It's hard to decide upon lighting for home; either it's too designer or too expensive or Ikea is out of stock. These lamps were seen at the London Design Festival, via Inhabitat and who could resist them. They look like a Chinese parasol or a sunburst radiating from the ceiling.

Called the Yhi Pendant Lamp, after the Aborigine Sun Goddess, each lamp is made out of 100% recyclable, plantation-harvested plywood and comes as a flat-pack.The lamp shade is 'turned' from laminated kiaat, a South African hardwood, and the stand is made of black powder coated steel.

The beauties above were seen in Paris. Made out of 100% recycled paper, they are macrame, which has never looked this good before.

The Vuvuzela lamp continues the World Cup spirit. Discovered at the London Design Festival, it's a memory of the newly discovered horn and South Africa's (loud) games.
