I am pretty sure I am way behind the times on this one, but this lamp is so cool! It was in the store when I showed up today and was informed that it's been around for a while. I have never seen a lamp so simple and innovative. It completely challenges what we know as a lamp while still having the basic function of a lamp, to light. Beautiful and a great floor highlight piece.
