1. A lamp
© Jolie Place With its ultra-graphic braiding, caning is a sensation when used on a luminaire. Delicately filtering the light, it creates a subdued and poetic atmosphere. The good news ? The cane is so easy to handle that one can imagine it as a lampshade of a suspension or an auxiliary lamp. We had a crush on the simplicity of the cane lamp by Jolie Place. But we can not resist the Art Deco look of the creation of Be Frenchie either. Without forgetting the feminine version of Mamie Boude who had the good idea to customize her canework auxiliary lamp, by adding a few colors using woolen threads.
