Old household objects get a chance to shine once more when they’re fashioned into lovely light fixtures by Parisian designer Gilles Eichenbaum of Garbage. Pots, pans, forks, kettles, hats or phones; you name the garage sale item and Eichenbaum’s probably re-used it in his one-of-a-kind lamps. Quirky and fun, these lights will make for a wonderful addition to any home.
Eichenbaum first started making his charming lanterns during his travels, using his imagination to create useful objects out of limited but available resources – like making a lampshade out of a pot or a chair out of scrap wood. Eventually what started out as a hobby became a successful business as his artsy but useful lamps garnered interest from those around him.
We’ll even throw in a free album.
