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.
Stick it where the sun doesn't shine. The Garage Light by Big Ass Light combines industrial-strength construction with top-of-the-line LEDs to create a light worthy of the most masculine of spaces. Hit it with a hammer; whack it with a golf club; hell, run over it with your truck. This light can handle whatever you dish out. The Garage Light is rated for 150,000 hours (that's over 70 years of six-hour-a-day use). It produces more light than fifteen 60-watt incandescent bulbs, so it can light up the darkest corners of your garage, and it'll make your toys look amazing. It even turns on and off automatically with an optional motion sensor. Consider this the last garage light you'll ever buy.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
