  • Kathy Ireland Back for DWTS Finale

    A Picture of Kathy Ireland
    A bum knee won't keep Kathy Ireland off the dance floor -- she'll return one last time on the upcoming Dancing With the Stars season finale November 24th.

    After that, Kathy's going under the knife. On Friday she tweeted, "The truth is...after my little spin on DWTS am going 2 have knee surgery."

    We'll be tuning in to see her "play through the pain" one last time Tuesday the 24th.

    She may not have taken the DWTS title, but her lighting designs are certainly winners. Especially this brand new floor lamp, appropriately named the "Trophy".

  • Sleek LED

    LED Desk Lamp

    Sleek is good, and so are LEDs. This nifty design gives you both. The energy efficient LEDs will last 30,000 hours, or (by my reckoning) around 10 years of use at 8 hours a day.

    The arm pivots and adjusts easily, making this a great design for reading or a computer work desk. And you can select full light output or use the lamp in night light mode.

    LED Flip Up Night Light Desk Lamp.

    Post Update 4-12-13: This design has sold out and is no longer available. But we have lots of new designs for you to choose from - LED desk lamps

  • Swarovski Crystal on Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree

    Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree

    Swarovski crystal designs aren't just for crystal chandeliers.

    This year, a gigantic Swarovski crystal star will sit atop the Christmas tree in New York's Rockefeller Center.

    The thing weighs in at 550 pounds, is 9 1/2 feet in diameter and is made up of some 25,000 crystals - not really suitable for home use! The star also features programmable, energy efficient LEDs that will provide a light show.

    The tree lighting is Wednesday, December 2.

    Swarovski crystal also decorates other holiday trees around the world, from Sydney to Milan. Celebrated Swarovski Christmas Trees around the world.
