✚ Made by Ild / Ice Cream to Memphis pendant
Aside from being insanely cute, this lamp has the best name. Also, it’s made in part out of a bowl from IKEA’s 2013 TRENDIG line, which is just brilliant. (Made by Ild has another lamp made from a TRENDIG cup. Love!)
✚ Railis / Driftwood Block table lamp
Siberian driftwood turned into lighting in Iceland. OK! I really love this. I’d be happy to just having sitting on a table, even if it didn’t have a bulb in it.
✚ Sazerac Stitches / Mint Steel and Brass sconce
This beauty almost made it onto my list of sconce finalists, but I knew the color wouldn’t be right in my apartment. It would be so, so gorgeous somewhere else, though! The material combination is so pleasing.
✚ TwReborn / Origami Lamp Shades
Candy-colored folded cardboard. I’ve had my eye on these lamps for a long time, and I’d love to have the hot pink one hanging over my desk. With no included cord set, a relatively high price, and an item originating in Taiwan, you’re taking a bit of a risk, though… [UPDATE: Several people have commented and emailed about Dutch brand Snowpuppe’s beautiful origami lamps. Somehow Snowpuppe never crossed my radar until today, so I wanted to make sure to link to them in the post in addition to the comments—please check out their shop!]
I want to add an aside to this post, regarding something I tend to get into more on social media than on my blog. I spend an inordinate amount of time maintaining my Etsy lists. Every day I check to see what the people I follow have added to their lists, and then I look at all of the suggestions Etsy’s algorithms has made for me, and then the next thing I know, I’m down the rabbit-hole. And y’know, for all of the very legitimate criticism of Etsy’s policy changes regarding handmade goods and their enforcement of various policies across the board, I still love Etsy for the platform it provides to legitimate sellers of handmade and vintage goods. I’ve discovered so many awesome designers and artists through Etsy over the past eight years, so rather than focus solely on the problems with the company, I choose to focus on supporting the individual shop owners instead. Hence, my Etsy lists. OK, that’s all!
