This lamp designed by Harris Hine for Reclaiming Brooklyn was made from a branch that fell during the tornado that hit New York in the fall of 2010.

BRANCH LAMP is a system of metal shims, a spun aluminum shade, and lamp cord, which are capable of being custom-built to any size of found wood, as well as installed as outdoor lighting on living trees.

floor lamps start at $1000
lighting system at $500
I don't even know how to express how I feel about this, except to say I wish I had made it myself (and maybe I will...)
