    I like the lumiere better... not a fan of the see through plastic look.

    Also you have to keep in mind how the plastic would look after a bit of use. Scratches are inevitable with this type of design.

    Plastic doesn't look good in my opinion.
    I would try to look for literally, "a modern design".
    But I voted for the lumiere

    I like Lumiere. Not sure how plastic would respond if the lamp got really hot.

    The ones on the left look too much like an upside down giant condom in a trashcan blowing into a trumpet (or a vuvuzela :)) So I'm gonna have to go with the ones on the right.

    wordoflife,

    What lamp is that that you posted a pic of? I like it.

    I voted for the one on the right by the way. The clear plastic is a no-go for me.

    I'd pick the second one. The first one looks kind of cheap.

    That lamp is amazing, but I'm trying to keep my room from looking like the stereotypical comp sci / college student room.



    That's a very interesting interpretation... hahaha! :eek:

    Definitely the right one. The left one looks like a plastic cup...

    OK. So I bought the Foscarini Lumiere, what do you think?
    The odd shaped thing next to the lamp is a to scale mockup of a Aalto savoy bowl.

    I like it. I would have voted for the Right-hand picture anyways, if I came across this thread sooner.

    It looks nice with your table
