This tabletop globe is called the Glo-Ball Basic Table Lamp. I love the way it sits directly on the table, making one wonder if it will just roll right off (don't worry, it won't). For those who can't keep a goldfish alive in a bowl, this is the next best thing.
The Suspended Glo-Ball is the first light that fooled me. Perhaps because it first caught my eye in this New York City apartment that is filled with midcentury icons culled from MoMA's archives.
Even though I'm throwing the word "globe" around a bit haphazardly, you can recognize a Glo-Ball because it's not a true sphere. The diameter of the shade is a few inches larger than the height.
The Glo-Ball Table Lamp sits atop an elegant, slender steel pedestal. It fits right into the clean-lined contemporary bedroom, adding style and curves without distracting from the view.
The Glo-Ball F Floor Lamps come in three different sizes, so there's one that's suitable for a favorite reading chair and one that can stand up to the scale of a large room with a high ceiling. Oh, and there's another one in between the two for those in-between needs.
