   20% OFF PERFECTLY PORTABLE SALE NORBURN We are preparing for the changing season ahead with our Perfectly Portable Sale which will run from August 14 to September 16, 2017. All regular priced lamps and mirrors will be 20% off for this limited time.

So what makes portables so great?

1) SET THE MOOD

Lamps can soften shadows and provide ambient lighting for conversation or when reading. For instance, the LED Outdoor Lanterns with Bluetooth Speaker from Kichler offers ambient lighting that is dimmable and serves as an output for music when entertaining guests, or simply relaxing outdoors.

2)PRACTICAL

Portable lamps give the option to add a layer of light to a room without having to rewire which can be costly and unconventional for some homeowners. This is especially the case for older homes that bring up hidden costs of installing a new fixture which may require more work. In addition, portable lamps are also useful for providing task lighting for sewing, reading, or writing. The Valeo Floor Lamp from Cerno can offer ambient lighting to a space as an alternative for a fixture. The floor lamp is almost 8 feet tall and has an adjustable shade that can be lowered.

3) PORTABLE

Portable lamps are made of durable material but are not fixated to a single spot. Portable lamps can be moved to different areas or rooms that require an additional layer of light or a decorative element. This 2-Light Floor lamp from Dainolite has adjustable arms for versatile use, and has a mid-century modern aesthetic.

4)DECORATIVE

Portable lamps are also a great way to experiment with different styles to create a statement. Some lamps have replaceable shades which can enhance its visual appeal or match current decor. Portable lamps can also be a statement in and of itself, such as oversized floor lamps that can serve as general lighting for a room due to its scale or ornate lamps such as the Lynch Tiffany Table Lamp from Quoizel that has an intricate detailed glass shade.

5) SPACE

Table and Desk Lamps take minimal space, and also creates the illusion of a larger space when they are positioned in certain areas. For instance, when lamps are next to a wall such as when they are on top of a buffet or side table, they create a surface of light that makes the space appear larger. This is ideal in living rooms, dining rooms, and foyers where buffet and side tables are commonly used. The Saga Table Lamp from Dimond Lighting has a chocolate faux silk shade and a complimentary chocolate smoke glass base that provides the added illusion of a larger space.

We are anticipating the arrival of some bold and innovative pieces from Cerno that infuses modern architecture with natural elements.

Here is what you can expect to see in our showroom in the weeks ahead!

The Valeo

At almost 8 feet tall, the Valeo arches over any surface to provide ambient lighting. This floor lamp has an angular design made of walnut and aluminum that contrast the white fabric shade.
The adjustable aluminum arm and shade make the Valeo unique. The shade can suspend as high as 6 feet 7 inches from the ground, and can hang as low as 3 feet 11 inches from the ground.

The Silva Giant

The Silva Giant is another grandiose floor lamp, standing 7 feet tall. The Silva Giant is functional and stylish, providing necessary lighting for reading and an additional layer of lighting for a room. The floor lamp is designed with a curved base in walnut and brushed aluminum hardware for stability on uneven surfaces. The cord of the lamp feeds through one of the aluminum feet, keeping a portion of the cord hidden and maintaining a streamline look.

The Levo

The Levo is crafted with functionality in mind without compromising aesthetics. The bedside wall sconce offers ambient lighting and task lighting for the late night reader. The reading light swings out from the base, and automatically turns on when it is in use. When the reading light is tucked away, the light automatically turns off. The Levo also has a built-in USB charger that satisfies the techy in everyone. This wall sconce is available in both the left and right model to ensure that both sides are not left in the dark!

The Pendant Fixtures

We are also excited to introduce three pendant fixtures from Cerno, including the Calx, Imber, and Ignis.

The Calx

The Calx has a stunning geometric design made of walnut panels that create a prism appearance. The inner shade is lined in brush brass for a pop of metallic, adding visual interest. The bold design and large scale of the Calx makes it a great statement piece for any room.

The Imber and Ignis

The Imber and Ignis are both designed with a brass finished bouillotte shade, and walnut arched arms.

The Imber is finished in a distressed brass and is slightly taller at 17.75 inches, and narrower at 17 inches. The walnut arms on the Imber pendant is more dominant, protruding out slightly taller than the arches on the Ignis.
