These elegant dissected log lights and sculptures from LA-based design firm Split Grain are works of modern art. The stunning sculptures are handcrafted from Californian Cypress trees before being sold on the designers Etsy site.

For anyone interested in contemporary furniture design -- these unique lamps would make an amazing statement piece for your home. The huge mounds of sliced tree trunks with light shining through them are certainly unconventional compared to most lamps on the market today. The artist says each piece can take up to 100 hours of labor each.

One of the bigger lamps will set you back a crisp $1,800 dollars, which isn't bad considering the time, effort and materials that have gone into crafting such a work of contemporary art for your home.
