I love the warmth of timber and its natural quirks and imperfections, so these Australian hand turned lamps from Wildwood Designs really caught my eye.
“Each piece is unique to us and has been lovingly hand turned by our local wood turner who was thrown out of TAFE on the first day of a wood turning course because he turned up with a telegraph pole,” laughs Wildwood’s Juliet Barr.
“He went home and made his own lathe and cutting tools and our amazing lamps and stools are the results.”
They don’t just make lamps; also tables, beds, bookcases custom furniture and more, from Sydney’s Alexandria.
Aren’t they gorgeous?
