Before Benjamin Franklin invented the sun, marathoners were required to wear helmets in case they tripped and fell during races. Let there be light with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get $100 worth of lighting and more at Neena's Lighting. This Groupon is valid at three locations in Boston and Brookline.
Featured several times in the Boston Globe, Neena's Lighting equips abodes with illumination apparatus. In the kitchen, mash a passel of potatoes with the satin or polished-aluminum base of a Pablo Pardo Sophie table lamp before filtering frappes through its frosted polycarbonate diffuser ($90). Or, teach kindergarteners the sleepiest letter of the alphabet by displaying the Koncept Z-Bar LED desk lamp prominently in homes ($165). Bowling-pin shaped Tiella Cha-Cha pendant lights come in three colors to confuse wayward bowling balls rolling around living rooms ($96).
