Remodelista + Horne: A One-of-a-Kind Jielde Signal Lamp

At Remodelista, we've been infatuated with the industrial chic of the French Jielde Signal Lamp for a while now. So when our friends at Horne invited us to commission a special edition of the iconic lamp in bronze, it was an easy decision.

A bit of history: The first Jielde lamp was created in 1950 by Jean Louis Domecq, a designer based in Lyon, France, who was frustrated by the dearth of heavy-duty, hard-working task lamps on the market. He set out to create the most functional working lamp in the world, and in the end, he created something that was not just functional but also beautiful. In 2006, Jielde introduced the Signal collection for the home, including smaller-scaled lamps in a range of finishes.

In collaboration with Jielde and Horne, we're offering the Signal Lamp in bronze, with a powder-coated finish that functions as a neutral but adds a glamorous note to any workspace. Interested? The limited-edition Jielde SI333 Signal Desk Lamp in Bronze is $495 at Horne.
