Arise Floor Lamp

Arise Floor Lamp

Niagara, simplified and domesticated. The Arise Floor Lamp reminds us of the infamously glowing waterfall -- the more placid Canadian side.

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
