Have you noticed that many of today’s top lamps and pendant lights feature a minimalist industrial presentation of one bulb (and little else)? For example this Lens Floor Lamp from West Elm is inspired by factory lighting. A glass shade and a steel base give this piece understated style power.
British designer Ilse Crawford describes the w084t2 as a sturdy friend who is unpretentious and always there. Its design has an honest character and one can imagine this light offering inspiration during long working days and nights.
It was Nate Berkus who said “I hate sets. I’ve always hated sets. I think that if you have a dining room set break it up!” Hate might be a touch too strong a word but often dining room sets do indeed breed monotony and boredom.
What happens when more than one bulb is contained within one large form?! Sleek modern magic. These Cortina Floor Lamps from Room & Board feature cast iron bases and frosted glass diffusers. Designed by Pablo Pardo and available in three sizes Cortina is also dimmable.
