Not only were the lights great, Anita is the best customer service person I have ever worked with. Many phone calls, numerous emails, and the most friendly service and dedication to the customer I have ever experienced. We plan to use them again and again for a complete lighting update for our home.

The Palo Collection
The Palo collection is a classic of mid-century modern design with a unique vertical adjustability. Minimal, clean lines define this transitional look, with its vertical stem held in the grasp of a crisp right-angle stem for optimal adjustment. A linen drum shade illuminates from the top of the height-adjustable stem.
Robert Sonneman pioneered modern lighting making it an art form. World renowned and acclaimed for clean lines and alliance to form and function, his world famous award winning designs have been at the forefront of the design world for over four decades. Robert introduced sleek, new functionalist lighting designs in the 60s and 70s that have become classics of the modern era.
Sonneman's sensibilities and prolific design vocabulary extend through the modern architectural and decorative genres of the 20th century and forward to the contemporary diversity of the 21st. "I continue to investigate the evolutionary and the revolutionary as the basis for developing a cosmopolitan American style" said Robert Sonneman.
In Sonneman's current lighting collection are over a thousand designs ranging from Warm Contemporary to Ornamental Modernism and Modernist styles.
Robert Sonneman designs have been exhibited internationally as well as in the United States in major museums, exhibitions on design, galleries and shows over the last forty years. In addition, Robert participates and lectures at universities, and other venues of architecture and design.
Robert lives and works in New York and continues to innovate lighting solutions for the way we live.
Floor lamps are free-standing so they don't take up table space and can be placed nearly anywhere in a room as well as moved from one place or room to another. Depending on the type you choose, a floor lamp can provide either general ambient or task specific light.
If your goal is to add general ambient light to a room, a torchiere floor lamp is a good choice. The key design element of a torchiere is that the shade or bowl is open and points upward toward the ceiling rather than downward toward the floor. This provides a good amount of light that can often be the only light source in a smaller room or a great way to add light to a dark corner of a larger room.
If you need task specific light a more traditional floor lamp with a bulb and shade that point downward may be the best choice. For activities such as reading, sewing or other hobbies, you may want to consider a floor lamp with a directional head, many of which have arms that allow the light to be moved up or down and turned to the side to direct the light to exactly where you need it.
Bold yet sophisticated, Contemporary Modern Style focuses on clean, sleek lines. Using soft curves, it is never fussy and completely avoids anything ornate or ornamental. Strong geometric patterns and shapes are common along with the use of reflective metallic surfaces such as chrome, steel and glass.
