House-Lamps: Little House on the Table
October 29th, 2012
Every house needs lamps, and every lamp needs a home. A pretty sound statement, but I bet you’ll be surprised to hear that someone took this statement literally. Hence, the House-Lamp came to be.
What more can I say that the pictures don’t? Designed by Lauren Daley, House-Lamps are basically lamps shaped like houses. They also come optional task lights beside them to provide light, but they can stand alone as an accent piece too.
House-Lamps playfully draw on classic house forms and integrate the warmth of light to create a lamp like no other. Seeing a House-Lamp can remind one of homes once dwelled in, fond memories shared, and dreams to come.
House-Lamps are currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $250(USD) will get you one of the lighted houses, and $275 will get you the version with the task lamp. Or if you just like the houses and want to support the project, a $25 pledge will get you an (unlighted) wooden kit that you can assemble yourself.
