Get Your Glow On

They call it a “desk” lamp, but this retro ball of fun could illuminate most any space in your home. If your place is contemporary, modern or transitional, here’s a few niches where we think decorative lamps would look absolutely fab:

  • Take two and let them highlight the top of your buffet, credenza, fireplace mantel or as bedside table lamps.
  • Put one next to your favorite reading chair—caution you may not be able to take your eyes off it.
  • Stick one on a table in your entry way to welcome visitors.
  • Set one on your desk. (OK, we gave in on this one.)

Holtkoetter Glow Desk LampThe Glow Lamp’s dual controls make it easy to enjoy several lighting levels. Not only does it have a light on top, the globe base down below glows too. It’s all about warm light, white lines and polished brass accents.  It also has an interesting back story: It was created by Franz Holtkoetter’s lighting company who is famous for their German “light machines.” Their motto: “Licht machen” or to make light.

This lamp has such a way about it; you can design a whole room around it. Talk about found objects! Here’s what we would do if we were you…pair it with the hot pink Seven Sofa from designer Michiel van der Kely, the Bertram Rectangle coffee table by Luxo Interiors, and this jazzy, black and white hand-knotted rug from Himalayan Collection.

Now you’re glowing!

I like the idea of using them in pairs, I’m thinking of trying them on a sofa table as you enter my family room. I hate looking at the back of the couch, so this should jazz it up!
