I have always thought that IKEA’s lamp are really handy and well-designed. However I prefer warm light than the cold one provided by the usual bulbs.
Therefore I decided to pimp my Varmluft lamp a bit:
– I, first, glued some silk paper that I got from a cloth shop (supposed to protect them)
– Then, I made some cranes and other origamis. I attached them thanks to a sewing set offered in hotels as amenities.
I paid an extra attention to place them in an aerial way so it gives lightness to the lamp.
– There you go. Colorful, cheap, warm and unique pimped lamp!
