Today is the first day back to school, and now you can get your kid thinking ‘school’ even when he’s at home with these fun chalkboard lamps. We love that fact that youngsters can rewrite their decor whenever they want to and add variety to their surroundings on a whim without having to purchase multiple versions of the same thing. Made by artist and designer John Beck, these minimalistic lighting fixtures are the perfect canvas for any child’s musings or math problems, and they’re made of 95% recycled steel. Since they come in three different sizes, you can choose exactly the right one for your child’s room, kitchen or living room. Each lamp is made by hand in John Beck’s studio in St. Louis, MO.
