The textured amber glass torso of this happy pup glows while an inquisitive muzzle points up as if to ask what the next adventure will be. Antiqued brass finish on extremely detailed metal, including an adorable buckle collar and dangling name tag.
Use exterior wall sconces for décor: Outdoor lighting doesn’t have to only be utilitarian. Wall sconces can provide washes of light against the exterior walls of your home to create ambiance in the evening hours.
The guys at Transparent House have a great idea for what to do with all of those translucent old cassette tapes clacking together under the bucket seats of your Impala: glue them together and fashion them into a lamp.
“We looked at the height adjustment as an extension of your movement. Rather than setting height it feels as if TableAir understands your needs and becomes an extension of your movements.” Due of the custom ambient LED light, TableAir can become the focal point of any interior when not in use.
The color of each cassette’s plastic shell and the half-rewound spooling of the magnetic tape itself will determine the kaleidoscopic pattern cast upon the walls.
At first this looks just like a mild-mannered table lamp (except for the fact that it’s almost six feet tall), but open it up and you’ll see a tiny table lamp sitting on a table. It’s like those Russian nesting dolls. The most surprising aspect of this design is its price, $3,888.
The designer’s mission was to set three different sets of lightning (three “SCENES”) and show how with one interior and different lighting, you can feel in different ways:
The delicate design opens like a book into a honeycomb pattern that’s held together with small clips in the back. Once unfolded, it presents a soft-yet-stable paper lamp that has its own aura of architecture. It comes without any wiring or bulbs, so all you’ll need to do is add a bulb and a cord and you’re set.
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.
OCIU is available in various colors: black and white entirely with internal processing leaf gold or silver.The word “ociu” means “pay attention,” as if you could ignore something this big. Finally you have to agree that the Ociu Light from Zava stunning but nevertheless linear and very elegant.
Transparent House isn’t providing directions or even saying if they are selling these, but the idea’s simple enough I imagine anyone could make this work with a little bit of elbow grease.
These unique lighting fixtures out of Germany reuse old dead light bulbs to create dramatic sculptural lamps. Bulbs Unlimited sells kits that let you create fixtures like the ones pictured here from your own recycled bulbs.
The $139 price tag is rather steep IMHO, but then again good ideas are hard to come by, and when they do, they are rarely cheap.
Pendant lighting is used in areas of your home that you need direct task lighting, or you need a drop down ambient light from a higher ceiling. Depending on your task and the decorative look you’re trying to achieve, pendant lighting can be perfect for your home.
