Button Wednesday : Even More Lamps

It is Wednesday again, so it's BUTTON DAY on my blog. It would be great if you could do the same; make your Wednesday a button day too. Have you seen a lovely, beautiful, stunning, crazy button or button-related thingy, or did you make something with a button / buttons, or did you even make buttons yourself, blog about it on your blog on Wednesday, and give the link here via Mister Linky at the end of this post.

I made already two Button Wednesdays about lamps (here and here), and this will be the third one :) But this time it's more about lampshades, and even some links for you to try it yourself. First (picture above) I want to show you a button lampshade from Tracey Kendall for Habitat (2006); this is the same Tracey Kendall I blogged about earlier to show you her amazing wallpaper. Her lampshade has small pearl buttons all over it, attached by kimble tags.

These three gorgeous lamps are from greca; they are called planet, sunset and tube. The sunset is my own favourite. Argentinian based Greca makes lots of other funky button creations too.

The next three lamps are from Israelian based design studio Mesila; they are all made from Sara Bookshpan's inheritance (sounds very much like my own inheritance....).

And here a list of DIY button lampshades:
