Pantone’s Radiant Orchid (18-3224), an  intriguing shade of purple associated with joy, love and good health, has been selected as 2014′s “it” color. The captivating tone is quite a contrast from last year’s Emerald Green and 2012′s Tangerine Tango.

Designer’s Custom Table Lamps with Lamps Plus

Finding a table lamp in just the right hue has never been easier, more affordable or fun. The Color+Plus collection from Lamps Plus offers a whopping 100+  designer colors with custom-coordinated shades, bases and finials. The combinations are endless. And best yet you get a designer look (each hand-made to order) without the price-tag… Color+Plus lamps start as low as $39.99 and go as high as $299.99.  I know. It almost makes your heart skip a beat, doesn’t it?!

Lamps Plus asked several designers, television personalities and design bloggers to create a lamp (I was thrilled to be included!) and the results were recently released. Here are just a few of the colorful creations. Can you tell which one is mine?

In addition, a new lamp I  just created in minutes was thrown in the mix (top right) and it’s base color predicts what I think will be a big color, if not the Pantone color of the year in 2014 … Pantone 18-4434 Mykonos Blue!

Okay, I won’t keep you guessing. The pastel green ovo table lamp with gray dupioni silk shade was the lamp I created fro Lamps Plus. I loved the bold chartreuse paired with the classic gray. But, to find out who created the other lamps featured above, you will have leaf through the lookbook.
