I just love these lamps. I love the unexpectedness of them. I love the feel and texture of them and I love the wit. Melanie Porter started out as a knitwear designer before deciding to set up on her own in 2008 and start making furniture. These lamps are just part of a range of products including chairs and tables. Each item is stripped back to its original frame, restored and then covered with a series of knitted panels. She does everything herself by hand so you are not only buying a work of art and a future heirloom but also a piece of furniture that you can use and enjoy every day.
One day I would like to have two Anya lamps in black and white as bedside lamps. In the meantime here is Melanie’s site for you to enjoy and dream over. Anya costs £400.
