The Space-Saving Lamp
Essentially a floor lamp that doesn't touch the floor, this deconstructed light plugs directly into an outlet. Which means the simple, lightweight lamp is perfect for small spaces or those who prefer a more minimal look. Extending just four inches from the wall, it's crafted from color-anodized aluminum and is finished with an easy to operate dimmer switch.

LED Edison Bulbs
Those exposed-filament Edison bulbs are now pretty much a standard in any stylish interior—from shops and restaurants to well-equipped bachelor pads. The only downside? They get hot, use a heap of energy and burnout pretty quickly. These new LED bulbs give all the vintage atmosphere, but they use just 3.5 watts and last 15,000 hours (which results in about $93 worth of savings over the life of the bulb).
