As a major coffee drinker (seriously, it's an 8-cup-a-day habit at this point!) I find these recycled coffee filter lamps from Lampada quite beautiful…
You read that right. Designer Vilma Farrell recycles used coffee filters into one-of-a-kind lamps. Talk about one man's trash being another man's treasure! While some lamps are given the earth-toned patterns of the naturally stained coffee filters, others are given additional color with vegetables and spices.
Check out Lampada's on esty for these styles and more.
