This pretty home lighting accessory is very sleek and modern looking, and it certainly appears to be run on magic. However, it is run on plain, old-fashioned electricity, and it will light up your room just like an old five dollar lamp from Home Goods will. The old lamp may give off just as much light, but your new levitating lamp levitates, which is far more extraordinary than just producing light. The lamp will remain levitating as long as it is plugged in, and will continue to levitate when the LED lights are turned on. The base is handcrafted of wood, and has a high gloss finish.
