When the lights shimmer and sparkle in the dark, it looks like a starry sky or a swarm of fireflies. The light is decorative but also soft and comfortable.

My MIL loves it!KimberlyMy MIL loves it!5
Really beautifulVALERIEI saw this and was contemplating because I wanted to check how it would look in my bedroom. The recent drastic 25% increase was shocking though5
Hovnas Table LampSandra F.Update to my feedback earlier today so other customers are aware. I was able to figure out the assembly. When matching the two parts of the lamp together, ensure the tabs at the bottom also slide over each other and lock in place allowing for the bottom portion of the lamp to fit into the base. The instructions provided to customers needs to be enhanced; otherwise product is beautiful.4
Hovnas Table LampSandra F.The assembly instructions are complex with only photos. The two pieces that make up the lamp do not fit together flush at the bottom to allow the fitting into the base. I called customer service and they were unable to assist. Appears I will need to return due to a defect. Disappointed1
Beautiful lamp setAdrianaGoes perfect with the floor lamp as a set, and is a lot brighter than expected!5

Love the LampKaren B.Great lamp. Well made, easy to put together5
Very affective and very prettySparkle04Very affective and very pretty very modern looking5
My Favorite lampLoopsmiffI collect unusual lamps, and I absolutely love this one for how different and spectacular it is. I got the last one in the store now I have to wait for them to stock the floor standing lamps so I can get one to match it. The dimmer works but is hard to find. You must tap the edge of the base to turn the lamp on or off and hold your finger steadily on the edge of the base to make it go brighter or dimmer.5
Looks wonderfulCrys365This is the 2nd of this lamp that I have bought. I absolutely love the way it looks and it is perfect for a side table in a corner.5
Stunning look!Ginny22I placed this beautiful lamp in my living room and it’s just perfect!!5
Really different yet awesome!iMomIt's a really modern looking light, like a bouquet of light, and I love the light that it gives off. I don't generally like modern, but I would buy this lamp over and over. It's perfect next to the bed because of the touch on/off & touch dimmer. It's not the brightest light, but compared to my previous small bedside lamp w/LED bulb, it's probably the same amount of light emitted. It doesn't seem like it because it's a different type of lamp with multiple small lights. The light reaches different areas of the room differently than my previous typical lamp. I would probably not want this as a reading lamp but I don't read in bed so that's not a problem for me. If it were less expensive (which it probably should be), I would buy more. But I am very happy I spent the $ to buy at least one.5
Replacement lightsMarca lvI would like to purchase 6 additional lights to have on hand in case lights go out or break. I purchased 2 table Hovnas, and they totally transformed my room. I love them. I just purchased the floor lamp and am thrilled with it!!5
Good Looking. But Very expensive for the product.Vignesh AVery Expensive but good looking. For the product material and built $69 is too expensive.3
Beautiful lampkoolkixsSimple to set up, the light is gorgeous! Took a bit to get used to the way it dims and brightens. Accidentally turned it off when I was trying to dim the brightness. Love the soft diffused led light tips. We use these lamps as our bedside table lamps.5
A little tip for those with dimmer trouble...SVT09I just purchased 2 of these today and love them, but I to was having some issues with the dimming feature as others have mentioned. After some trial and error, I figured out how it works, and thought I would share. Press and HOLD your finger on the ring, and watch as the light gradually gets brighter. Then, if you want the light dimmer, just press and hold your finger again and it will dim the lights. Hope this helps!5
Very CoolHongkongjohnThese lamps turned out to be better than expected. Easy to assemble and brightens & dims with minimal touch. Very good quality for the price.5
HOVNÄS Table lamp, chrome plated

HOVNÄS – for the love of light

Humans react instinctively to different sparkles and glows. This we know. But the scientists can’t really pin down the reasons. That’s why we think you’ll like the HOVNÄS lamp – but we’re not exactly sure why. We guess sometimes, you don’t need all the answers.

When working on HOVNÄS, we brought in Daniel Hodierna to learn more about this fascinating area. He’s an award winning lighting designer working with ÅF Lighting in Sweden. “Certain characteristics of lighting do evoke different emotions,” says Daniel. “But there’s been no real solid scientific way of researching that.” The first time Daniel saw the HOVNÄS lamp, he was reminded of fireflies dancing above tufts of grass. He noted the sparkle and brilliance of the bulbs, thinking people would find them exciting. He shared his insights about the human connection to lighting.

Light that mimics nature

We learned that UVB rays from sunshine enable our bodies to create vitamin D, for instance. And, certain hormones we produce, like cortisol and melatonin, are affected by light too. What we can’t really measure is our emotional response. “Most people look up and go ‘ooh, ahh, wow’ when they see fireworks,” says Daniel. “It’s a natural thing to be drawn towards flashes of lights and sparkles.” But why?

An emotional connection

“It is a connection with nature. Sometimes you cannot explain it in this modern world, but it makes you feel good,” says Elin Wrengler Dias, an IKEA product developer. “HOVNÄS is like static fireworks that are always on,” Elin continues. “There’s something with this sparkly object that adds to the atmosphere and ambience of the room. It just makes you feel at peace. It’s very relaxing and soothing to see a lot of small lights.”

What is steel?

Steel has unique characteristics when it is stretched and shaped since it remains strong. It provides strength to everything from skyscrapers and cars to bed frames and outdoor furniture. The steel industry is moving in the direction of more energy-efficient production and stronger steel qualities. It doesn’t lose any of its properties when recycled and today steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world.
