THE REPURPOSED WOOD LAMP WITH
RED AND BEIGE PAPER SHADE

This one of a kind wood base is made from repurposed wood, a casualty of a home renovation in the neighborhood. After rescuing these discarded beams, the wood was given a new life with a thorough cleaning and sanding. The distressed and worn look of the wood was preserved using an organic wheat paste finish giving it a matte and natural feel.

The 8” round shade is comprised of 48 hand folded origami boxes made from Thai handcrafted paper. The boxes are assembled with an acid-free, liquid glue to create a strong permanent bond. A unique and beautiful pattern emerges when the boxes are assembled, accentuating the natural fibers of the paper creating a wonderful, warm glow.
