Horse Floor Lamp

A picture is worth a thousand words!  If I tried to explain to you in words what this item looked like I am not sure the true image would be conveyed.  Yes…that is a live sized black horse with a lampshade above its head!  While walking through the ELTE showroom  (located in Toronto) I spotted this absolutely stunning (read: very unique!) floor lamp.  It would have been hard to miss though as it stands at an impressive 7 feet tall and 7 ½ feet in length.  Not your average floor lamp!  Designed by the Swedish design group Front, whose work is based on explorations and experiments that communicate a story to the observer about the design process and the material used.  Sofia Lagerkvist, Charlotte von der Lancken and Anna Lindgren, the three members of Front, have in their work assigned part of the making of design to animals.  Just as this floor lamp is unique, so too would the space that could hold such a piece also have to be.  Considering the average house has doorway heights of 7 feet and ceiling heights of 8 feet, the Horse Floor Lamp would need a very ‘tall’ home!  And the price – almost $8,000.  That’s some serious pedigree!

  1. Hi Michelle. I just wanted to leave you a quick comment to thank you for shopping at Elte and featuring one of our products on our blog! My name is Andrew Metrick. My great grandfather started Elte more than 90 years ago, which makes my brother and I the fourth generation. Anyway, it means a lot when people take the time to write about our store so I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate it. Just seeing someone in the store like a product enough to stop and admire it would be enough so thank you. We actually recently launched our brand new Facebook page a couple of weeks ago so if you want to see more new products as they come to the showroom, feel free to stop by. Thanks again!

    • Thanks Andrew for dropping by. I remember when Elte was located near Eastern Ave; truly a fixture of Toronto! Keep bringing interesting pieces to the shop. Love it.
