Obus Lights

obus indoor outdoor light

Is anyone else as intrigued by these lights as I am?   They look so similar to a light I had in England when my daughter was a baby.   As much as a person can love a light that cost something around 35GBP, I loved that light.    It had a shape very similar to the Obus, and worked by touch — so no switch to ruin the shape and no switch to deal with in the middle of the night when the baby is crying (it sat on our changing table).    It also had this soft half strength glow feature that faded on and off if you wanted (I think one touch was a fade, two touches worked like a switch – which was absolutely perfect for a nursery where everyone prefers to stay in a state of half sleep as much as possible).

So, that the Obus has a similar shape, and looks to have the same warm glowing quality that I associate with sweet tiny babies and nurseries AND it is for indoor and outdoor use AND it has a pick-up and carry around directional light feature that is similar to a flashlight function AND it is rechargeable for up to 25 hours of battery life, makes this light have some serious winner potential.   I just can’t figure out why that other perfect light was so cheap and this one is so much more expensive ($250).   Here’s hoping the cost comes down so I can buy a whole bunch of them.

They don’t have all your lovely extra features, but the look seems right.

Jenn — too funny — did you see my post at apartment therapy on Wed? (about Rancho Reuibdoux) — what is that about great minds?

so beautifull
