Ten years ago the idea of a knitted lampshade would have met with shock and horror. Not least because with the old bulbs it would have been a major fire hazard. But technologoy has moved on and so, it seems, has wool.
These lamps are from French site Les Petits Bohemes, but before you panic, they ship worldwide. Neither, as the name implies, do you need to be un petit boheme to like their stuff. I’m une grande, or even ancienne, and I love them.
The lightbulb with cable cord isn’t the newest lamp on the block but these cables are made with lurex. I know! Just a teeny hint of sparkle.
The furniture is on a slightly smaller scale so won’t necessarily translate into adult spaces but there are some quite cool decorative things that would bring a little je ne sais quoi to a space.
What do you think? The knitted shades start at around €140 (euros) while cords are €45. The giant letters, mirror and metal stars are between €100 and €110. But there are plenty of links to take you to specific items that may have caught your eye.
