Ether Light from Hayes lighting

This Ether table lamp from Hayes Lighting in Santa Monica is great.

The bases are available in hardwoods like ebony and cocobolo (not a thin laminate). The lamps have a chrome dimmer control, and white cotton fabric- laminated diffuser. They start at $898, so buying a pair for bedside lamps will set you back a bit, but the calming shape and glow would be great in the bedroom.
