5 Lights that Plug Right in yet Make a Huge Statement

Because who wants to call an electrician? Seriously, having your beautiful modern lighting sit in boxes while waiting for an electrician feels cruel.

Just under 8 feet tall this dramatically oversized floor lamp appears architectural. I’m in heaven. Looking for a smaller statement piece? How about this 28d lamp from Bocci?

The 28d Desk Lamp is anchored by a grey crochet memory cable that can be coiled up to provide a safe resting place for the light. It’s mood lighting at it best!
