The Maple Edison Lamp strips the lighting process back to basics. The lamp consists of an original Edison 40W Filament bulb, supported by a clean maple base. I find Edison bulbs very stunning and aesthetically pleasing on their own and the minimalist design of this product allows it to shine – pun absolutely intended. I’m also very fond of the flip switch, which are increasingly rare these days. They bring back memories of near electrocution from the Victorian building where I went to school. Fond times. The design is so simple that it almost looks like an experiment being carried out in a Science class. In an industrial setting, it’d be the perfect form of lighting.

With modern décor, classic chandeliers have a tendency to look out of place. It is difficult to compliment the ornate sophistication which they ooze against a minimal backdrop. This Urban Hanging Chandelier by Uncovet bridges this gap, warmly welcoming the chandelier into the 21st century. The fixture consists of multiple light bulbs which are hung from reclaimed plywood. The plywood itself is hung from the ceiling with thick metal chains. The result is an industrialised light fixture that would look great in an urban inspired room. The product is enhanced further with the light bulbs being an array of shapes and sizes. This makes the item visually more appealing and will also create wonderful effects with light. The ambitious task of tackling a classic has been pulled off perfectly with this modern take on the chandelier.
