For some reason I'm having a bit of a fascination with thorns. My last (and ongoing) obsession has been with arrows, so I guess this is a natural progression.

The rosewood "dornstab" lamp. Danish for thorn staff, the stem of the lamp has thorn-like hooks, which let one adjust the light to varying heights. The New York Times has an interesting piece on how this design and others were almost lost...
