Find This Lamp??

Find This Lamp??
A decor8 reader recently wrote in with this photo and asked if I knew where to find the quirky mumbo jumbo desk floor lamp (well that’s my name for it!). I’ve not come across anything like it before. Do you know much about it? Can you help?

    Hi Holly! Happy New Year and welcome back! I don’t know if this will be much help but I could have sworn I saw that same lamp in the January copy of Living Etc. magazine from England. Hope this helps!

    Hi, this lamp is by Max & Co. for Spazia. It’s a bit pricey- starts at $5,800. Comes in a few colors. It’s carried by a few retailers in the U.S. that carry Spazia. Nova 68 has it on line. Hope this helps.

    Target actually carries something similar, for under $500. The “Jumbo Architect Floor Lamp.”

    decor8 reader joellen sent me an email tonight… maybe this is a closer bet?

    Hmm…They have one at a store down the street from me called Matter in Park Slope, Brooklyn. They call it the Max Lamp and sell it for $3,500.

    thanks everyone. well, seems like we’ve located the lamp but the down side is that most of us cannot afford to actually own it since it’s well into the thousands…

    Hi Guys!
    I used to work in the building where that photo was taken!
    That is a limited addition anglepoise. I believe that they are out of production and that they are now making a different version of it. BUT it was sold at one point through twenty tewntyone.


    boconcept does a smaller version in silver and black… but it is stil pretty big…..

    FYI- that photo was taken at the Soho House NY. the room was designed by Ilse Crawford and that is a very rentable (very expensive) hotel room. the sofa is George smith, the wall mural is cutom and the rug is ABC
