Jimmie Martin creates a whole line of one off designer furniture, lighting and home ware but it’s these hand painted Manikin floor lamps that can really light up a room’s décor. The modern madness of these Manikin lamps runs the gamut of shaded, exposed lights, seated, standing, male and female – each individually painted in a wide array of artistic statements. They are absolutely marvellous!
The graffiti versions of the Jimmie Martin Manikin Floor Lamps are some of my favourites in their bold splashes of colour and letters. I especially like the one that holds the Edison bulb in it’s mouth.
If you are into comic books these zing, kapow, boom lamps are so light hearted and fun.
Aside from being fun the comic book aesthetic add a wild punch of colour to any room.
More restful on the eye are these geometric designs; I love the gold shade interiors on the black and white compositions.
Traditional imagery of parrots and stick men still manage to look oh so modern.
Even when boasting a minimalist colour scheme, the Manikin Floor Lamps make a huge impact.
Many of the Manikin Floor Lamps use letters as the main stay of their composition and these four turn those letters into words. Also, as much as I like the gold interiors of the lampshades, I think I like the purple interiors better – maybe it’s a tie.
It’s your imperfection that turns me on. I can’t read the others.
I believe that every piece in your home should speak for itself and these Jimmie Martin Manikin floor lamps certainly do that.
Pop art, geometric or lettering, the Manikin Floor Lamps are marvellously mad.
Would you use one, two or more of the lamps in a room?
