Announcing a new product line – Shoji Lamps

Playful Elephant Shoji Lamp

We are excited to announce that we just received our shipment of new Shoji Lamps from Thailand. For those of you that are not familiar with Shoji Lamps, Shoji’s literal definition is a screen made of a wooden frame with rice paper. In Chinese and Japanese, the word Shoji means “something to obstruct” and generally refers to shoji screen walls.

Shoji was actually invented by the Chinese, but the concept was imported to Japan between the 7th and 8th century. It wasn’t until the 12th century that the Japanese popularized Shoji as a form of artwork. Shoji paper is traditionally made from mulberry paper, but is more often found as rice paper in modern times. Our lamps use mulberry paper where leaves are imprinted and rice paper for lamps with printed artwork.

These lamps add a unique Asian touch to any room and give off a soft glowing light. They are also all priced under $30, so they are affordable too! They look great in a living room or even better on two bedside tables!
