The company makes chairs, desks, tables, lighting fixtures, storage options, beds, and every other type of home and office furnishing you can think of. Even better, they make it all at a great price without sacrificing anything in the way of looks, durability, or craftsmanship. They're an emerging power in the modern and contemporary American Furniture market, and Smart Furniture is excited to offer their products to our customers through our online store. Buy your own amazing Blue Dot furniture today!<br /><br />Since their inception, Blu Dot has had a fun and fascinating aesthetic. When you see one of their products, you can often recognize it immediately as one of their designs. They believe in modern looks, crisp clean lines, solid colors, and beautiful construction. Everything they make comes from the contemporary, fresh perspectives of their designers, and the furniture they're making is really turning heads in the design community. <br /><br />Smart Furniture has partnered with Blu Dot for the last several years in yet another attempt to bring great ideas, great designs, and great furniture to our customers online. Blu Dot furniture is some of the best around; it's modern, it's comfortable, and it's very affordable. We're proud to partner with them for many reasons, but none bigger than those three. They believe in the same things we do, and they make amazing furniture for the contemporary home and office. They're relatively new, having been founded just 13 years ago, but in a little over a decade they've made a profound and lasting impression on the modern American furniture market. Whether you're looking for tables, desks, chairs, lighting, storage, or any other kind of home, office and public space furniture, you can find what you're looking for in the catalogue of Blu Dot furniture.<br /><br />Blu Dot was a business born of necessity, just like ours here at Smart Furniture. We first opened our doors because we wanted to give customers access to the products they were buying; we wanted them to have a say in the design of their own furniture, aka, design on demand. Blu Dot furniture has a similar philosophy, and they're focused on excellence and affordability. All of the furniture they make comes from the same original, inspiring idea, the idea that started the company; beautiful furniture, and beautiful design, should be attainable. It's that simple, and that revolutionary. <br /><br />The company was founded by three college friends who were freshly graduated and ready to move into new homes and apartments. In college they had all bonded over their mutual interests in design, architecture and artwork. When they were ready to start their own homes, naturally they wanted to outfit them in a way that reflected their ideas, their tastes and their advanced notions about design and personal space. But there was a problem; they couldn't afford the great furniture they loved, and they didn't like the low-quality or big-box furniture that they could afford. For many customers, this is a very familiar dilemma. But the three friends decided to do something about it. They decided if there was no supplier for their fairly common demands, then they would have to make the furniture themselves. And that's how they came to form Blu Dot. <br /><br />In the years since the company was founded, in 1997, the three friends, John Christakos, Charles Lazor, and Maurice Blanks, have gone on to create some of the most comfortable, innovative, and beautiful modern furniture on the contemporary American scene. Blu Dot furniture is just as lovely and well designed as any other modern furniture maker, and the business has stayed true to it's initial imperative; to keep the furniture amazing and the prices low. They created elegant desks, funky chairs and seating options, cool lighting systems and decor. And to top it all off, they made it affordable. That solved the problem they'd had right after college, when their taste level was much higher than their income level. Business born of necessity; just like Smart Furniture. <br /><br />Blu Dot has mastered the art of making affordable furniture that never looks cheap and that can boast levels of craftsmanship and aesthetic excellence measuring up the standards of any furniture maker in the business. Like Smart Furniture pieces, Blu Dot furniture is heavy on quality and low on cost. It's a business and a whole system of furniture that believes in democratic design, and in serving the customer first and foremost. Beautiful design shouldn't be the sole province of museums and high income Americans, it should be available to everyone at a reasonable price. Blu Dot furniture believes that, and so do we at Smart Furniture; that's why we make such great partners, and that's why we're so happy to bring you the whole roster of amazing Blu Dot furniture online.</span>

Flask Table Lamp
by Blu Dot

Flask Table Lamp At A Glance:
Formal, mature, and with perfect manners, the Flask Table Lamp is happy to be an understated feature of your home that only attracts attention because of its refinement. Available in all black with a brass pull, or ash with white accents and a neutral shade. Both colors have a gray cloth-covered cord.

What's To Like:
Balanced with more visual weight at the top, Flask's effect is to draw attention to the light streaming from it. Elegant light. Sort of like the girl with the purple tights over there. Yeah, we don't know either.

What's Not to Like:
Maybe it's got a smaller base than you want. That's legit. If you don't like the Flask Lamp's base, check out the Rook Table Lamp. It's got a more substantial base.

The Bottom Line:
Blu Dot's Flask Table Lamp really is a go-anywhere lamp. You'll be able to set it in place with the assurance that it looks like it's always been there and is happy to remain.

  • Overall dimensions: 24.6" h x 17.5" diameter

Design Story

The Flask Table Lamp is an elegant work of art from the offices of Blu Dot. A smooth, polished base narrows into a stem that reaches up into a wide, cylindrical lamp shade. Each element features clean lines, a modern look, and subtle materials. Renowned for their modern, contemporary designs that bring a new sense of style to familiar objects and pieces of furniture, Blu Dot is an industry leader. With the Flask Table Lamp they've subtly re-invented one more necessary piece of furniture, an inverted traditional lamp design, in an eye-pleasing way.

The Flask Table Lamp is different from most modern lamps because the focus is much less on the base than on the lampshade - the source of the light itself. Rather than spending their time bringing focus to the basically non-functional side of the lamp, Blu Dot has made the choice to go simple on the bottom and elegant (and large) on the top. Of course, that's not to say that the base is without its own charms - the simple flask design is perfect for what Blu Dot is trying to accomplish, and it brings attention to itself only as a complement to the source of light.

As with almost every product at Smart Furniture, you can use our online design engine to craft the final look of the Flask Table Lamp, and have a hand in the final design of the product you buy. In this case you can choose between two different colors that make two very different design statements. The Ash version of the lamp is light and subtle, bringing the focus to the lighting. The Black version is much more dramatic and metallic - and brings the focus of the eye to the entire piece. Either way you choose, you'll be getting a beautifully designed lamp from one of the best furniture firms in the world.

      Comments about Blu Dot Flask Table Lamp:

      We use this lamp in our small master bedroom next to the bed. I didn't really read the dimensions listed on the website, so the lamp was bigger than I expected based on the photos we viewed. It's not a bad thing at all, in fact it gives a different look than we anticipated but it's a very sharp looking lamp. I love the easy on/off pull - this feature is great when you need to turn on the lamp in the dark. Overall it's a very attractive lamp.
