Just In: The Chicken Lamp

This just popped up in my inbox and I thought it was hysterical. It’s called the Chicken Lamp, and yes it is really a chicken.

Chilean born, New York based artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz created this working lamp using actual taxidermy.

Previously he designed a Duck Lamp out of a taxidermy duck with a broken neck (poor duckie) that he found in the trash of a taxidermy museum. (Museums just toss specimens in the trash? Really?) Apparently he was nervous about presenting the piece since taxidermy was not yet trendy.

Taxidermy is certainly trendy now (with deer heads thankfully disappearing from the design scene), though not sure I’ve seen much in the way of stuffed chickens.

Get the Look: 30 Bedroom Sconces

Following on yesterday’s Montage: Bedroom Sconces post, I’ve spent the snowy evening pulling together 30 modern and industrial bedroom sconces for you. They vary in style, but they’re each appealing in their own way, and would look beautiful on either side of a bed. If you’re into the Serge Mouille style and long articulating sconces, look back to last year’s Get the Look: 22 Scones That Stretch.
