Bones is a popular Fox Network TV mystery show that revoloves around the cases of FBI Agent Seeley Booth and his forensic anthropologist cohort, Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan. Booth is American rustic; Bones is urban chic.

As revealed in an Los Angeles Times feature article, the Bones design team turned to decor and lighting to visually express these two characters.

Reading the article, I spotted some of our very own LAMPS PLUS designs used in the sets!

Agent Booth's bedroom, seen above, has an Old West theme and uses our Neat Pleat Swing Arm Desk Lamp on the side table.

The set for Bone's living room has a different vibe, with chic seating, overhead lighting and accessories.

To set the scene, the designer used the very stylish Liata Collection Pendant Chandelier above the dining room table.

Above is a closer view of the pendant, which is highlighted by strips of champagne finish metal bands. Very stylish sets indeed!

  • That’s some attention to detail, it’s one of those things that I never really pay attention to in the background of a show! I really like those ‘Neat Pleat Swing Arm Desk Lamp’s’ (long name though). I’m actually an employee of DISH Network and keep falling behind on watching Bones but luckily DISH has the dishonline site. It’s an awesome new streaming site with a boggling number of shows and movies to watch. Much of it accessible by customers and non customers alike. Anyone else that wants to watch some Bones (or whatever), can check it out there if they’d like.

  • Looking for the lamps that are currently in Booth's office. Anyone know what they're called/ where I can find them?  Thanks!
