Lighting in your home is one of those items that you don’t always notice when it has a good presence and feeling when you’re in the space.

Hiding beneath its opalescent polycarbonate skin are a number of bright white LEDs which provide clean, green illumination. You can find the Abyss Lamp from Y Lighting for about $500.
The Mushroom Lamp is a glowing feat of technology. But it’s not the power efficient LEDs that will stretch the life of the 4AA battery power supply that has us impressed.
