For months I was searching for the perfect pair of lamps for my daughter's room. We were finally rid of the crib and ready for redo the room with big girl decor. We have a mix of vintage dressers and modern bedding from Dwell. We chose a pair of Pablo tube top lamps in pink. The colored tube top lamps are only available in the small tabletop size with a height of 14 inches. Of course the concern for potential breakage when the lamp topples off the nightstand is a major one. Luckily with the tube top lamp breakage is not a concern because it is made of acrylic. The 'tube top' shade of the lamp did fall off once when it was knocked to the floor. The lamp was unharmed and the shade was easily put back into place. The thing I love most about the tube top lamp besides the unique design and bright colors is the dimmer feature that allows the lamp to become a night-light.
The lamp was designed by Peter Stathis for Pablo Designs circa 2006 and is now on it's way to becoming a design classic. The transparent base is acrylic and topped with a mesh 'tube top' shade, it is a well-made lamp and worth the $130 price tag. This lamp will transition nicely with the changes through the tween and teen years then perhaps in the guest room when she is off to college.
