Shoe Toss lamps

If you’re on the hunt for a truly unique lamp to accessorize your living room, Etsy is a far better place to start than Ikea. Because that’s the only place you’ll be able to buy this illuminating creation from┬áRicochet Studio┬áthat looks like a pair of shoes tossed over a power line.

Those shoes, however, are made from porcelain with halogen bulbs hidden inside. But while the sneakers are fake, the power lines aren’t. They actually carry electricity to the shoes via their laces, and the sneakers can be adjusted and repositioned however you want them to hang.

There’s only one of the Shoe Toss lamps left, though, and if you want to string it up in your home you’ll have to scrounge up $2,000 and find a place where you’re not going to be constantly clotheslined by the cables.
