Lumiere au Chocolate by Alexander Lervik

View all 7 Photos

Oh, ladies (and gentlemen, but mostly ladies) have we got a show for you! Your best friend chocolate has just brightened your day in lamp form. The Lumiere au Chocolate by Sweedish designer Alexander Lervik illuminates a room with a real working light and the aroma of melting chocolate. The heat from the bulb slowly melts away the velvety shade, dripping into the black tray base. Openings form to reveal the glow inside. A wonderfully delicious 15 minute show that’ll pull you out of that funk and into a blissful moment of contentment. This piece is being presented at the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2013.

The designer’s words, “the lamp was initially cube-shaped, but once we determined how chocolate melts together we modified the shape to resemble a cut-off pyramid, I find it poetic, with complete darkness at first and then a tiny ray of light penetrates the dark chocolate.”

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
