Rook Table Lamp
by Blu Dot
At A Glance:
You don't need to be skinny to be beautiful. This little light is, unapologetically, a bit chunky and we think it's pretty hot. And Gary Kasparov wouldn't understand why this sweet little lamp is called the Rook Lamp, but that's OK. Solid walnut with a linen shade and gray cord, the lamp's base has a balance that enables it to be balanced on any of its three legs if you need directional light - or just because you enjoy oddity.
What's To Like:
Here's a lamp for all you who love tipping things over. Oh, and did we mention solid walnut? There's a reason everyone loves walnut: it looks really good. And, just like everything Blu Dot makes, the Rook Table Lamp has an element of crazy to it. We dig.
What's Not to Like:
Maybe it's got a larger base than you want. That's legit. If you don't like the Rook Lamp's base, check out the Flask Table Lamp. It's got a more svelte base.
The Bottom Line:
Blu Dot's Rook Table Lamp feeds our ever-growing appetite for new-modern Walnut furniture by saying all the right things. "I'm linear, I'm solid wood, I'm unique, I've got a cloth-covered cord." And you know what that means: it's the perfect table lamp for any setting, whether modern or just plain funky.
