Swallowtail Lamp


Solid Wood Table Lamp with real wood shades lined with a hemp and silk mix fabric.


Product Description

This stunning table lamp will look great in your living room or on your bedside table.

The bases are made from a range of sustainable hardwoods including Maple, Walnut and ebonised recycled Mahogany (the black ones).

The shades are made from natural wood veneers with a natural fabric backing. I carefully selected the range of veneers from about 50 samples of different woods. The Red Gum gives a particularly dramatic “Sunset” effect when the lamp is switched on.


The height of the lamp is between 26cm and 30cm.
The diameter is 17cm.


I have so far only made them with UK electrical fittings. The SES (E14) lamp-holders are of high-quality brass. Please contact me if you want it made to order with other fittings. The lamps have been tested for electrical safety.


As wood is a natural material, the photo gives a very good indication of the appearance, but will not be identical to the one you receive.


Care Instructions:


An occasional dusting should be all the maintenance that is required. Treat them with the same care you would apply to all electrical products.


The unique joint that I developed for the centre of this lamp was originally inspired by the three-finned plant-stems that I saw in the tropical house at Kew Gardens. I originally used it for my unique table leg design before modifying it for this range of table lamps.
The shades were developed in response to being unable to find any that I liked elsewhere.
It is worth considering where the lamp will be sited. The maple one looks best on a slightly darker surface as I have shown in the photo. If it is to be kept on a light surface, the ebonised reclaimed mahogany or Walnut versions might look better, although to be honest, they all look brilliant everywhere that I have seen them so far.
