It doesn't take a foodie to immediately fall for Alex Garnett's Cone Lamps considering how most people grew up on soft ice cream. That delectable treat is now a decor piece that will deck the house in culinary goodness.

Garnett got his inspiration for the Cone Lamps when he saw the eco spiral bulbs that commonly occupy households today. The shape and form resembled the classic Mr. Whippy ice cream sold in trucks that kids would run after when hearing the jingle. As such, he designed a lamp in the shape of a cone that would house the twisty bulbs. Even though it's obviously fake, the piece does look surprisingly delicious.

The Cone Lamps will be available in two sizes and two colors. Stats for Sweet Illuminated Confections Trending: Older & Mild
