There would have been great potential for the Dog Balloon Lamp to come off as incredibly tacky, but it has been manufactured with a crispness of form and finish that make it a fun and fascinating home accessory.

The body of the lamp was inspired by the iconic creatures that clowns can churn out by twisting balloons into different shapes. This one was given four legs, a tail and the beginning of a head, adopting a distinctly canine appearance. It's made from plastic and coated in a shiny metallic paint that more specifically seems to reference a famous sculpture by Jeff Koons.

Sold through Target's online store, the Dog Balloon Lamp will brighten up your bedroom like clowns' creations illuminate children's eyes. Stats for Clown-Fabricated Fixtures Trending: Older & Chilly
