Cool modern lighting is a tough thing to source, because many online lighting shops are HUGE and unedited, and many of the modern furniture stores have only a small selection. I stumbled upon GNR8 a few years ago and now often check it to see what's new, cool and edgy in home lighting. Their categories? "Interactive", "Lit Furniture", "Wall" and "Lamps."
GNR8 is run by a mysterious crew up in Quebec, Canada (there's no "about" page) and they used to have a really cool blog as well (but they stopped in 2006), but their style reflects a blend of Euro/American sensibilities and they aren't scared of going high and low on price. Here are some hot representative picks:
GNR8 also has normal stuff too, and they've added furnishings and "kids" as well, but go for the far out lighting.
