All of us know that light plays one of the main roles in the life of any living creature. Plants can’t grow and make oxygen without light, we wouldn’t have fruits and vegetables without light, we wouldn’t be able to read or, obviously, see anything without light. Having electricity to produce some light, it is crucial for the source of light, which in our case is table lamps, to fit harmonically into our interior. Here are the top 5 of some unusual table lamps, judged by the same criteria:
4) Ability to fit into any interior
5 unusual table lamps
№5: Table lamps by Maurizio Lamponi Leopardi
This designer from Milan came up with an idea to make lamps out of everything that is within reach of his hand. It could be headlights, vases, mixer taps or even razor blades. More suitable for offices rather than flats and houses.
Pluses: I doubt you’ll find same lamps among your friends and family due to its fun and original design
Minuses: A too crude design for most apartments; definitely will not fit into every interior; it’s irregular shape will make it hard to clean, change light bulbs or pack into a box/bag; prices vary from $1750-$2000
№ 4: The Olab Lamp by Grégoire De Lafforest
A simple lamp that looks like a little balloon. Light by weight and color, it will look funny (in a good way) in your room
Pluses: nothing unnecessary in the design; will give you a quite large amount because of its half-transparency
Minuses: a too simple design, the blue wire could have been in a different color (this way it looks like some model for a school science project)
№ 3: Animal Lamps by Abigale Ahern
A great choice for adding something bohemian to your room and making every evening a pleasant one with your little illuminating pets.
Pluses: due to a variety of sizes, colors and heights, these lamps will most perfectly fit everywhere;
Minuses: as we can see on the photos, the lampshade on these lamps are tiny, thus reducing the amount of light; may be a bit too heavy for a table lamp
№ 2: LEGO Lamps by Sean Kenney и Jung Ah Kim
Try and remember your happy childhood with these unusual table lamps with a LEGO base.
Pluses: a large and white lampshade illuminates a good amount of light; because of the availability of different colors, these lamps can fit almost in any room (for example, the brighter ones – in children’s rooms, the more neutral ones – in master bedrooms)
Minuses: might seem like a cheap alternative for your friends and family
№ 1: Exotic Pumpkin Table Lamps by the “Calabarte” company
These extremely beautiful lamps are made from selected pumpkins from Senegal. The designers first dry thoroughly the skin of the pumpkin then make accurate African-style carvings.
Pluses: in spite of the small size, the room is lightened at a maximum level; a large choice of different patterns; simply beautiful illumination; because of the small size and neutral brown colors will look good in any interior
Minuses: haven’t found any (except if you’re a racist or have some sort of allergy to pumpkins)
