acorn by vasiliy butenko

Simple concepts often produce the most beautiful results. Designer Vasiliy Butenko created this Acorn lamp by wrapping cotton rope around a bottle. After the desired shape was formed, Vasiliy bonded all the layers and came up with a lamp design that has plenty of room for a bulb without an internal frame. I love using rope as a material around the house, so these are right up my alley. If you want to check them out in more detail or contact Vasiliy about ordering, click here for more info. xo, grace

    Wow! great concept, they look very beautiful in those colors, the black ones are my favorites. Thanks for sharing this! Have a great weekend!

  2. Very cute and chic design. I love to see materials that are normally considered ‘rough’ turned into something modern and soft. Also really like that the lamps are with out a frame! Thanks for giving a glimpse into how it is made too.

    There is also a company on Etsy that makes pretty cool rugs from old fishing gear
