in July, well at least on Etsy. Seems a lot of the vendors are having big sales and one that caught my eye happened to be Filigree Creations. The lamps and lampshades sold at this shop are really quite special, and I haven’t seen much out there like them (not for this price anyway!) They’re made from sewing thread and water based non-toxic glue. These contemporary designs are energy-efficient and seem to give off such a lovely glow. Take a peek at all of the different designs here.

What a difference..
Yellena James for Schoolhouse Electric
Amy Ruppel for Schoolhouse Electric
a small aesthetic change can make to a home. Found via Love & Victory’s Blog, these light fixtures from Schoolhouse Electric are statement pieces that can liven up a studio apartment – to a house in the ‘burbs. All of their products are handcrafted in the USA, and they collaborate with fabulous artists like Amy Ruppel and Yellena James. You can even checkout their production process on the Schoolhouse Electric Site.

More than just..
Deep Sea Lamp by Umbu
a lampshade, the Deep Sea Lamp is almost like a piece of art. Found over at Umbu, a very cool etsy shop that sells all kinds of unique lighting made from various handpicked recycled materials.
