Caroline Gomez's Torche Lamp is Part Light Fixture, Part Flashlight

The Torche Lamp has a uniquely unfinished look that is more focused on function than form. When I take into account its versatility -- the design conveniently converts from a table lamp into a flashlight -- I realize that that is perhaps the point. Yet it does have quite an attractive aesthetic despite this fact, one that would appeal to hipsters and those who prefer minimalist designs.

Created by French designer Caroline Gomez, the Torche Lamp's bare, minimal look also makes it appropriate for almost any space. Despite its function-focused existence, which would definitely appeal to men, I love that it has an overtly feminine quality. The Torche Lamp's colorful cords really give it a stylish appeal that will have people coveting it in no time. Stats for Dual-Purpose Lighting Trending: Older & Mild
