At first glance, this appears to be a streamlined, contemporary, metallic lamp. But turn the light on and a subtle, yet beautiful python pattern appears! Light appears to dance upon the curved surface of the lamp, highlighting it and creating the illusion of texture. The shade softens and diffuses any direct light, creating a calming and yet striking ambiance. This lamp is sure to create a lasting impression in any organic-contemporary interior. We think this adds a delightful twist to any home decor!
