For those who want things that are a little bit out of common, here is a great and beautiful example of how you can use illumination with style. Javier Henriquez and Sebastian Lara from the Mexican design studio eos méxico got inspired by the suburb afternoons and came up with this beautiful birds on a wire illumination. A simple design, but the effect is very interesting, and I’m sure that is not to much work to build yourself one of these.
The rocks are fixed together in a pillar so that the light from the lamp cascades right down over them like a waterfall. Price : $119.00
When completely closed, it measures just 2.75? tall (and looks like a high tech stapler). Open it up, and it can reach up to almost 22? in height. This beautiful design doesn’t come cheap, the price is $595 USD, but if you want something cool and elegant you have to pay the price.
When you look at this lamp design it seems as if a strange creature is sliding down a rope. Gently and almost weightlessly, radiating a warm and graceful light. Alien. Available in two different sizes and four variations, as pendant, table, floor lights, and outdoor. The lights are being manufactured and sold by Next, and are be available to purchase since September 2008, designed by Büro für Form.
While in a living room, opt for a floor lamp next to a couch or favorite reading chair. In bathrooms the lighting at the mirror should be free from shadows and glaring light.
Blown glass, fabric, and colorful stained-glass effects make pendant lights unique and attractive. In your home, use pendant lights as sculptural artwork and effective ambient lighting, all-in-one.
For nurseries consider a dim wall sconce, or table lamp that can be used for changing diapers, or rocking infants to sleep.
This lamp design is by Nicolo Taliani of Italy. His lamp solves the perennial problem of long, dangling lamp electrical cords. If you are not fond of bundling up the cord with some unsightly tie, then it makes so much sense to incorporate that cord as part of the design of the lamp.
