Our lamps come from Orient yet every model creates a different mood, from the very modern look of the transparent grape lamp, the elegant simplicity of the Noujem silver carved lamp, the pop touch of the colored glass lamp to the more oriental arabesque pattern of a brass carved lamp. Beautiful alone or combined, they always make the perfect gift for your friends or for yourself.
