Gus Design Group Vintage Swing Arm Lamp

I love how simple this lamp is. Hinge, arm, bulb and that’s it. No fuss.

The Vintage Swing Arm lamp is a simple light fixture that swings from a stainless steel wall mounted hinge. It can be operated from a footswitch and includes mounting hardware and a vintage inspired filament lightbulb.

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

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.

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.”

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.”
