Looking through Jen and Moi's HIlltop Hideaway, there it was again! That lamp! IKEA's Knappa lamp is a go-to favorite on Apartment Therapy. A few weeks ago, a friend joked that if only he owned a Knappa lamp, an Eames chair and a Saarinen table he too could have a House Tour on Apartment Therapy — the lamp's certainly a good place to start!

The artichoke-style lamp, designed by Flemming Brylle and Preben Jacobsen of Denmark, crept up in popularity a few years ago when IKEA made it super-accessible. Outside of IKEA, the team has produced many similarly conceived knock-down, self-assembled designs since Brylle/Jacobsen inception in 1965. You can find some of their original lamp kits — some even still flat packed — on eBay.

The Knappa is $34.99 at IKEA.
