From a birds-eye-view, it looks like an alien, but from the side it looks like a kidney bean. What is this strange object? A few of you thought it could “phone home,” but staff blogger Kayla guessed right, saying it has “a super-alien glow.”

Coco Design Foscarini Table Lamp

The Foscarini Coco Table Lamp, available in red and white, can bring modern character to any room. Italian designer and architect Aldo Cibic created the Coco lamp using blown satin glass for the shade and lacquered metal for the base. (Cibic was actually one of the original partners of the architecture firm that built the first Esprit shops in Europe.)

With the mix-and-match trend that’s happening right now, you don’t even have to have a modern home to sport this funky lamp. It could be especially fun in a kid’s bedroom or playroom, too.

I usually go for a more traditional style, but next to that art, I really like this piece. What do you think?

    I'm completely stunned I got this one right! I was originally thinking a stool after picturing this (like the ones we have around the office): http://www.contemporist.com/2008/10/22/the-sitnes…. But the hard exterior didn't seem bottom-friendly.

    Just watching Marriage Under Construction "Upper Deck" and just had to comment on the space cadet Lisa who is "teaching" the female homeowner. Please, please teach your representatives how to speak! Lisa speaks like a three-year-old and all of the Valley speak is revolting! Sing-song verbalizations will kill this show…hopefully!

    Haha. That's so true. I'm just impressed you could actually tell it was a hard surface. Good guess!
