Chalk this up as a “why didn’t we think of that?” find. The Coil Lamp by designer Craighton Berman takes the most basic of ideas and turns it into a DIY home treasure. It’s basically an extension cord, Plexiglass base and a bulb. Buy the cord of your choice, wrap it around the base and voila! – you’ve got a lamp you designed yourself! (Without a messy cord to trip over.) Berman says, “The first step is to pour yourself a drink. You will complete your Coil Lamp in the time it takes you to finish that beverage.” It doesn’t get any better than that.
