6 Great Holiday Gifts for Her and Him
Holiday season 2016 is underway so we thought we’d share our favorite picks for the special someone(s) in your life. Because a gift is an expression of your personal style, look for items that reflect your personality and taste, but suit the recipient. Gift giving should never send you to the poorhouse or break the bank. Send a heartfelt note or a baked good before gifting beyond your means. That said, here’s what we love! All items are currently available for purchase at Switch and will ship in time for Christmas and Hanukkah if order by December 10. Many more options to help you celebrate the season available in store. Visit our new location in downtown Cincinnati at 312 W. 4th. Hours: 10-6, M-S. Appointments welcome: 513.421.1901.

Our Top 5 Desk Lamps for Your Office
Today we’re here to share with you our top 5 picks for the best desk lamps for your office! The fixtures we chose for this (exclusive) list were chosen because they are all the most functional and classic fixtures that would fit into any space nicely. These aren’t really in any particular order (we could never settle on an absolute favorite)!
The first fixture on our list is the Tolomeo Table by Artemide. We love this fixture for its classic design and maximum flexibility. Tolomeo Table features an arm with a joint in the middle, and the ability to rotate 360 degrees. The head also rotates 360 degrees, so we aren’t kidding when we say this fixture is flexible! Tolomeo also has the option to come as an LED with a setting in which you can adjust the color temperature from cool to warm. That’s pretty amazing. To top it all off, it’s available in multiple colors and sizes, so it can easily be incorporated into any design style!
Artemide really knows their stuff. Our second fixture is their Tizio Lamp.
Tizio is also well know for its timeless design (it was first designed by Richard Sapper is 1972!) and functionality. The lamp features two arms with counter weights you can adjust to fit your lighting needs. It uses a halogen light source, and is available in a classic or mini version.
Next up is Marset’s Polo Lamp. Designed by Joan Gaspar in 2012, we enjoy the clean minimalism of this lamp! It’s LED and provides a wonderful, direct light for a workspace. Polo is available in white or black matte.
If you visit our blog regularly, then you already know of our love for the Pablo Pixo Lamp! This little lamp has great versatility with an arm that both tilts 180 degrees and rotates a full 360 degrees! The head can also do a full rotation. Pixo is an LED that has two brightness settings, and it even showcases a USB charging port right on the fixture!
Five: Anglepoise Original 1227
Our final product for this list is the Original 1227 from Anglepoise. If the Tizio is an old, yet classic design, then the Original 1227 is an ancient classic design! This collection was originally designed by George Carwadine in 1934! How is that for standing the test of time? The Original 1227 uses spring technology to accomplish ultimate flexibility and balance, plus it comes in a wide array of colors!

Chances are that if you’ve been in our showroom in the past week or so, we’ve presented this fixture to you. We just love it so much. We can’t help but show it off!
Pixo features a wide range of motions. The arm can be angled any way you please, including flat on the table! The head also rotates a full 360 degrees to accommodate whatever you may need lit up. This lamp also features LED technology and has three different brightness settings. Pixo also boasts of soft touch technology, so the fixture has a wonderful texture when touched.
To top it all off, Pixo also has a USB port on the base, so you can charge most any device on your desk or table!

Introducing Pablo Lighting at Switch!
We here at Switch are excited to announce that we have a new addition to our lighting family! We now carry Pablo Lighting!
“Pablo’s designs have been propelled to the forefront of American contemporary lighting by an uncompromising devotion to simplicity and utility. By fusing the highest technical sensibilities with the most appropriate material palette, Pablo is able to create unique, timeless designs with the power to transform any environment. Pablo was founded in San Francisco in 1993 by Venezuelan-born industrial designer Pablo Pardo. Embracing a less-is-more ideology, Pablo frequently challenges traditional design metaphors, developing more practical solutions distilled down to their essence, form and light. A common thread links all of its creations, valuing permanence and sustainability, discarding the disposable mindset so prevalent today. Its mission is to create designs that deepen the relationship between objects, their users, and their environments.”
