Best New Lamps and Lights
What unites these four lamps? They all had us charmed at first sight.
Some of these lamps channel the old (the Foscarini Spokes lamp is inspired by antique lanterns; West Elm’s chanedelier is an Art-Deco throwback); others are cutting edge (think touch-dimming and wireless charging. But one thing they have in common: they’re making our editors swoon.
4 New Lamps We Love
The humble Curio Design Structo table lamp ($300) pairs a simple structure with high-tech features like touch-dimming controls and a slew of fun colours: we love the sunshine yellow. Designhouse, Vancouver, designhouse.ca
Antique Chinese lanterns, aviaries and bicycle wheels inspired the design of the Foscarini Spokes lamp ($2,062), crafted from varnished steel and aluminum. Gabriel Ross, Victoria, grshop.com; Lightform, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton, lightform.ca
Warning: this lamp’s got some serious curves. The Pelle Gooseneck chandelier ($799) is a throwback made with salt-blasted glass globes that fits right in to modern spaces, too. West Elm, Vancouver and Calgary, westelm.ca
Design blogs have been buzzing about it for months, and it’s finally here: Ikea leads the way to the future with their innovative line of wireless charging furniture. The Riggad work lamp ($70) lights your workspace while juicing up your phone with its base. Ikea, across the West, ikea.com
