The perfect lamp can be elusive. We've fallen in love with pendant lamps while searching for floor lamps, or been smitten by a sconce when what we really needed was a task light. For example: Those Tord Boontje garland pendants? We love them, but just don't have a place to hang them. Now that problem is solved! Artecnica is offering a lamp stand that works with several of their shade designs including Garland and Daedelus. The stand is available in polished brass or silver satin. Just tap the base to turn the lamp on, brighten it, or shut it down. The lamp stand, with either shade, is $165 at Velocity Art & Design.
