As a high-style desk accoutrement or simply for general illumination in a room, this table lamp is a sophisticated melange of romantic Nordic inspiration and high-tech lighting technology. Danish designer Sofie Refer found her touchstone in the warm light of a Scandinavian autumn and fashioned Blossi to give off a transporting warm, even illumination. Reflected in the lamp's beautifully rounded, mouth-blown glass shade, the light emanates from a specially developed LED disc rated to function for 50,000 hours. With its slimly elegant gold-tone base or the new black finish, the table model adds a discreet finishing note to any setting.

Nuura is an emerging Danish lighting brand that creates eclectic collections that each revolve around an updated chandelier. Cofounder Sofie Refer (alongside Nadia Lassen and Peter Østerberg) says, “For me, chandeliers are a beautiful symbol of generosity, a piece of art. That is why I always design a family of products around a chandelier.” Inspired by the fabled Nordic light, the company’s offerings meld time-honored artisanal techniques like mouth-blown glass with state-of-the-art technology.
Whether is is Anoli’s elegant drop motif inspired by a rainy day during autumn or Blossi’s futuristic domed shapes, each grouping extends to pendants, table lamps and wall fixtures. “I like repetitions a lot,” Sofie says. “There are repetitions everywhere in the nature, and they just bring certain calmness to a room, connecting things.”
