How many times have you looked for something in a dark corner of your apartment and hit your head on the edge of a shelf? Probably more than you can count. Alex Allen Studio's Lightbrackets solve the problem (plus a few others) by doing double duty as a lamp and a weight-supporting mount for shelves.
The brackets are powder-coated steel with an LED strip and a colourful cord. Each bracket is $US195, and shelves are not included, but you're basically paying for two different things. And hopefully, they'll help you avoid an otherwise inevitable headache. [Alex Allen via DesignBoom]
