Hey, Home-Design Nerds — Here's How To Score This Not-For-Sale Folding Lamp

Some of the most coveted items in home decor have tags that are more along the "Price Upon Request"-lines than "What a steal!" However, there are more, yet, that are even more exclusive and hard to come by. For those who follow interiors religiously, you know about the Lumio, a portable light that folds like a book. Weighing just a pound, you can take it with you as a light on the go, and it lasts up to eight hours on a full charge. The only problem? You can only pre-order it for $125, and the expected delivery date of this magical device is just sometime.
Here's where Svscription comes in. The NY-based subscription-gift mailing service is including one of the first batches of the Lumio. And, all the products included in its "The Unexpected"-themed V6 box are part of a collaboration with industrial designer Sinclair Smith (which includes custom-made products of his as well). The Lumio is only available as part of its premium parcel, which retails at a hefty price of $559. But for all the hard-to-find stuff you'll find instead, it's worth it if you have the cash to drop. Sign up for your own box, here.
