IThe Nelson Ball Lotus Table Lamp is part of the Nelson Bubble Lamp series. Mounted on a steel base, the charming sphere fills interiors with a warm, diffused light. George Nelson, inspired by a set of silk-covered Swedish hanging lamps, originally designed the Bubble Lamp series in 1952.
Use with up to 150 watt bulb. Light bulb not included.
Fashioned from a lightweight steel frame, the perfectly rounded sphere of the Nelson Ball Lotus Table Lamp is set on a steel base, available with or without a walnut cover, and includes an 86-inch plug-in cord. A pull chain with a solid walnut end provides a convenient way to turn the lamp on and off. In 1952, Nelson was impressed by a set of Swedish hanging lamps that were crafted with a silk covering. Their prohibitive price prompted Nelson to design his own in a way that made them more affordable. This timeless collection of pendants, sconces, tripods, table, and floor lamps complement contemporary interiors as easily and beautifully as they did mid-century homes.
