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!

I love when a product serves two purposes…which is exactly why I love this light switch!

OFF- Light Switch Hook

OFF- Light Switch Hook

 

To encourage people to save more energy by turning off the lights in your house, the people at Amron Experimental bring you the OFF Light Switch Hook.  The switch is fully functioning and when it is in the off position, you can hang something on it!

 

Air Table Lamp by Ray Power for LZF

Air Table Lamp by Ray Power for LZF

This lamp is the Air Table Lamp by Ray Power for LZF Lamps. The lamp is made of Polywood and comes in two different table lamp sizes as well as a wall lamp. You can get any of the three fixtures in 8 different colors and it uses either incandescent or compact fluorescent bulbs. I love the fluid nature of this lamp. The organic shape is refreshing and the bright colors give it a whimsical style.

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.

It’s Lighting Thursday and I have some good fixtures today- A natural pendant, an antique inspired wall sconce, and a playful, colorful table lamp.

 

Woven Pendant, West Elm

Woven Pendant, West Elm

 

First up, the Woven Pendant from West Elm. This fixture is made from palm leaves that have been woven together in this unique pattern over a powder coated metal frame. The pattern adds textural interest while still maintaing a modern look. It uses a 60W bulb, and is $199.00. West Elm shows the fixture above a dining table, which I love, but I also think this fixture would be perfect in a reading nook above a chair.

Rex, from Remains Lighting Collection

Rex, from Remains Lighting Collection

 

I am a lover of antiques, and this wall sconce from Remains Lighting  just caught my eye. This particular piece is a remake of an antique. It is called Rex and is available in a number of finishes from brass to bronze to nickel to pewter to silver to gold, with either a mirror, black glass or white glass inset panel. Shown is the Satin Nickel with black glass inset panel. When I see this fixture, I see it in a sophisticated library or dining room designed with the 1930’s in mind.

PXL, by Fredrik Mattson

PXL, by Fredrik Mattson

 

Lastly, we have PXL, a table lamp by Fredrik Mattson, and produced by Zero. PXL is multicolored lacquered aluminum and steel and uses a 60W/E27 lamp. Would look great in a kids room, a modern daycare, a colorful home office. I could see this lamp in endless spaces.

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

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.
