In The Dark

November 9, 2018

There’s always a little extra illumination needed once Daylight Saving Time has us “falling back” into Autumn darkness. Recent upgrades to Peter Bristol’s Thin Task Lamp provide us with even more design options when using this simplequietmodern favorite to shine a little needed light on things. Still providing a minimalist profile while providing fully articulated warm white LED illumination, the Thin Task Lamp is now available in a wall mount. Two sizes, three finishes, hardwire or plug- in options and matching toggle or rotary switch and dimmer will have your needs covered no matter your desired application.

In The Dark

November 13, 2016

Evening darkness comes so quickly after “falling back” with Daylight Saving Time. Now is a good time to search out some additional light source so you don’t find yourself shuffling off to bed shortly after walking in at the end of a long day. This mid-century pin-up light, with it’s articulated arm and adjustable shade, might be just right if you can find one. Designed in 1960 by Dutch designer JJM Hoogervorst, the Paperclip Wall Lamp is the perfect solution to shedding some necessary task light on a project or washing your room with a warm glow. Finding one would be nice…a pair even better. It’s going to be dark for a while so you better start looking.

Illuminating

September 4, 2014

I was trying hard to warm up to the LED as a lightsource but it was a slow go. The initial offerings had color so bad that the CFL seemed tolerable by contrast. Remember the white miniature LED Christmas lights of  a few years back?  How blue were they?  The thought of illuminating your interior with that option drove many to gather the last of the incandescents left on the shelves. Finally, we are not only finding LEDs with the warm white light we are used to, we are seeing amazing new designs in lighting and fixtures like never before. One of my favorites is THIN, designed by Peter Bristol and Juniper Design. As task lighting, Thin comes pretty close to simplequietmodern perfection with its minimal profile, full articulation and integrated dimmer. Now that it’s time to get “back to school”, this might just make hunkering down with that pile of homework something to look forward to.
