All the benefits of LED lighting, none of the style-cramping design. Appropriately named for an Edison-style light, the Alva LED Pendant Light uses a downward-firing LED to light the detailed "filaments" that are laser-etched in the optic crystal bulb, giving it a classic look. The 14.5 watt light delivers up to 290 lumens of illumination, can be adjusted from 3,000K to 2,200K depending on your needs and preferences, and is completely dimmable. Available in two finishes, it arrives with six feet of cuttable cloth cord.
Bright, tough, and a snap to install, Garage Series LED fixtures from Haiku Home are built to provide the mission-critical light your toughest spaces require. Each one produces more light than 16 60-watt incandescent bulbs, and its high-efficiency LEDs are rated to last for 150,000 hours, or more than 130 years of three-hour-a-day use. Its body is crafted from a single piece of anodized aluminum for added durability, and every fixture comes prewired for simple, single-person installation. Add in a motion sensor and it'll even turn on and off automatically. It comes with a seven-year warranty, and can be secured to the ceiling or hung on the wall with an adjustable mount.
Inspired by the silhouette of French aerialist Philippe Petit — he of Man on Wire fame — the Apparatus Highwire Light strikes a balancing act between art and functionality. It comes in both single and tandem models, and in both small and large varieties, with leather-wrapped "balance beams" measuring 35" and 64", respectively. Finished to order and assembled by hand in New York.
Yes, we know — technically, the candle is going to put off light on its own. But there's a big difference between the luminance of a votive and the light sources inside the Lumir C Candle-Powered LED Lamp. This highly-portable light uses the heat energy from small candles to power an LED light, giving you a reliable source of light no matter where you are. It's available in two varieties: Mood, which uses an array of four LEDs and a diffuser for ambient light, and Spot, which has a single, aimable LED for tasks like reading or working.
As we move towards smarter lighting solutions, it's becoming obvious that the lights of the future will let us pick their hue on-demand. The Fluxo Smart Lamp is a pendant-style light that lets you change both the color of your light and it's direction. Thanks to a ring-shaped cluster of LEDs, it can send its light in any direction you choose. It also learns your routines and adjusts the lighting based on your preferences, and turns itself on and off using built-in presence detection sensors. Which makes it not just smarter than a normal LED bulb, but better looking, too.
Far more useful than a simple night light, these Ellum Motion Sensing Lights can light your way in the dark without the need for an open outlet — and look great doing it. They use a pair of sensors to detect movement in the dark, turning on their powerful LEDs for 20 seconds when needed. Machined from solid domestic hardwood, they mount easily using 3M adhesive or screws, run on AA batteries, and are available in 22" and 6" variants with White Oak or Black Walnut bodies.
Our bodies used to stay in sync with nature, waking and sleeping in accordance with the sun. But we don't live outside anymore. The Ario Smart Lamp automatically adjusts both its color and direction throughout the day, mimicking natural light to help restore your circadian rhythm and improve both your health and productivity. It uses a Wi-Fi connection to choose optimal lighting based on the day, season, and local weather patterns, while also adjusting to your own personalized schedule, and its LEDs ensure that it will last for years to come.
Finding an ideal table lamp normally comes down to two things: its looks, and its light placement. The Normann Copenhagen Acrobat Lamp does well on both counts. Created by French designer Marc Venot, it uses a magnetic connection to the base to let you place the light where you want it, from a downward-facing ambient pose to a more upright, direct stance. Its minimal design is both passive and curious, and it's available in four different shades to match your decor.
Bringing to mind antler lights, tree boughs, and other rustic lighting and decorations, the Branch Chandelier is a clean alternative for minimalist decors. With as many as 28 lighting elements, the Margus Triibmann design uses LED technology, and is made from aluminum with a powder coat finish and a galvanized steel support. In addition, the individual elements are posable, making this a more versatile solution than your standard chandelier.
No artificial lighting can compete with the actual sun. That's why the Lucy Sunlight Bender doesn't create light. Instead, it uses an adaptive mirror and a series of intelligent sensors to track the sun throughout the day, keeping it focused on the same spot — just like a lamp. And since it's always in the sun, it can run solely off solar power, setting you free from the constraints of your home's existing wiring.
