Lighting a room is harder than it looks. And what do you do if your nursery just has an overhead light, and you want something just a little softer? La Lampe Paul, by Anne Monnier, attaches to the wall and adds some soft light to a child's room. Using a flame-tip chandelier bulb, the light is diffused through a tarlatane shade. Tarlatane is a starched, open-weave fabric - fans of Little Women may remember the girls wearing tarlatane dresses - and its open weave makes it a natural as a lampshade, casting a soft glow of light wherever it is placed.
La Lampe Paul comes with a set of 3 covers - either white, aubergine and tomato, or whilte, turquoise and green apple. Just $48.00 for one lamp, bulb, and cover set of your choice.
