The CB2 x Kravitz Design by Lenny Kravitz range takes references from the "sleek glam of the 1970s New York club culture and the natural ease of the California music scene of the 1970s," according to a statement.

"Our goal was to create a collection of pieces based on my personal style and the things that have inspired me throughout my travels," said Kravitz, who is better known for his work as a musician and has more recently starting building a career as an actor in films like The Hunger Games.

"Lenny is a weapon of massive construction," reads a quote from French designer Philippe Starck on the SLS website. "He is an exlposion of all talents, an unlimited boiling bucket of culture, a daily firework, a tireless explorer."

The bases of the Baba Table and Lola Table Lamp both look like upside-down wine glasses, but are made from a highly-polished metal.

"The development of this collection was a truly collaborative design process," said Ryan Turf, managing director for CB2. "Lenny Kravitz and the Kravitz Design team's sophisticated perspective helped create a collection that is both beautiful and practical, earthy and elegant, and a great complement to our CB2 aesthetic."

    I would have thought Kravitz could afford a decent retoucher to sort our that fur cutout!
