Everyone's favorite 'Family Guy' character has been turned into a light fixture: The Stewie Lamp. Although this can be excused as a 'take over the world' experiment gone wrong, it wasn't created for the show, simply inspired by it. As a person can see, if it were, the Stewie Lamp wouldn't be so abstract and chic-looking.

Designed by Luca Nichetti for Foscarini, the Stewie Lamp has a friendly shape, one that may not exactly be in line with the character's vindictive personality. Nevertheless, the squarish body and thin legs is reminiscent of Stewie's build. Nichetti observes, "It almost becomes a little person."

The Stewie Lamp is made out of heat-shaped polyethylene, which is pliable to the touch, which gives it an add sense of comfort. It is finished with a prismatic fabric cover that diffuses the light. Stats for Abstract Cartoon Character Lighting Trending: Older & Chilly
