Silhouette Wall Light

The floor lamp version is especially interesting…

“In its ‘off’ position this is a white rectangle, seemingly blending into the wall. But pull on the cord, and the glow of a sconce is revealed.”

Wall Light

This is another piece from the Plastic-Fantastic collection, in which you can select the color of the Soft Skin® rubber coating.

“The focus of the collection has been vintage and restored pieces in a baroque style the forms of which become somewhat homogenized with the unification of a single color.”

Technic Wall/Ceiling Lamp

This perfect spotlight would work well to illuminate a task area. Also, the price is right and the quality is high.

*Reader Update*:

A reader just purchased 8 of these and said that “the product shot is a bit deceiving. It looks like the light mounts flush to the wall when in fact the back plate will stick out almost an inch from the wall unless you do a lot of extra work to recess the unit into the wall. But they’re still really nice.”

Piatto Wall Sconce

This certainly looks great when it’s white on white, but I suppose it would look equally as nice when it’s contrasted with a wall color since it has such a nice spherical edge.

“The Piatto Wall Sconce, by Luceplan, designed by Sandra Colbertaldo and Paolo Rizzatto, projects from the wall as a beautiful accent piece. Smooth and slender, it softly hovers above, lluminating light all around it. ”

Depth 11 in., Height 2 in., Width 17 in.

Light Reading by Sam Johnson

British designer Sam Johnson has an ingenius way of lighting your booksshelves in a very integrated way.

“Light Reading was designed to nestle in amongst your books and remain invisible until illuminated. Made from a material called ‘Secret sign’ (by Perspex), the light is bent into the shape of a book. Inside the book a low energy lamp is mounted providing a safe and low temperature light source. When switched off it blends in with the other books with its matt black spine. Once illuminated the light reveals its title, which is laser engraved on the inside.

Includes cable, switch and plug.”

This is quite stunning.

“Creepers is a complex pattern of fine, light catching leaves made of laser sintered nylon. Clipping an array of Creeper stems on floor-to-ceiling cables creates floating clouds of light that divide interior spaces. Intertwined leaves sprout from the stem in a seemingly random disorder: collectively these surfaces cover a pre-ordained reflector area. Each leaf follows the same structural rules but with considerable scope for individual variance. Thicknesses taper from the main stem to reflectors thin enough to be semi-translucent. The stems contain LEDs that project light onto the leaves.”

Janne Kyttanen: 1597 Wall Sconce

Strictly for the ‘wow’ factor, this sconce has to be mentioned…quite amazing.

“1597 is based on the Fibonacci sequence of numbers appearing in the nature all around. 1597 is inspired by the Coneflower and the way its seeds’ growing patterns are arranged. All the holes in this shade are arranged around the bulb, so no matter where you look at it, you can’t escape the beatiful rays of light it creates.
1597 can be mounted on the wall or on the ceiling. Due to being such a strong decorative shape, it works well as s single source of light as well as an arrayed sequence of lights.
Notes: since this is a European wall sconce, please make sure to ask your electrician if the mounting will match your wall outlet.”

Size: 12.5″ diameter x 6.3″ deep.

Lytegem Lamp

I’ve long had a love affair with this little lamp. Designed in 1965 by Michael Lax, it remains a classic due to it’s simple design and localized light especially fitted for tableside/bedside reading. It’s available now in a limited commemorative edition from Lightolier.

“The telescoping neck adjusts from 6.5” to 15” and the lamp head swivels 360°. Light intensity can be changed from low to high using a switch located on the base. The heavy cube base anchors the design, and can be wall mounted for multi-directional sconce lighting.”

Available in Black, Persimmon, or White

This light casts quite a nice delicate glow…and the size of it would go anywhere. Plus, it simply just leans against the wall, so you don’t have to mess with mounting it (and you can move it around fairly easily).
