Contemporary Table Lamp Goes Retro

 

If you're going modern or contemporary in your living room or entry, ceramic table lamps may be the first ones that come to mind, but we've found something that takes retro lamps in an entirely different direction.

First of all, we know about lamps around here, but I didn't have any idea that recycled aluminum could be handspun to make the body of a contemporary table lamp. But, that exactly what Babette Holland did with her Green Striped Gemini Table Lamp. Not only is the body spun aluminum but it's done in brown and green stripes. No two are exactly alike. The designer says they are reminiscent of 1950s drink tumblers. Topped with a gold silk shade, the Gemini Table Lamp is perfect for a modern interior.

Just imagine this lamp or a pair of them on a long sleek table in the foyer? Or, think about showing them off at either end of a cool green or chocolate velvet sofa. This is a retro look that's showing up again in today's rooms.

With the recent IAEA report suggesting that Iran is inching ever closer towards nuclear breakout capacity, potential upcoming negotiations with Iran carry an even greater urgency than usual. And there are compelling reasons to be optimistic (or at least less pessimistic than usual): both parties have something that the other wants, and Iran has a new president.

Braun won his 2012 appeal and had his 50-game suspension overturned then. Damon likened his friendship status with Rodriguez to that between Braun and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Braun accepted a 65-game ban last month in connection with Biogenesis. But their friendship soured when the Super Bowl-winning QB was critical of Braun, saying he wasn’t happy “being lied to.”
