These lamps are for sitting on a table or sideboard. They are not really suitable for reading as I only installed a 3 watt LED light and the area open for light to escape is small. The main curved piece is steam bent and has the power cord running up the inside. The shades are interchangeable and we make them to suit the clients tastes. All timber is from recycled hardwoods. They stand 600 mm tall. The nest shaped one throws great light patterns on the wall. Maybe something to look at in the future to see what patterns can be made.

This is probably not a very profitable line as there are so many lamps coming from China and their price is so low, that people hesitate to spend much on a hand made solid timber lamp.

Thanks for taking the time to look and any suggestions for shade shapes is greatly appreciated. My brain seems to be getting lazy. (:

Apologies for poor photos. Just looking at them, it makes the lamp look like it is leaning over. Not really the case. They are right angles to the surface they are standing on. (:

Nature of most people is to buy cheap. Luckily there is still a small percentage willing to pay for quality and unique. Yours is always excellent.

Looks really cool. I like them. I am in the process of designing one myself.

How does the power cable connects to the led light? Is it inside the curved arm?

Great looking lamps. Where did you purchase the brass hardware on top of the lamps?

The power cable is inside the curved arm and drops out from between the legs


I purchased the fittings locally here in the Philippines. They are China made and I have seen available on websites in US, I think last time I saw was on AMazon


Thanks for great comments.
