Yes, lighting is important. Yes, lighting is functional. But it can also operate as a statement piece. Whether buying for children or for yourself, these two playful lighting options deserve your consideration.
Firstly, who doesn’t like giraffes? Check out this amazing lamp by one of my fave designers, Jonathan Adler. You’ll probably see more of his gorgeous ceramics on our blog, and I always think of his beautiful items as heirloom pieces – stylish, unique and never out of style. His wonderful work here is clear – a quirky lamp with real character, but in a neutral tone to complement any room. It’s a subtle statement – you almost don’t notice the little giraffe’s head poking out the top, like an inside joke.
If you’re less of a subtle shopper, how amazing are these balloon lights by John Moncrieff, which come as wall lights or ceiling lights. I think they look amazing in group and would be so wonderful in a nursery or child’s bedroom. Or my office – that’s what I want them for.
