Lighting from Bond & Bowery and Swank Lighting

I am dedicating today's post to lighting from two fabulous
sources: Bond & Bowery and Swank Lighting. The quartz
lamps above mounted on a lucite base are gorgeous! Available
from Bond and Bowery.

The quartz above reminds me of a new line of lamps that
Swank Lighting is coming out with. The above lamps are
made of Tangerine Calcite paired with lucite. For all of you
lovers of stone and natural materials out there, this lamp
is a great lamp that incorporates color and natural materials.

I Really loved this pair of Japanese styled lamps from
Bond and Bowery. They are only $475 for the pair!
From the dealer Verdigris on Bond and Bowery.

This Buddha lamp would really be a statement
on top of a console, entry way, or dresser!

This is a bit different than my other picks, but I've
always loved sillhouettes and I thought it was neat
that these sconces incorporated them.

Can you believe the light that shines through these lamps?
Swank Lighting specializes in Murano glass lamps. I must
say that I have an addiction to collecting photos of them
because I can't afford to collect them. Swank Lighting
just joined Bond and Bowery as a dealers so their lamps
are available there as well as their own site.

I liked the coloring of the slate blue Murano Lamp - sort of
reminds of me a beautiful storm. I thought the base of the
deep red lamps had a unique shape to them.

Swank Lighting is partnering up with a glass blowing artist
named Joe Cariati to produce a line of "modern" or "new"
murano styled glass lamps. They look stunning!

From Apple Reds above to Sky Blues and mauves.

Brilliant greens and energetic oranges, there's no
limit to the colours they can make or design.

This pair of lamps are available directly from
the Swank Lighting website and very unique.
The lamps are in a dress form shape - how fun
and chic!

For turquoise lovers, never fear for there are choices.

I couldn't resist these candy striped lamps. The colors and designs
are just amazing and I love that they were paired with chrome-like
bases for a modern style.

Candy colors indeed in Blood Red and magenta.

I leave you with the diva of their store...A hot pink pair of
Murano loamps with a lucite base cut like a jewel... WOW.

Hope you enjoyed all of the colors and
shapes of the lamps above.

Great resources, thanks! BTW, I actually bought one of those Murano glass (Marbro) lamps at a Goodwill for $20, once. The stuff people give away!

Look at those colors! These lamps would be such a great way to punch up an otherwise neutral color scheme. Thanks for sharing!
