There is something about the delicate grain of wood veneer that I find mesmerizing. The strength of an enormous tree is whittled down to its gossamer essence — wood so thin that it can be bent and woven into stunning and delightful shapes.

Take these wisps of wooden warmth and bend them around a bulb, and you have something truly magical indeed.

2. So much to love about this design. A) You can make it yourself; B) Minimal supplies (i.e. money) needed; C) Shape limited only by your imagination; D) Did I mention you can make it yourself?? Woven Lamp (DIY with Bookhou), Poppytalk. $3.99 HEMMA IKEA cord set plus cost of supplies.
3. Airy randomness in a neat, constructed shape. Birds Nest Hanging Lamp, Serena & Lily $220
