So I decided the manila rope covered cord design was just too cool to leave to the hanging lights in my shop: here is my line of rustic rope lamps that will sit, lie, lean – just generally reside quite happily on any relatively flat surface. Some such flat surfaces that I have found hold these lamps quite nicely are: desks, tables, dining tables, bathroom sinks, kitchen counters, toilet tops, bedside tables, porch tables, end tables, hallway tables, shelves, bureaus, old crates flipped upside down, sturdy cardboard boxes flipped on their side, well trimmed hedges with strong branches, windowsills, and any flat-topped appliance (microwaves, refrigerators, bread boxes, salad spinners (not toasters though)).
Based on my list above the average home- or apartment-owner would have use for approximately twenty-five of my lamps : ) I see that my description is now getting a bit out of hand, I really should stick to the basics like size and shape and color but it is 1:52am and when I get tired I tend to get wordy.
Anyhow I have painstakingly run 6' of standard rated lamp cord through a 40" length of 3/4" manila rope so that when placed on whichever surface you have chosen to place it on the cord itself won't be visible and the rope becomes part of the aesthetic! I've tried to photograph as best I can so I hope you can see how cool it really looks : )
A Ball mason jar houses a standard lamp socket that will fit whatever bulb style you prefer – pictured is a small neat shaped 25 watt spot bulb –included in the price – that shines a nice white light which brings out the color of whatever surface it's on.
I am a male and so wedding planning is not quite integrated into my DNA but I'd say these would make really great wedding decor for a Fall wedding. Don't tell my buddies I typed that sentence though ; )
