Astral Chandelier by jGoodDesign

Astral Chandelier by jGoodDesign

 

This first fixture is the Astral Chandelier by jGoodDesign. It is crafted of hand blown glass and is fully customizable. The fixture can be designed with either one tier of glass or multiple tiers and you have the option of either including or not including the satin stripes inside the fluted glass. The fluid, unique, airiness of this chandelier makes it incredibly versatile. More information can be seen here.

 

Bloom Lumen by Adam Frank

Bloom Lumen by Adam Frank

 

This oil lamp fixture is called Bloom Lumen and is by Adam Frank.  The series Lumen by Adam Frank act as shadow projectors. Each piece is unique and is meant to create a shadow on a wall. The flickering flame adds an organic dimension to the projected art. Adam Frank has six different varieties of the fixture and they can be seen and purchased ($48) here.

 

Fujiya Floor Lamp from Dare Studio

Fujiya Floor Lamp from Dare Studio

 

I love the simple yet interesting lines of the lamp. This lamp is the Fujiya Floor and Table lamp by Dare Studio. The lamps are available in either American Black Walnut or American White Walnut and the steel shades come in three colors- red, white, and black.  Gloss and custom colors are also available as a special order. It is manufactured in the UK, so if you are outside of th UK some rewiring may have to be done for this fixture. I think this would be a great accent to a home office!

Here are some great fixtures for you on this lovely Thursday…

 

6-Globe Branching Bubble by Lindsey Adelman

6-Globe Branching Bubble by Lindsey Adelman

 

First up is the 6-Globe Branching Bubble by Lindsey Adelman.  This piece is one of many in her Bubble Series.  Each piece is made to order with hand-blown glass globes and custom metal fittings. The whole fixture can be customized in terms of overall dimensions and number of globes as well as the finishes. The globes come in 14K gold foil, murrine, white cane, aqua, and white and metal finish options include oil rubbed bronze, satin nickel, brushed brass, and brushed 24K gold. There is a 10 week lead time for each piece and the average price is $1600/globe. Depending on the finish, I could see this fixture in a number of places, from a barn like decor to a modern museum.

 

Curly Lamp by Fuz

Next up is the Curly Lamp by Fuz. The Curly Lamp is a recycled plastic translucent shade that you  wrap around a compact fluorescent bulb. It comes in two sizes- small and large with the small measuring 7.5″ x 12″  ($35) and the large measuring 10″ x 15.5″ ($45).  I think it is a great home office lamp.

 

Gloss Lamp by Pablo Designs

Lastly, this is the Gloss Lamp by Pablo Designs. The Gloss Lamp comes in both a floor lamp ($355)  and a table lamp ($310). It is constructed of twin polycarbonate shades with an aluminum base. The Gloss Lamps can be positioned to practically any angle and varying heights making them incredibly versatile for both ambient and direct light. The acrylic shades come in clear, blue, orange, and bronze and they use halogen lamps.

I am hereby declaring Thursdays as Lighting Thursdays!  So, Get Excited!

yxta cocina mexicana

The first piece of lighting we have today was sent to me by my sister. It is from yxta cocina mexicana in LA. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find any information on the fixture, but if and when I do, I will be sure to let you know. For now, lets just admire it.

Flower, by Property Furniture

Flower, by Property Furniture

 This second fixture is called Flower and it is by Property Furniture (propertyfurniture.com). Flower is 33″w x 39″h and is made of steel. It comes in unlimited colors including blackened steel, black metal, nickel, burnished bronze and any custom color you want. I love the shape of this fixture, and if done in the right color it could be used as a more feminine accent as well as a masculine inspired room.

Porcini, by Memake

Porcini, by Memake

Lastly, we have Porcini by Memake (memake.com.au). Unique and sustainable form the essence of these fixtures. Taking on the organic nature of the mushroom formed the basis for these handcrafted light fixtures. They are made from Tasmanian Oak, Australian beeswax and 100% pure wool, all of which are biodegradable and renewable. I could see these fixtures adding a sophisticated soft elegance in a muted color room, bringing natural and organic shapes inside.

Here are a couple unique lighting pieces which would brighten up any room…

Coral by Pallucco

Coral by Pallucco

 

This collection from Pallucco (pallucco.com) is called Coral.  The collection includes a table, floor, and suspended lamp. It is made with injected moulded polycarbonate and they use  fluorescent energy saving bulbs. The lights come in white, ivory, or black grey with either an orange or red branch used as the accent. These lamps would look great in a modern room, but could also add a unique contrast in a more traditional setting.

Pirce Suspension by Artemide

Pirce Suspension by Artemide

 

This suspended light is from Artemide (artemide.com) and is called the Pirce Suspension. The light is made from one continuous aluminum piece in a white finish which has been molded to create the spiral of the fixture. It is an indirect halogen light. I could see this lamp over a dining room table or as the focal point in a foyer. Its simplicity makes it perfect for multiple applications and styles.
