20 Cloud Lamps That’ll Fill Your Home with Flashes of Thunder

Clouds are the most beautiful creation of nature. They are mostly associated with weightlessness and emotions – whether happiness, sadness or imagination. Everyone tries to find their favorite character in them. They appear like white cotton balls drifting across the blue sky in slow motion. Continuously changing dimensions and forms make them a perfect source of inspiration for designers seeking out new design ideas. A lamp inspired by the fluffy form of clouds is a great example. 

The cloud lamps are a great centerpiece for any room. They are so beautiful that you will definitely end up buying or creating one. 

Here is a collection of some of the most awesome cloud lamps designed to bring flashes and peals of thunder to space. 

# How about a floating cloud Bluetooth speaker that can set your desk alight while playing your favorite music and floating in the air? It is designed by Richard Clarkson and Studio Crealev. The specialty of the floating cloud lamp are the built-in Bluetooth speaker and sound-reactive LED lights that deliver close-to-reality effect of thunder and rain. It uses magnetic levitation to float over its oval base. It costs $4,620.
