George Nelson Bubble Lamps

A mid-century classic, the Bubble Lamp was first designed by George Nelson in 1947 and was produced by Howard Miller starting in the early 1950s and ending in 1979. Our supplier has reissued the Nelson Bubble Lamps to the original specifications, using the original Howard Miller tooling. These famous lamps are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

George Nelson

When writing about the course of his remarkable 50-year career, George Nelson described a series of creative "zaps", or moments of out-of-the-blue inspiration "when the solitary individual finds he is connected with a reality he never dreamed of."

Nelson said that for a designer to deal creatively with human needs, "he must first make a radical, conscious break with all values he identifies as anti-human." Designers also must constantly be aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society. In fact, he declared that "total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything." So he said that rather than specializing, designers must cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding.

Nelson did so as few are able, and, with the help of well-timed zaps, he helped define modern, humane design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for mid century or contemporary decor I love the George Nelson lamps and ordered this Cigar Wall sconce plus other bubble lamp pendants for my mid century mountain home in Highlands, NC. They look amazing and I received in less than a week from ordering online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful but... They look amazing but they smell. They smell so bad. It's slowly going away but we had them for over 2 weeks and the smell is still there. It's noted somewhere on the site but beware that even in winter you keep your windows open to keep the gag reflex at bay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This is our 2nd George Nelson purchase, so we had high expectations. (We bought a Nelson CrissCross pendant from YLighting to hang in our kitchen about 8 yrs. ago, which we loved. We bought the Cigar Wall Sconce to hang over our family room sofa. It's a beautifully-designed wall sconce - aesthetically attractive with cool details like the walnut pull and wall anchor which frame the creamy striated shade & curved metal suspension; it's sturdy (the shade isn't fragile like it appears); and the weighted pulley allows you to raise or lower it to whatever level you like and, equally important, stay put at that level without sliding further down. This makes it easier to change the bulb and adjust the light level for reading. The subtle striations are visible whether lit or unlit, and provide scale and texture so it's not just an abstract shape. And it projects a warm glow. I've ordered a 100watt LED bulb for it, but it looks great with just a GE soft white 890 lumen Halogen bulb. A great value in every way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versital light We love the look! The light is a soft glow but lights the room. We are using then as night side table lights and they look great! The swing arm allows the size to work without sticking so far from the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This classic beauty was easy to install although it took two of us to hang it. Bottom screw one has to take care to keep the cord out of the way but not difficult to manage. Once installed amazing, beautiful quality, love everything about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very dramatic - makes the room! Using two of these Nelson Cigar Sconces in a bedroom. High drama pieces! The scale of these are larger than I expected - pleasantly to my surprise!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution for small space, excellent packaging This sconce was the perfect solution for replacing a large floor lamp next to our sofa and opening up more floor space in our small Chicago home. I was a bit nervous about having the piece shipped but it is maliciously packaged and arrived in perfect condition. The style is perfect for our transitional/eclectic decor - in fact, I am considering buying a second one for the other side of the sofa!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A modern classic that's easy to install The George Nelson lamps are classics by an American master. The Wall sconce is easy to install since no ceiling junction box is required. My small study has a ceiling of only 7 feet, so ceiling mounted fixtures are not possible for general lighting. Mounting this fixture on the wall gives good light for the small room and plugs into an existing receptacle. (It needs to be installed into a stud, but there is still good flexibility in placement since the fixture swivels left and right.) Installation tips: remove the metal swivel tube entirely from the wall bracket before attaching the wooden bracket to the wall. Don't try to install screws into the wall while the tube is in place; you'll damage the cord. And be sure you leave enough room above the bracket for re-insertion of the tube.

Can this be hard wired to the wall? I want to replace existing sconces and do not want plug in Thanks!

I have what I believe to be one of the original hanging Cigar lamps from Howard Miller Clock Co, and I would like to make it the adjustable wall sconce style. Is it possible to purchase the wall sconce part without the lamp? Thank you.

Certainly, this is something our parts department would be happy to look into for you. All parts inquiries are accepted via email, so send a quick email to parts@ylighting.com with your previous order number if you have it, name, best contact information, and the part you are hoping to replace.

From there, our parts team will create a custom invoice for you and reach out to the manufacturer directly for pricing and availability. You can call in payment at a later time. We look forward to your email, and thanks for contacting us! YLighting Team
