A great lamp is like the perfect desk or a comfy chair – when you find a favorite, you cherish it. That's why we're particularly excited about the latest collaboration between our favorite living and design blog, Remodelista, and online décor and lifestyle boutique HORNE.
Starting today, HORNE has launched an online shopping partnership with Remodelista. Curated by the editorial team of Remodelista and the co-founders of HORNE, the HORNE + Remodelista collaboration will work with designers from around the world and highlight a cherished new design product every month that will be sold exclusively at HORNE. The first product to be introduced as part of the HORNE + Remodelista partnership is a version of the classic Jielde Signal Desk Lamp SI333 in an exclusive new color, bronze.
Jielde, the design house that created the Signal Lamp, has a storied history. In the 1950s, Jean-Louis Domecq was tired of searching for a reliable and practical lamp for his workshops - so he created his own. And what a lamp it was. Not only was it visually beautiful, the magic was in how the electricity in the lamp is transported through the joints, eliminating the need for fragile (and ugly) wires. That also meant the lamp could twist and turn into any position – and still look gorgeous. The lamp was so popular Jean-Louis created a company dedicated to making the lamps and named it after his own initials : Ji eL Dé (pronounced in French).
The Remodelista + Horne Jielde SI333 Signal Desk Lamp is Jielde’s modern interpretation of the perfect home desk lamp. Hand-made in Lyon, it's finished in a bronze high gloss metallic, and retails for $495. It's available for purchase only at http://www.shophorne.com and you can read more about the Jielde Signal Desk Lamp on Remodelista. Also cool, each lamp has a unique identifying number and a run of how many were made ... these are collector's items.
Although the editors at Remodlista have shared their favorite products for years, this is the first product for sale with Remodelista's name behind it. Look for more products that have previously been unavailable in the U.S. to emerge from the Remodelista + HORNE partnership in coming months, including lighting from Italy, ceramics from the U.K. and fixtures from Germany. We can't wait.
