Pros: Is it a Goomba from Super Mario Bros.? A strange breed of mushroom? Castiglioni’s striking 1967 marble, glass, and metal design is a surefire conversation starter.
It’s versatile: Focused light emanates below, while the holes in its top disperse a gentle glow.
Cons: The Snoopy's finicky touch-sensitive three-way dimmer is difficult to master. When we tried to dim the light, a gentle tap often sent us into the dark. Our frustrations were enough to warrant a Clapper.
Spring has officially arrived. While there's more natural light now to illuminate your days late into the evening, when the sun does go down you'll no doubt need to set the mood. The gentle glow from the Birds + Bees table lamp from Brooklyn-based designer Lindsey Adelman will ensure you remain turned on all night long.
