Nice design. A little bit of Japanese influence, I think.

Nice clean design with enough versatility to blend in with several different styles.

I think it works well in it’s current setting. Did you design it with that exact location in mind, or is that just how it turned out?

What sort of a switch does it have on it, or does it just plug into the wall?

Thanks for the comments. To answer some of your questions:

The lamp has an in-line switch.

The rice paper is from a lamp supply shop – I’m not where I can look it up right now.

The lamp was not designed for a particular location – I actually designed it to sell – it is now available at my web site Modern Homage

The last picture was in my living room – I just switched out the new lamp for an existing one for the picture.

The end table is one I bought, I did not make it.

Thanks again,
