I’ve come to the conclusion that Israeli’s like two types of lamps – ceiling and wall – they do not do table lamps. And for these to types Israeli artists create pieces which are modern, creative and unexpected. Forget traditional, I’m not even sure there’s a word for it in Hebrew. The closest you’ll get is a chandelier.
Lumos (they don’t have a website yet – but they will soon) is located at 45 Yedidia Frankel Street in Florentine (south Tel Aviv) and features original lamps by a group of Israeli designers. I really loved the pink chandelier featured above, it also has some great wall lights that went with it – but weren’t too matchy matchy in style.
Of course, I forgot to bring my camera with me, so these photos are courtesy of Lumos.
The snowflake (my reference, not theirs) lamp above was probably the most traditional of the lamps in the store, in that you kind find other pieces similar around town. However, you could see that it was made with detail and care. I only wished I remembered to ask how you get the light bulb in?
The icicle (again, my reference) wall lamp has an elegant base with a funky shade. I think the combo works well.
This black and clear ball would look wonderful as an accent in a black and white hallway. The clear pieces are a subtle accent which makes the black that much more stark and dramatic.
This ivory porcelain wall lamp adds interest and texture. If your favorite color for decorating is white or ivory and you need something to keep your space from becoming dull – this would be it.
Lumos – definitely worth a look (03) 681-7776. Incredibly nice people working there as well.

Any idea of price ranges?
Their prices are high because it’s all individually made – but they are negotiable (in other words go early and haggle, haggle, haggle!)
I love the first hanging lamp.
Shira, were you at the shop? Do they have more of that “vintagy modern” combo like the first photo?
I was in the shop and they did have more like the “vintagy modern” combo I started with (and was my favorite BTW).
