In my experience dealing with cords is nothing short of a monumental hassle. One cord is too long, another too short, you trip over them and knock them loose… the list goes on. The bottom line is that cords = Hassle.
Apparently though, it’s not true with everyone because Swedish design group ‘Form Us With Love” has created a Cord Lamp. It embraces the cord and puts it on display (Why do I feel like I should be doing performance art as I say that?). Anyway, let’s get down to it. The lamp has a completely flexible “cord” that allows you to shape the way it stands. Its “cord” base, however, is sturdy so it wont topple over. It seems this is one (probably the only one) appliance it’s ok for the cord to show.
It come with an uncovered 60w bulb that really brings the whole piece together. You could purchase one from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for $150.

I don’t know anyone who can claim to be just “a Simpsons fan”, when it comes that family you’re either a fanatic or clueless. These two Simpsons themed USB toys are just the things to perk up your desk with the Springfield charm.
Brightly colored lamps that don’t completely look like the should be in an 8 year olds room can be hard to come by sometimes. This Happy Hour Lamp is great for any age, that is of course if you can handle the pretty yellows, oranges, blues and greens.
When I think calm and relaxing the first thing that pops into my head, like most of you I’m sure, is jellyfish. I could spend hours watching the majestic jellyfish float around in its underwater paradise, and if you buy the Jellyfish Mood Lamp, so could you.
When you’re trying to create an environment, whether it’s warm and inviting or calm and relaxing, lighting can make or break a setting. M+K Design (Maiko Watanabe and Koichi Tanaka) have a new lamp which is sure to make a statement in any room.
