The Nymph is a rather unusual luxury lamp in the shape of an insect in its nymph life stage (right after it hatches from the egg). If having a multi-legged insect as a lamp is somehow appealing to you, maybe the $2,600 price tag will encourage you to give it a second thought.

While some lights are designed to help you read a book, this Butterfly Lamp by Japanese design studio Vinta takes a page from a book’s shape instead. It easily allows you to adjust how much light is in an area in a fluid way by opening or closing its two “wings.”
