Inspired by some small accent lamps designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the Dana House
outside Chicago in 1902. It’s a wedding present for my nephew AK and his bride Whitney
who were married last weekend in New Hampshire.

Another great lamp, H.

Did they request any specific colors, or was it totally up to you?

I realize you’ve based it off a century old design, but I wasn’t sure if they said something like, “please keep the red to a minimum.”

It appears to be a single bulb, yes?

I have been contemplating making a lamp similar to this one. But I haven’t been able to figure out what kind of translucent material people use for the shades. What did you use? What do other people use?

Have your say...
