A Sconce-Like Lamp That's Perfect for Renters


Ah, the benefits of well-placed wall sconces: they can add more intimate ambient illumination than overhead lighting and take up less space than floor or table lamps. For renters, however, punching holes in walls and rewiring isn't exactly an option. Enter the Wald plug lamp by Feltmark, a Los Angeles–based design studio.

Designed and made by the Los Angeles studio Feltmark, the Wald plug lamp occupies a middle ground between floor lamp...
The piece is made from bent aluminum and white oak or walnut.
The lamp plugs directly into a wall outlet so there isn't a messy tangle of cords lying around.
Wald comes in two lengths: 24 inches ($139) and 136 inches ($159). For more info, visit
