A lot of contemporary designers equate sheen with simplicity. They seem to be of the mentality that anything matte or with patina is excluded from all things contemporary. However, this lamp shows how simplicity of line and form, which is so valued in home decor, can come from even the most rustic of materials.
This lamp is made of reclaimed wood slats and makes use of metal straps and a barrel linen shade to bring a contemporary feel. The design is environmentally conscious without sacrificing beauty and would make a wonderful addition to any lighting design incorporated into a southwest, desert-contemporary or organic-contemporary interior.
