While most people find self-expression in artwork or furniture pieces, there are those that dream of finding the perfect lighting apparatus - their crown center-pièce de résistance. If you’re one of those (awesome) individuals, then these lamps from Artecnica were made for you.
Garland Brass + Table Lamp Stand
This whimsical little number reflects its namesake well with a splash of gold and a design reminiscent of snowflakes. Even better, it allows the owner to play designer by wrapping the garland around the bulb itself. $170.
If you want to take the plunge into the depths of awesome décor, this hanging piece might just do the trick. Draped in feathers that emit slivers of light, it resembles the famed wings of Icarus more than a traditional lamp. $84.
Creating a tactile experience out of lighting a room, this innovative lamp looks like a cross between a tree and a multitude of four-walled cells. The light itself is enclosed within a metal core inside the structure. $290.
Garland Light (Silver)
Similar to the Garland Lamp, the Garland Light looks more like a white Christmas than a rockin New Year. This hanging light can be redesigned and changed whenever the mood strikes, and obviously serves as a conversation piece no matter where its placed. $75.
Second Shadow Light
Fully assembled upon delivery, this forest-scene-floral-garden pattern only appears when the light is on, and returns to normal single-hue once switched off. $95.
Book of Lights
Now this is just plain mind-blowing. The uniquely designed Book of Lights is a tabletop lamp hidden in a seemingly ordinary book. Flip it open when its time to read and snap, everything is illuminated. $46.
