light up your life

{top lamp: the horizontal bands of three colors are rich and luxurious on the tall striped cylinder lamp. a great focus for any room, it has a retro feel but is just as comfortable in any contemporary environment.
lower lamp: the stork has delivered an illuminating dividend, the baby anne ~ a silk shade and a hand-spun aluminum base with a copper-fade finish make up only one combination among multiple finish choices. designed & sold at babette holand. }

{barbara barry has expanded her prolific licensing empire. her first design for this company, the lotus table lamp stands 33 inches high on a white plaster round base with a hard-backed silk shade. offered at visual comfort. }
{nature meets artifice with the splitlog faux-bois sconce. also available as a pendant, its semicylindrical diffuser is digitally printed using a cool new process that embeds the image within the surface of the acrylic material. choose from five different wood patterns: sepia bark, fence, knot, mossy bark, and woodgrain. designed & crafted by cp lighting.}

{light and carbon aren't just the building blocks of life, but of this hanging lamp, as well. thin sheets of carbon fiber {or, alternatively, white synthetic resin} slot together to create the elegantly scalloped multi-tier shade by karboxx. also offered in table and floor lamp versions. found on lapere inc. }

{inspired by a collaboration with wire sculptor rodger stevens, orrchadia is a delicate mobile of light offered by mmckenna. hung with insulated wire, its 16 miniature incandescents—each the size of a grain of rice—are suspended within ring-shape printed circuit boards ~ here three mobiles are shown}

{in a word: glamorous. the tresor suspension lamp by terzani is finished in silver or gold leaf and holds hundreds of scattering metal "coins" to form nine discs arranged like latitudinal slices of a globe. all reflect a worldly light from nine halogen bulbs or a single vertical fluorescent tube}

I love the black lamp from Karboxx,

do you know if there is a showroom where I can see it?