Exposed filament, Edison-style bulbs have been a popular choice with architects and interior designers for some time now. The Bare Light extends this design trend to the next most logical place: the light socket itself. Suspended by a cloth cord, this fixture features a glass socket that exposes the light's inner workings and allows refracted light to illuminate the space above. Crafted by expert glass blowers in Los Angeles; bulb not included.
It may be inspired by the sea, but the Bollard Oil Lamp is plenty fit for use on land. It's named after the tie-off posts on docks, and its teak base shares their stout characteristics. The vented stainless steel lid is joined to the integrated handle, the glass jar is ribbed to create a more interesting light pattern than you'd see from a typical hurricane, and the sleek design is meant to blend in to nearly any environment, whether it be placed on the ground, a tabletop, or suspended in the air. Made in Thailand, it burns readily-available lamp oil.
You need light. You want music. Unfortunately, your space only has a solitary light fitting. Not to worry — the Sony LED Light Bulb Speaker can take care of both. As the name says, this multi-function gadget fits into the same fittings as ordinary bulbs, providing up to 360-lumens of app-controlled lighting, as well as an integrated 2 Watt speaker system that's ideal for filling small spaces. It connects with your phone via Bluetooth, and also has a remote that can be paired over NFC, but as with many gadgets this unusual, there's no word yet on a US release.
Combining magnetic levitation with wireless power transmission tech dating back to Nikola Tesla, the Flyte Levitating Light is modern day magic masquerading as illumination. Its shatterproof LED bulb floats and rotates slowly in the air above a sustainably-sourced wood base, which plugs into a standard power outlet and lets you turn the light on and off with a single touch. As an added bonus, the base doubles as a wireless charging station, so it serves a purpose even when you don't need the light on.
Take control of your home's lighting with the Smfx Smart Bulb. Available with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connectivity, this LED-based bulb lets you adjust the brightness, color, or power status right from your iOS or Android device.

Don't bother looking for the power button on the Brick Lamp. You won't find one. This simple LED lighting tool is designed to turn on whenever you pick it up and to rest on either of its four outer wides, letting you direct the light where you need it. It's powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts for up to 5 hours and recharges via USB, and comes in a variety of finishes, including wood, cast concrete, and anodized aluminum.
Sporting a design from Konstantin Grcic, the May Day Utlity Light is just as handy as the utility lights you can buy at the local hardware store. It just looks a lot better. It's crafted from injection-molded opaline polypropylene, feature a hooked handle that doubles as a cord winder, takes standard 60 Watt A19 bulbs, and sports a waterproof push button power switch built into the shade for easy use. Made in Italy and available in black or orange.
Just one light can change the entire mood of a room. Especially if it's the Buster & Punch Heavy Metal Light. It's made from solid metal — your choice of steel, smoked bronze, or rose copper — and hangs down from its attached matt black rubber cord. For best results, pair with a Buster Bulb, which combines designer looks with LED efficiency, and is likewise available in three distinct styles.
Bring custom lighting with you wherever you roam with the Philips Hue Go. Powered by a rechargeable battery that lasts at least three hours away from its base, this portable wireless light offers the ability to display over 16 million color options, a number of pre-programmed light effects, and compatibility with existing Hue hardware and over 300 third-party apps.

Add a light to your wall without running wires with the Wald Plug Lamp. This self-contained lighting solution pairs either Ohio-sourced White Ash or locally-sourced American Walnut with an anodized aluminum support in either bluish gray or dark olive. The wood is hand finished in multiple coats of wax or oil for protection, it accepts most medium-based bulbs, and the plug itself is easily adjustable to support both traditional and upside-down outlets. Available in 24" and 36" varieties.
