The Nola light was created as the perfect light for bedside applications. We realized that people want personal light that doesn't disturb their partner. We also realized that goose necks are chunky, clumsy, and frankly, ugly. We used a rocker switch and put it right where you think it will be, making it easy to find and operate in the dark. We set the LED deep inside the tube and added a black ring to reduce the glare. Finally, we found the perfect paint and brushed finishes. All this makes Nola our favorite bedside light yet.
