We’ve been lucky enough to find some really amazing lamps from Thailand that are manufactured using natural and sustainable materials. Inspired by nature, all of the lamps from this collection are hand-made, making each piece extremely unique. No two are the same yet you could easily create an incredible organic look using a pair.
The new Trenton lamp has a great story behind it too. The base was handmade and originally used as a mortar in the rural villages of Thailand, for grinding herbal medicine, spices or baby food. The traditional wooden Thai mortar actually dates back to the 1800’s. The Trenton mortars have been cleaned and hollowed further to accommodate the lamp fixture.
