Do you like these lamps? No?
Well too bad because they're trending.
They're sometimes called 'Praying Mantis Lamps'. Does that make them any more appealing?
These light fixtures are designed by French sculptor Serge Mouille, and have been showing up EVERYWHERE. (Including the cover of January's House&Home, featured in a design by Mazen el-Abdallah.)
I must admit, I'm a fan. I think they're sleek, graphic, interesting, and really pop in an eclectic scheme with white walls (my favourite).
Naturally, they're expensive. Like $9000 expensive.
Knockoffs Imitations are available at around the $900 mark if that seems any more reasonable.
Are they worth it? Look for yourself!
There he is above, the man himself. What a looker. Was he seriously engaged in whatever he's holding here, or just posing intellectually?
You be the judge.
