Touch-activated lamps are not just for your grandma anymore! Brooklyn-based Autumn Workshop’s Birch Log Touch Lamps are beautiful, innovative and modern. Made from repurposed raw birch log pieces of varying sizes, the lamps bring an outdoorsy feel into any room.
Each log is crowned with a retro energy-efficient Edison light bulb, which adds to the rustic feel (although it can easily be replaced with a more energy-efficient CFL or LED bulb!) The exposed bulb fits snugly into a carefully hand-milled weld at the top of the log. A blackened steel bar extends the length of each lamp, contributing both both form and function – it is wired to act as one giant dimmer switch. A touch of the bar illuminates the Edison bulb at four different levels of ambient light, from nightlight to bright enough to read a book.
