Architect Michelle Kaufmann [2] has become known around the country for her innovative green prefab homes, and now the talented designer is launching a new line of green lighting products, starting with a brilliant 2-for-one vase lamp that holds flowers (or whatever else you want), while also lighting up your room in a sustainable, energy efficient way.

Kaufmann’s Vessel lighting sconce [3] integrates a usable vase with an energy-efficient light source, conquering both decorating and lighting concerns in one fell swoop. Always looking for ways to be energy efficient, Michelle designed the Vessel [3] to use either a long-life compact fluorescent bulb or LEDs. And thanks to the cool temperature bulbs, you can fill the lamps with water, flowers, bamboo, marbles and even fish, without the worry of a fire hazard.

Thanks to Preston of Jetson Green [5] for the tip.
