A brighter tomorrow

Since the weather is starting to brighten up I thought I’d go and talk to you about an interesting new product we have here at The Futon Shop: Eco-friendly lamps.

The lamps are made from various materials such as cocoa leaves, abaca rope, nito vine, and durian fruit fiber. They come in a variety of vibrant colors and shapes, including a gecko.

Cool huh? You can hang them on your wall to create a feeling of naturalism. It’s also a fun idea for your kids and to keep them away from all the chemicals present in everything else. It’s a little whimsical and silly for yourself as well if you want. You can imagine gecko friends who light up the room for you as you walk in.

From the leaves used as a covering, the light emitted is a calm, ambient, and soothing form of lighting. They come in a variety of colors and shapes aside from the gecko, if you are looking for something a little more decorative or require a little more lighting. Take a look at this one, sure to be a fine piece of commentary at your next social gathering:

Real fossilized cocoa leaves, bamboo base, hemstitched with natural abaca fiber and set to a strong wrought iron frame. Pleasing to the eye, and if you look closely at the leaves, you will notice each one is different from the next. These are not manufactured leaves that were made from a machine, these are real leaves pulled from a cocoa plant. One of the most decorative is this jellyfish:

Notice the little marbles attached to the “tentacles?” Each one a clear glass ball with a color swirl inside. The light coming down from the bulb create a glitter effect as they pass through each marble.

Personally, I like the blue colored lamps but with so many color choices you can pick the one that’s right for you. If you can’t decide, there are ones with several colors on it.

There you go, much more than futons, now you can get any of these lamps to brighten up your room as you rest on that favorite futon. Enjoy!
