In the same vein as the previously posted wooden t-rex desk lamp comes this posable wooden dog lamp available from Firebox. Will my dogs get jealous and destroy it? It wouldn’t be the first time they’ve destroyed a lamp; they’re animals.
Inspired by the iconic scene from the movie where E.T. makes Eliot’s bike fly, Firebox is selling this officially licensed E.T. Moon Lamp. It features a moveable silhouette of Eliot and E.T. against a lit full moon.
There’s nothing quite like telling stories around a campfire. But what if you’re inside? And what if you don’t have a fireplace like me? Enter Tasmanian artist Duncan Meerding’s beautifully crafted Cracked Log Lamps, salvaged pieces of wood that he’s outfitted with a lightbulb socket inside so they glow warmly through the cracks.
I’ve always wished I was better at woodworking but I can’t even make a livable birdhouse out of those easy-to-assemble kits. French woodworker Olivier Gomis is basically the opposite though, woodturning and crafting this absolutely incredible Lord of the Rings glowing One Ring lamp from maple and maple veneer over the course of 53 hours.
You know what my desk has been missing? A wooden dinosaur lamp. And, okay, something to shim the legs so they’re even and it doesn’t wobble when I type. I suppose you get what you pay for, and I found this desk by the curb of a neighbor’s home on trash day.
A NASA rocket-themed lava lamp: like jumping off your roof with a fitted mattress sheet for a parachute convinced you’ll be able to walk away unscathed, it just makes sense. Available from Firebox, the out-of-this-world lamp costs $49 and contains blue liquid and red lava.
Now I know what you’re thinking, and I couldn’t agree more: the wait is finally over. Pampshades (“P” from pan, bread in Japanese, and “ampshade” from lampshade) are lamps made from actual bread loaves. Did anybody else just lick make-believe crumbs from their fingers?
This is the life-size Uncle Fester Lamp created by Etsy seller ShrewdApe, based on Jackie Coogan’s Uncle Fester character from the 1964-1966 television series The Addams Family. Obviously, I very much need this staring at me from the dresser while I get ready for bed every night.
If you’re into the steampunk aesthetic, you know that it’s loaded with gears – lots and lots of gears. And if you like gears, you’ll love this wall lamp. The lamp uses a reflector light bulb and a precision-cut sheet of gloss black plexiglas to cast shadows onto the wall.
While you could decorate your table with a bowl of fruit (real or fake), I like the idea of this shiny golden pop art banana lamp so much more. It looks so good that it just might attract monkeys into your place, and they could make a mess of the joint.
Jellyfish are some of the most fascinating creatures on the planet. If you’ve ever looked at them up close at the aquarium, they look like they have nothing inside of them, yet somehow they’re able to swim around and eat plankton.
Full disclosure: as much as people loved Tetris, I sucked at the game. Every time the blocks started falling from the sky, I’d survive for about two minutes before I got overwhelmed, and they hit the top and my game was over.
If there’s one thing Minecraft fans can rely on, it’s those green and block Creepers, and their ability to blow up at the most inopportune moments. Well, now you can keep a Creeper right on your desktop to keep an eye on it, and I’m pretty sure it won’t blow up the place.
I don’t know how many times I’ve thought to myself, “This room could really use an exploding Death Star lamp.” Well, now I can make one thanks to Instructables contributor MariaK64. She built this exploding Death Star lamp, modded from an IKEA pendant lamp.
If you set your mind to it, you can make a lamp out of just about any material you can think of. While I was perusing the pages of Instructables, I came across this unique and eye-catching modern ceiling lamp, made almost entirely out of zip ties.
One of the more satisfying sights in the original Star Wars trilogy was watching Imperial TIE fighters get blown to smithereens by the Rebellion. But this awesome stained glass TIE fighter lamp is one that I’d never want to see in pieces.
