Description

We are all trying to figure out how to integrate low energy light bulbs into our environments, and so many options out there are ugly, high-tech and feel so plastic and space-age. Most LED lamps make me hate the look and feel of 'the future'.

The Truncheon Lamps on the other hand, don't feel that way. They integrate contemporary, intelligent technology but feel warm. I love that they are made in America using American hardwoods. The details feel timeless and basic in a beautifully classic way. If this is what the low-energy future looks like, I'm ready for it.
