ecco. lamp.



If you're looking for a table lamp that will fit into an industrial decor, you should be looking at the Ecco Lamp. From the chrome plating to the wall-style flip switch (illuminated, no less), this thing could have fallen out of the back of Monster Garage. Oh yeah, it has a dimmer too.

2 finishes. 50 watts.
If chrome is a bit over the top for you, you can soften the Ecco with a pewter finish, although I don't think that will make it blend into your Victorian sitting room more easily. It also comes with a sandblasted glass shade that helps to lessen the industrial feel, but honestly, why did the designers bother? I think some nice mesh -- or possibly barbed wired -- would have been better.

turn. on.
One of the reasons I like the Ecco is that it solves the problem I always have of not being able to find those little turny-type switches on most table lamps, the kind where you have to reach up under the shade to get at them. Hate those. For $179 you can eliminate that problem.

hmm, i dunno - not much about this lamp makes me feel inclined to go out and BUY it. it does, however, make me think 'gee, i could head to one of the local lighting stores and buy everything i need to make a lamp that looks an awful lot like this and i could do it for under twenty-five dollars'.

I totaly agree with dori.

Anybody with the mind that likes this lamp could make it with, mabe not 25, but certainly under 175 USD. In less time than it takes to order it online.

i have almost exactly the same lamp next to my bed that I built from the hardware store. I think it cost about $35 for everything. much more "rustic" looking, but I really dig it. not a great photo, but you can kind of see it here:

looks like a cool lamp, but clap on, clap off is the best by far.
