Few things can get people to pause and look up from their plates/bowls/highball glasses when sitting at the dining room table; we'll bet that these gorgeous, cloud-like bubble lamps are an exception. Do you need another thing in the dining room, save something to sit on and someplace to put the casserole dish, besides this bit of light-up art? No.
Mid-century smart shop Modernica is throwing a George Nelson Bubble Lamp Sale on Saturday, August 22nd from 10AM-Noon (note that this is at the Modernica warehouse). The striking shades are half off. Will you score a bubble lamp like one used on one of your favorite shows? "Heroes," perhaps? Or "House"? The pieces on sale include lamps that have been rented to television series or used for props. There are also some catalog models, too. Fancy.
This is not the big-big warehouse sale, like Modernica held last month. It's definitely lamp-focused, and it's definitely for two hours only. So move that dining room around, in preparation, and then dawdle no more. 2118 E. Seventh Place, Los Angeles
