It seems like branching furniture is the next hot thing in industrial design, and Nic Parnell has jumped on the bandwagon with fine results. Although much more rustic than the Happy Lamp that was recently featured, Nic Parnell's designs also show a current love for vibrantly colored lamp stands as well, in addition to the treelike aesthetic.

Based in London, Nic Parnell uses only reclaimed and found wood. As written on his site, "The perception of value with regards to wood has always been subjected to its properties of grain, character and strength." Parnell's work is stunning and surreal, with the lamp stand looking like it would be fit for a forest.
