Ross Lovegrove seems to have a unique talent for making things look like they are from the future. The Agaricon Table Lamp looks a little like a table sized space ship. This light looks good when not lit and amazing when lit. Although I really like it Ylighting currently only offer it in orange and jade. I would love to have got the clear/translucent version. It has a nice way of interacting with the light. Touching the rim will turn it on and off. Touching and holding will dim.

It looked so cool on line, and everything I'er ever ordered has been fantastic...at least as good or even better than the photo online. This looked like just the right piece for a contemporary master bedroom, including the great green color. When it arrived, it looked like a cheap lamp you would buy for a child's room...the plastic was too light, the color was so washed out you could barely see it and the plastic had multi-color sparkles in it like a '50's water pistol, which wouldn't have been bad if the lamp didn't look so cheap already...plus the sparkles were never mentioned in the copy, which may have caused me not to order it. I was upset that I had to pay for shipping on principle; this was clearly not poor design choice, but really poor product representation.
