The 12 Modern Lamps of Christmas 2013 – Day 2

Hello again. With Black Friday and Thanksgiving weekend now behind us, we move onto “Cyber Monday,” the biggest online shopping day of the year. Rather than fight the crowds at the mall, today people take to the Internet to find the best deals…and shipping direct to their doorstep. To help make your shopping experience even more convenient, I’ve compiled a list of 12 lamps (available at that will make ideal gifts this holiday season.

The list began promptly yesterday on December 1. So if you’re curious about how this whole 12 Modern Lamps thing works, take a look here.

And then we’ll move on to Day 2 of our 12 Modern Lamps of Christmas:

The Masquerade Table Lamp by Varaluz

2. Masquerade Table Lamp by Varaluz

The Varaluz Masquerade Table Lamp is a cute, colorful table lamp perfect for that secret super hero in your life.  The unique shade was inspired by Zorro’s mask; turn your head to the side and you’ll see that the various ovals and curved lines are actually a series of that distinctive disguise.

As with the rest of the Masquerade collection, this lamp is hand-cut out of recycled steel before being coated in one of four eye-catching colors.  The entire piece comes to almost two-feet tall, so there’s no chance this guy will get overlooked on a table or sideboard.

By day, Masquerade is an unassuming (albeit colorful and unusual) table lamp. But by night, when darkness descends over the land and all hope for ambient light is lost, Masquerade is there to use its lighting powers for good. It creates a mesmerizing radiating pattern of light in all directions. It’s hypnotic, playful and much better than any Bat signal.
