Creative animal-inspired lamps by Atelier Abigail Ahern

Today we came across a very interesting and fun collection of lamps. It’s a series of table lamps designed by Atelier Abigail Ahern and it includes four different models. It’s an animal-inspired collection and it features creative replicas of a poodle, a greyhound, a bulldog and a pelican. The materials used for the collection didn’t allow the designers to create exact replicas of the living animals so they are not exactly lifelike but they’re very close.

The collection is made in England using grazed earthenware. The lampshades are made of silk and they complement beautifully the rest of the design. Because the base is so elaborate, the shade had to be simple. However, a certain classic style was required for that as well. The silk and delicate lamp shades from the Parisian Atelier are perfect for these lovely animal-inspired base structures. Together they form a beautiful combination both in terms of texture and color.

Tulip Bathroom Lamp by Vibia

Lighting is important for any room, but I think it is most important in the bathroom.  That is explained by the fact that you need some stronger lighting in this room because you need to shave your face if you are a man and to apply make-up if you are a woman. And if the lighting is improper than you will look funny. That is why usually bathrooms have wall mounted lamps instead of ceiling hanging lamps. So this Tulip Bathroom Lamp by Vibia is just perfect for any bathroom.. It is cool and has a nice and simple design and it works with a 60 Watt  light bulb.

The lamp is made of polished chrome and a hand blown cased opal white glass diffuser. This makes the light generates by it be strong, but diffuse and not bad for the eyes, pleasant and the whole atmosphere pretty nice. The lamp is perfect for the bathroom wall and is the wonderful work of the designers Alberto Lievore & Jannette Altherr . However, you can choose the version for table which is perfect for your bedroom or maybe the one in suspension that is perfect for the living room. You can also choose it to have lacquered white metal finish. Whatever model you decide to purchase,  it is available for $355.02.

Autumn touch with the Etched Fern Mercury Glass Table Lamp

Made out of mercury glass and etched by hand, the Mercury Glass Table Lamp is the perfect modern object to accessorize your bedroom or living room. Traditional lamps looking like this were made shaping molten glass into the wanted form and then then dressed in antique silver. The advantage of this item is that the mercury glass has the same luster as silver but it is easier to clean.

The lamp can be the perfect gift for autumn lovers, bringing a warm atmosphere into the room. The etched leafs look like grain and symbolizes wealth and prosperity. It can be offered along with a matching painting or photography frames, impressing the loved ones with your good taste. You can keep it to yourself and put it on the corner table for light while reading, on the desk of your home office, on the dresser near the bed or on any other surface, offering you smooth lightning in warm colors. Can be also used as a night lamp.

Mod Urn Table Lamp

Urns are supposed to be used for storing the ashes of someone in your family or of a friend. Or at least this is the general belief now. But some time ago, in the ancient times, Greeks used urns  as decorative objects and even vases. No wonder some people thought that urns would look just fine as base for a table lamp. And they were right. If you take a look at this nice Mod Urn Table Lamp from Shades of Light you will see just how beautiful and delicate it is.

The base of this lamp is made of ceramics and then it is painted in different colours that make it interesting and able to match the general colour of the room: Provincial Blue, Vintage Green, Vintage White, Gray or Orange. The most interesting feature is that you can change the lamp shade according to your taste and choose one with a classic or modern pattern. But no matter what colour you may choose, you will certainly love to have this lamp on your desk. It brings a bit of the past (the urn shape) and mixes it with a bit of the future (the geometrical modern design lamp shade), obtaining an incredibly nice-looking product. The lamp can be bought for  $149.

The Fireworks from all over the world that light up the sky

Fireworks are used to mark various events. They are used to celebrate the days of a city, a concert, a party of any kind and especially to mark the beginning of a new year. The same thing happened this year too when people all over the world tried to say good- bye 2011 and welcome 2012 in their original way using the fireworks. A firework show means a lot of time for preparations, much equipment and the involvement of many people who try to create a spectacular event.

The diversity of colors and lights, the way they are displayed lighting up the sky represent the important issues that attract the people’s eyes upon them. People are so enthusiastic about these shows and the magic of sparkles that enchant their views can help them hope to some better moments for their lives.

Sabrina – Accent Lamp from Robert Abbey

Usually table lamps, especially the ones that are meant to be used in the bedroom, on the bedside table, are kind of neutral in tones and styles. I mean they can easily be used by both men and women and they do not show any particular features that might suggest they should be used or preferred by either gender. That happens because usually the bedroom is meant for both persons, for a couple and they are both supposed to feel comfortable there. But sometimes some women are single or just alone and want to express their femininity in their bedroom, too. So they want to choose feminine objects to surround them and want class and style. This Sabrina – Accent Lamp from Robert Abbey is perfect for any woman’s bedroom.

It is so delicate and beautiful that you will love it on the spot. It actually is a normal looking lamp with a normal ceramic rounded body, but the small and delicate and detailed row of flowers that goes up the body lamp in a winding spiral makes the difference. The white porcelain is the perfect choice, as it underlines the glamour and purity of the design and turns the lamp into a beautiful decorative accessory. The shade is made of translucent white Mont Blanc parchment and covers a 60 W light bulb that provides enough light for the room. You can purchase the item for just $151.80.
