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."

PRV Light Screen by Superieur - $1500

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:

Maxisweep Projected Clock Lamp by Stephen Savage - $250

Superordinate Antler Chandelier by Jason Miller - $1500

LTT illuminated bathtub by Jan Puylaert - $1500

Slide Light by Sam and Jude - $190

GNR8 also has normal stuff too, and they've added furnishings and "kids" as well, but go for the far out lighting.

Best,
