Not quite the 70s | a macrame lamp…
I’ve been knotting like a woman possessed. It’s rare that I’m so determined with the making these days but I was super keen to see the lamp “become”.
We had friends over for drinks on Saturday night and I sat at the kitchen bench all night knotting and sipping. They were not mates of the making/creating variety and they couldn’t believe I would “waste” my time on such a nonsense. They were even more horrified to learn that the lamp was actually to be a gift!
Neon doesn’t photograph too well does it? But I can assure you it’s the most neon of neon pinks. I love it because while it’s certainly a nod to macrame it looks fresh and completely modern.
