It also caught our eye because of the resemblance it bears to local lighting designer Pablo's (of Pablo Designs) Cortina and Ventana lamps. It uses the same technique -- a transparent fabric diffuser -- to soften the light source and spread the glow.
Unlike Pablo's lovely lamps though, Arise is being marketed as a green light fixture, featuring mostly recycled and/or recyclable materials and energy-saving halogen bulbs. And a further considerate detail: it has a clear cord.
Arise is available in four sizes (from $264.26 to $577.86) at EcoLights.com.
