The beautiful Bubble lamp was designed by George Nelson in 1947 as an innovative alternative to pendant lighting. Part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the iconic mid-century pendant has stood the test the time, with a translucent shell wrapped around a modern wire frame. i’ve had pear-shaped bubble lamp for over 10 years and it’s still my favorite fixture. modernica, who has always celebrated the beauty of mid-century modern design is hosting a massive sale on Bubble Lamps at their L.A. Showroom this month and since not all of you can make it there — they’re giving away a george nelson bubble lamp of your choice to one lucky sfgirlbybay reader.
