On our trip to Japan in October this year I managed to source some beautiful Japanese fabric. Here are the two lamps that I have upcycled using this fabric.
The first lamp is called Hatome Oriental lamp. I had this vintage wooden lamp base for some time and have been looking for the right fabric to go with it. When I finally saw this wonderful thick cotton fabric in Tokyo I knew it would be perfect for the lampshade. I added some decorative cotton trimming to the edges for an additional visual impact.
I love the combination of red and turquoise, don't you? It is so uplifting.
The second lamp is called Hatome Happy Lamp. It has off-white vintage wooden base which originates from the 1970s. I upcycled the lampshade with this colorful cotton fabric which I could not resist when I saw it in Tokyo. It makes me smile every time I look at it.
It seemed appropriate to finish this lamp with red pompoms so that nobody has any doubts about how serious it is ;)
