Above: Finnish inspired Ada Table Lamp with cotton drum shade and lacquered resin tulip base; $59.95 at CB2.

Above: As long-standing fans of Isamu Noguchi (see Lighting: Noguchi Akari Lamps), we were interested to see that Ikea has come out with a couple of handmade rice paper table lamps, obviously inspired by the Japanese American master. The 9-inch-diameter Vate Table Lamp is $9.99 at Ikea.
