Wall Mushroom Lamps

Materials: 3x Hemma + Shades, cork coaster, screws, electrical tape,

Description: I’ve seen these lamps, three in a row, at a friend’s desk, and I liked it so much that I wanted to have them in my apartment.
However, I did not need a desk light, but new lights at the corner of the sofa.
So I crafted the following:

1) Remove the small rubber things under the bases.
2) Gouge holes in the lamp bases.
3) Cut the cables on the appropriate positions and connect the wires in the right way, so that there is only one switch to light all three lamps at once.
4) before I screw the lamps on the rack, I put small pieces of cork coaster between them and the rack, so they “stand” even.

  1. I would be careful with these as the shades are designed to exhaust heat out of the top and having them on their side may pose a fire hazard with the shades not venting as efficiently, might want to check if the shades are getting hot…

    I like. Now you just need an MC Escher print next to it. But perhaps not to let anyone fall asleep on that sofa after a drink or two too many, because that could be a scary wake-up…

    I think it would look better if they weren’t all the same height. Try different height poles next time.

    These climbing Lamps remind me of “The Exorcist”.
    I would say that in front of my mom or daughter.
    But i appreciate the effort- you made my day.
