Wall Lighting

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.

Dimensions: cloth: 28.75″ x 28.75″
Materials: glass fiber cloth, synthetic material, 40W bulb

Nut Sconce

The Nut Sconce by Ray Power (is that a stage name?) uses thin woof veneer (in either natural cherry or white ash) over a formed polyester shape which allows both direct and indirect lighting.

The Sconce easily installs vertically or horizontally. Bulb (not included): Incandescent 40W/120V/E26/A19. Made in Spain

Writer’s Block Lamp

This is something fun- it can function as a bookend or as an “enlightened” book within a row of books. Hand-polished.

Dimensions: 7.25″H x 5.3″W x 2″D
Materials: Clear Lexane

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

(8’ white cordset and a 40w bulb are included in the price)

lunette lamp

This was designed as an affordable way to filter out the harsh light of a lone bulb. Attractive on one bulb, and even more so on several bulbs. This won an award in ID magazine.

Here they are en masse at Bergdorf Goodman.

Remote controlled mood lighting

Several years ago I saw a remote controlled lamp in which you could change the color and the brightness of the light. I really wanted it but it was $6,000 and much too expensive for my meager salary. But look! Now it’s available at a much more reasonable price.

  • Mouth-blown parnaterraglas with frosted semi-transparent finish.
  • Rechargable powersupply, and LED smd unit.
  • Water resistant.
  • Modes: color cycle and static color
  • Rechargeable batteries provide up to 10 hours of lighting.
  • 11 inches wide x 11 inches high.

    Octate Bow Lamp

    This wall sconce would be great in a hallway or by the bedside. It incorporates 2 of my favorite features: bentwood walnut, and wall mounting (for a streamlined appearance).

    It’s got a 15 foot cord, but I’m thinking why not just call an electrician and have them install it properly in the wall? Call me crazy, but if I spend almost $500 on bedside lamps, I don’t want a cord draped on the ground.

    Also available in maple.

    H 24″ x W 12″ x D 5″

    Trophy light

    This reminds me of something you might see in the Ice Hotel in Sweden. It would look good in a really stark room.

    Ball wall lamp

    Just enough to look good, not enough to overpower…a perfect fix to highlighting spots in a room.
