3. Umbrella Table Lamp by Pablo

This time of year you can expect a little rain and snow. The best way we can think of to stay warm and dry? Stay inside and enjoy the Umbrella Table Lamp by Pablo.



The Umbrella Table Lamp by Pablo


The Umbrella Table Lamp was actually designed by Pablo Pardo back in 2009, but remains popular to this day due to its whimsical form and flattering light. Inspired by photographers’ lighting, the shade is a literal interpretation of an umbrella. It’s made out of lycra that stretches taut over the metal spokes of the frame. (It is also easily removable and safe for machine washing if need be.) Attached to a swivel base, the shade can be moved anywhere you need soft, diffused light.

Available in a range of shade colors and sizes, this Umbrella is the must-have accessory for any modern interior this winter season.
