For a “solar powered light fixture that's really cool-looking,” look no further. Stelle admires the unapologetically simple design of Luceplan's Solar Bud and the ease of simply sticking it in the ground. The little light measures 0.6 inches in diameter and 15 inches in height, and it automatically turns on as the sun sets. Luceplan, 212.989.6265; www.luceplan.com.
