About the Designer
An honors graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Rico Espinet started as a sculptor. His interest in objects soon evolved to installations in which the placement of the sculpture became as important as the objects themselves. Lighting was an integral part of these installations, defining space and heightening the overall experience. Rico Espinet features lamps and fixtures for Robert Abbey Lighting, Inc. that couples perspicuous line and warm, often atmospheric light into collections that affirm their environment. Drawing from his background in sculpture, architecture, and a fascination with the beauty of mundane objects, Rico Espinet's lighting is rooted in a generous vocabulary of form. Although Rico Espinet continues to extend his collection, his first designs are still classics. The Monk Lamp, originally fashioned with a microphone base and plumbing pipe, was a homemade reading lamp Espinet had made for himself. When a photo shoot by Todd Eberle of Espinet’s studio landed the lamp in both a House & Garden article and a Hunter Douglas ad campaign, Robert Abbey invited him to design a line to manufacture. The Scribe Lamp, influenced by the Monk Lamp was his first design for Robert Abbey Lighting, Inc.

I am so happy with this purchase. The lamp is absolutely beautiful. I have 12 foot ceilings in my apartment and needed a floor lamp that was a bit taller than normal, this one is perfect. The dimmer feature of a 200 watt bulb is a great touch as well. This lamp gives the room a really sleek and chic feel, I love it.

Perfect scale for our 11.5' vaulted ceilings. Loved it so much, we bought a second one. Dimmer switch makes it highly functional for multiple moods.
Gorgeous and high quality

I had been searching for a lamp for a LONG time. This is perfect in my living room, which has 11' vaulted ceilings. Beautiful and great quality. Dimmer is a huge plus.

The floor lamp and table lamp were listed as available from the Clearance Center[...]I am very happy with the minimalist look of these lamps. The ability to dim the 150W bulb is especially nice. I have not yet tried a dimmable CFL bulb. The floor lamp is quite tall, and the shade is oversized. It looks wonderful in my great room with 16' ceilings. The rating is for the product quality only[...]
