Light Switch Table Lamp


When you look at this lamp you think, "that's not right."

Then you look a little more and realize what's wrong.

Gaining access to the ability to see things in another light is a task well worth the effort of a lifetime.

I guess that's why objects such as this lamp appeal to me: they suggest a world tipped on its side, askew, things not quite what they seem or are.

Adding piquancy is the fact that the switch is an adjustable Leviton illuminated dimmer toggle switch, so you can adjust ever so precisely the level of light as opposed to the standard three wattage options offered by a store–bought three–way switch.

Bonus: no need for a three–way bulb: a standard 60W–75W bulb will suffice.

Chrome–finished base; 14"–diameter frosted glass shade.


$170 here (bulb not included).
