I do enjoy things that are not what they seem – especially when it comes to interiors. It’s more fun that way. Browsing through French site Cachette the other day I came across several delights in the lighting department so we are going to have ObjectS of design because I couldn’t choose just one.
At the top are these unusual origami paper lights which just add a little more sophistication to the humble paper light. But look at these above- paper ceiling roses, which is a great idea for anyone whose house has been ripped apart by developer’s and careless owners over the years… There was not a single ceiling rose left in my house when we moved in and they cost a fortune to replace. These, which cost €19 and come in several colours, are a great alternative.
Then I found these. A beech pole, which you simply lean against the wall and then you choose from 18 different colours of felt for the shade. You can then move the shade up or down the pole depending on where you need it to be. Good news – the flex is material (which is my current obsession) bad news – it comes with a French plug but that’s not the end of the world I’m sure.
Finally, this just amused me. Called the Pretend light it’s a material bulb that glows in the dark. Fun for a kid’s room perhaps.
