It's natural to be inspired by the past, so why not reach further than the retro era into the medieval with the Puu Lamp. Although it looks like some kind of sinister mid-century contraption, it's helpful rather than harmful.

Designed by Marc Haldemann, the Puu Lamp is a strung-up lighting fixture that has a modern feel despite its antiquated tone. Made entirely out of wood, the weight of the bulb and shade creates the tension in the cord that runs through it.