All LED bulbs are "smart" in terms of energy savings and life span, but few can rival the features offered by the Misfit Bolt Smart Bulb. It provides a warm white light out of the box, and using proprietary color-mixing technology offers millions of color combinations that shine evenly through the light-diffusing glass dome. The aluminum body that doubles as a heat sink, it's compatible with standard sockets, and it can work entirely on its own — no hub required. You can control it from the Misfit Home app or using a Logitech Harmony Home remote, and it'll even work in conjunction with the company's Shine, Flash, and Beddit sensors to help wake you up at the appropriate time.
With a slim design and smart features, the Aerelight deserves a spot on your desk or nightstand. It's built using sustainable materials, most notably an energy-efficient OLED panel that puts out up to 1,000 lux of warm natural light yet uses less energy than traditional light sources. The anodized aluminum frame serves as a touch control for power and dimming, and a built-in wireless charging pad will keep your Qi-compatible devices juiced up with nary a cord in sight. Available in black, red, and silver.
Moving a light switch in the home, or setting up a timer for outdoor lights or holiday decorations to switch on or off should be easier, and less expensive. Those issues were the motivation behind the Avi-On Switch, the world's first wireless, movable light switch. Put the switch anywhere in your home, pair it with Bluetooth on your smartphone and set up your entire home in minutes. With no screws, wires or paint required, along with a 100ft range, 3 year battery life and sleek design — the Avi-On Switch is simplifying home lighting one switch at a time.
For most, it's easy to take light for granted, until that light goes out. That's where the WakaWaka Solar Lamp comes in, shining bright when all else fails. This personal solar lamp is sleek and simple, with no need to connect to any wires thanks to the solar replenished, long lasting, rechargeable batteries. A full battery provides no less than 16 hours of reading light on less than a full day of sunlight — making it ideal for your next camping trip, a weekend at the cabin, or when your power goes out.
Yes, candles and flashlights can provide light during an emergency — but candles can be fire hazards, and flashlights require you to make sure their batteries are fresh. The Eton Blackout Buddy H2O eliminates both these problems by providing lighting using nothing but water. Thanks to a Magnesium-oxide battery module, this compact light can run for up to 72 hours just by placing it in a small cup of water and adding a little more liquid once a day. And if you can't find water during an emergency, well, odds are you have bigger problems than a lack of lighting.
Smart light bulbs aren't exactly new, but nearly all require your input to get the most out of them. Which makes the Stack Alba Responsive Lightbulb different. This intelligent LED lighting system uses integrated ambient light sensors to automatically maintain lighting levels without wasting energy and adjust the color temperature to match the situation — like cool light during the day for productivity, and warm light during the evening for relaxation. Motion sensors know to turn off the lights when you're not around, and the bulbs also communicate with an app to sync with your alarm and wake you up gently. Most importantly, it learns from your input, so as time goes on, it just works — giving you one less thing to fool with.
You don't need to have an affinity for old-school switches and knobs to appreciate these Buster & Punch Light Switches, but it certainly doesn't hurt. Made from solid Marine Grade Steel, this range of switches and dimmers features diamond-cut knurling on the controls themselves for a fantastic, hefty feel, as well as signature oversized screws that only help add to the industrial feel. Available in brass, steel, bronze, black, white, and several combinations thereof.
Why spend a fortune on smart light bulbs when the ones you have work just fine? That's the idea behind Emberlight. This intelligent lighting accessory sits between a bulb and its socket, giving you the ability to control any dimmable bulb right from your phone over Wi-Fi. And while this gives you the ability to control multiple lights with a single touch, map out preset lighting "moods", and have the lights turn on based on your proximity to home, each unit also sports Bluetooth LE, giving it the ability to turn lights on or off as you enter or exit a room. Now that's smart.
If you need even, direct light on a fixed rectangular space — whether it's a workbench, a kitchen island, or a conference table — then you need Jake Dyson Ariel Lights. These LED suspension lights use special heat tube technology and advanced optics to direct light to a focused area while producing minimal heat, letting you work comfortably with minimal shadows. Able to be adjusted to perfectly fit whatever space you want lit, these lights help eliminate glare while evenly lighting whatever you're working on. And, because of its unique engineering originally developed for use in satellites, the LEDS in these lights can last for as long as 13 years of continuous use.
