DS Advent Calendar, Day 22: Relic table lamps

Dated Posted: December 22nd, 2011

Written By: Leila

I think advent calendars are supposed to go to the 25th, but since we’re closed on the 24th and beyond I guess this is our second-last entry! Today’s pick is interesting: more modern than most things in our store, but a really great pairing of old and new:

These sleek, simple lamps use our antique tiles for bases. Beautifully-patterned floor tiles are a hallmark of North Africa and the Middle East. Culled from flea markets in Cairo, these well-worn concrete tiles are given new life with a modern shade, but still they remind us of sipping sweet mint tea in a bustling bazaar. Relic table lamps, $225 each.
