An original Om Gallery design, this unique Asian-inspired lamp combines a modern and Deco feel with its obvious ethnic look. Handmade by personal friends of the Om Gallery and constructed with fine taffeta silk by skilled Vietnamese craftspeople, our exquisite lamp represents a one-of-a-kind creation. As with all Om Gallery products, this item is made with the highest fair trade principles in mind. Typically emerging from the depths of muddy swamps and ponds into the nourishing sunlight, the blooming lotus is said to represent the individual progress towards enlightenment. Om Gallery has taken this ancient symbol of harmony and turned into a stunning silk table lamp. Made with a durable steel frame, high-quality silk and perched on an ebony wood base, the Om Gallery Silk Blooming Lotus table lamp is the perfect complement to any room in the house.
