Che figata FRIDAY! “That’s COOL” in Italian!

I recently came across these very unique lamps. They come from Borgo delle Tovaglie and are handmade in Italy. They are made with stacks of vintage books and beautiful linen shades.


They are part of their README collection.

or a lamp stand. Glue the stacked books together and paint them all one color, like the one featured below, for a unique and modern twist.

Che figata! Have a wonderful, warm and creative weekend!
