Design Within Reach: Cortina Floor Lamp by Pablo Pardo
A long, lean column of light that emits a subtle glow, this floor lamp provides a way to add lighting without the bulk, weight or color imposed by many floor lamps of similar size. Equipped with a full-range dimmer, the lamp can be adjusted to suit your needs and taste . . . it's good-looking AND polite.
You get the idea, really awesome at night time!
