 Pendant Lights-De Wulff  Table Lamps-Aram Goldtone-Rock-Table-Lamp

A Unique Armadillo: Los Angeles designer James de Wulf recently introduced two hanging fixtures: the Armadillo pendant and the Armadillo chandelier. Both are made from solid brass and have slats that direct the light downward and interlock to hide the light source. “I wanted something with organic proportions that didn’t follow a stiff mathematical pattern,” de Wulf explains. “These are two very eye-catching pieces that will age beautifully.” The pendant measures 7” x 7” x 19” and the chandelier is 14” x 14” x 38”.  www.jamesdwulf.com

Sculptural Statement: The 26.25”-high Meteorite table lamp in a Black Nickelplate finish is one of the new table lamps by American designer Michael Aram that celebrate the artist’s appreciation for the intricacies found in nature. Drawing from his background as a sculptor, each piece is a hand-crafted interpretation of natural life.  The lighting collection – initially comprised of 15 pieces – debuted this fall. Michael Aram. www.michaelaram.com
