Cut it out


Lindsey Hughes -- Home Accents Today, April 1, 2010

Slashing its way to the stylish forefront, cut-out detailing lends a bit of unexpected edge to lamp designs. Whether slight and playful or dramatic and bold, the sizzling trend takes offerings from ordinary to one-of-a-kind in an instant.

Reminiscent of natural driftwood, the Ocean lamp displays a wood base with an off-center circular cutout and a natural linen shade from Sitcom ($170).
Finished in a sleek black nickel finish, the Colima Collection lamp juxtaposes a black laser-cut acrylic shade with a petite cream inner shade from Dimond Lighting.
