Artemide

Located in the heart of SoHo, this Italian lighting store offers a myriad of illumination options from modern sculptural lamps to sophisticated track and suspension systems. These beautiful pieces double as artwork, so the splurge is worth the price. Prices start around $100 for a simple wall sconce and can surpass $10,000 for glass blown chandeliers. Shop directly from their online store and receive an extra discount.  Home installation is not offered by Artemide, so buyers will need to hire a local contractor.
