Glamorous mid century modern lighting from Jonathan Adler

It’s the Parker collection, which I spotted trolling through LampsPlus.com. While I’d call this ‘contemporary’ — as in very 2010-2011, this collection has clear roots in mid-century modern. The marketing blurb says that he created this lighting for the Parker Palm Springs luxury resort. There are several styles of fixtures — a ceiling mount (shown above), a drop pendant (right) and an against-the-wall sconce that I think you might even be able to mount horizontally in the  bathroom above a mirror. And, there are three finishes — a shiny nickel, a shiny brass, and a bronze-almost-black. Very pretty.

    Great article! I may be slightly over stimulated now but WOW. Sleep is for sissies anyway ;o)

    I’ve got the same monkey on my back, houses and decor, can’t get enough and was speculating that our obsessions are probably our art to us just like, as you mentioned, the foodies. Yeah, I’ll go with that, can’t beat a great rationalization.

    Love these!!! Having done a home tour here recently, I was floored by all of the high prices for modern lighting and furniture. Glad there are some alternatives! I’m also looking forward to hunting in vintage stores for our mid century remodel.

    Just wondering if you guys know where these lamps are made? I looked at the website and checked with LampsPlus, but they didn’t seem to know? (Pam, can you do some sleuthing for us?)

    I do know what you mean! If it doesn’t come from an auction or an estate sale, I usually feel like I could have tried harder to get something cooler or cheaper! The kitchen may be another matter, but I really loved your post about that painting kit for cabinets and the retro color choices.
