Millefiori Lamp by Ilysa Bierer

When the weather gets warmer, we get more attracted to color. Maybe it is because we are so surrounded by colorful gardens, or maybe it is because the quality of summer light is so intense, but as soon as it gets warm, we start thinking about how to bring more colour into our home. Packed away in a closet we have some gorgeous Millefiori glass, brought back from Venice. But little hands and glass treasures don't go hand in hand. Luckily, we found an artisan using clay polymer to make some astonishingly good Millefiori products, such as this translucent lightbulb lamp. When turned on, the light glows through the Millefiori (translation: a thousand flowers), casting a colorful glow. And while we wouldn't trust the kids around Millefiori glass, we would be more comfortable trusting them around a polymer clay version. The Millefiori lamp is $500.00, but if that is breaking your budget and you still want to bring a little Millefiori into your home, Ilysa's ceiling fan pulls are a more modest $10.00.
