on a wall, lay it on the floor- really, any way you choose, this light would be lovely.

Tong Wall Light

This would be voted “easiest light fixture to install”. No directions necessary (except for you read-everything-twice-before-picking-up-the-drill) since you just screw in the curved aluminum piece to the wall, and then clip in the reflective bulb. All that’s left is plugging the cord into an outlet. See? Super easy.

7″ tall, 2.5″ wide, and 8″ in depth
