Whimsical Lighting from Pal + Smith
Pal + Smith design principal Melissa Palazzo lends a hand of whimsy and casual elegance to their newest round of lighting designs. I really admire her ability to instill such creativity and bravado into a standard lighting form. The Ming and Chinois lamps above feature dramatic Chinese ginger jar bases in shades of citrus or orange, while the Lola and Lotus designs below showcase original carved white resin bases. I always enjoy a lamp that does not take itself too seriously, and Pal + Smith has created fun, dynamic lighting designs that could work in a multitude of settings.
