Let's just say I have been sitting in the dark until now. Hardly two months ago, there it was, the light at the end of the tunnel in a zoom call with my boss.
So, I sat there nodding my head and trying my best not to come off too crazy or make it evident that I wasn't listening to a word she was saying. It was so hard to—I was mesmerized. We're now approaching the end of our call, and I slyly mentioned what a gorgeous lamp she owned. Then she paused, so long that I thought her network was reconnecting. I froze and started thinking about the worst-case scenarios in my head, including that I was getting fired. Right? I know. Well, maybe I am a tad crazy.
To no one's surprise, I was not fired. Yay! In fact, I may have scored some brownie point as my boss came back into action and went on and on about this lamp. The features, the quality, the aesthetics, she would not stop talking, and I was all ears this time around! She told me about Articture, a brand she had found out about recently... I checked them out on social media and looked up their reviews and was pleasantly surprised!
Since its public debut, the Light of Life has been constantly selling out! Every time they get some in stock, they get bought right up! And, most of these have been repeat purchases… meaning, people love them so much, they buy even more!
Okay, but sometimes I don't trust social media, so I really went in deep to try and find some honest to goodness reviews of the product.
I was sold.
Now let’s fast forward past the ordering, the waiting, and all that boring stuff, and voilà - my lamp has arrived... in only 3 days!!
I look at my home in a whole new light now! Pun intended! And yes, if you got this far reading, which I hope you did, you may be thinking that I'm slightly absurd about loving a lamp so much, but hear me out, this lamp isn't just a lamp; it's a functionality MACHINE!
By now, you must be thinking, 'what kind of magical transformer of a lamp is this?' I am going to break it down for you and list my favourite features for this light in no specific order:
This lamp wirelessly charges your phone. Yes you read that correctly. I didn’t know that this is what I wanted or needed, but after owning it for a few weeks, I can’t go without it. The luxury of being able to toss my lifeless phone on the base of this lamp with no worries of locating where I last placed my charging cord is PURE GOLD.
Yes, this lamp is a speaker, also. I know what you're thinking - that's cool, but the quality can't be that great..... WRONG.
Again, no need for messy-looking wires—connect straight with your Bluetooth and listen to your favourite Spotify playlist even while it's on the charging dock! It's a win-win if you ask me. Or would that be a win-win-win?
Now it's time to talk about the quality materials that make up this elegant fixture. The lampshade is built of transparent and stunning cherrywood, where you can get the beauty of the wood grain as the light radiates through to brighten any room. Plus, all this linking and rooting from a solid steel tree trunk into the base of the lamp. I love the juxtaposition of the metal tree-inspired light created with natural wood.
My Light of Life lamp started in my bedroom. Great nightstand lamp, drop your phone on the charging dock and throw on one of your favourite podcasts to drift off to la-la land. Perfect. And, I mean this whole-heartedly when I state this—I missed my lamp when I wasn't in my bedroom, which I rarely am other than to sleep. This lamp, needed to be seen, it needed to be appreciated! So my light got upgraded to the living room—traffic city.
And, surprise, surprise, it looks just as great as it did in the bedroom! Sadly, due to lockdown, I haven't benefited from having people over and showing off my purchase. However, a few weeks into having the lamp resided in prime real estate, I was on my Wednesday Wine zoom hang with my friends to not one but three, immediately demanding details on my new lamp. The circle was now complete.
UPDATE: So far, 6 months after, the light is just as beautiful as ever. They really chose the right materials. This is going to last a long time. The speaker quality has been consistent, and after getting a new phone, it's been charging even faster which was something I didn't expect at all!
That was my first question when I originally heard about the Light of Life. Normally, when things are this good… they aren’t cheap!
But, I was so, so happy when I saw that this designer company wasn't here to rip me off. The Light of Life sells for $199, and after looking for comparable quality products including a designer lamp, speakers, and a wireless charger, I was looking in excess of $400. They've really put together an amazing product. when I compared what went into the Light of Life it's actually a bargain!
Absolutely. There's no question about it. This Lamp has been a Godsend, and I get compliments on it literally every time someone sees it. So many of my friends have bought one after seeing it in my house.
It's even better than I thought it would be!
As of Wednesday, April 28, 2021, Articture is offering a special discount for US residents. But hurry, due to extremely high demand, Articture has sold over 3.5 million Light of Life's and is frequently in and out of stock. Due to its popularity and positive reviews, the company is so confident in their product that they are now keeping their products as limited edition drops. If it's in stock, grab it while you can!
