When I bought, a metal mannequin for my studio, a lamp stand was the furthest thing in my mind. I used it solely to hang knitted bags and clothes.
Early this year, I decided to embark on creating a reading space with only things I love. Then, it occurred to me I could turn the mannequin into a lamp stand.
This inspiration, came from a show I had previously attended, that exhibited vintage stuff.
I could not source the right vintage fabric for my light project, I decided to use magazine pages, with vintage pictures and prints.
The paper was cut out and glued to the metal surface of the mannequin and the light installed.
I placed it in my reading corner and the rest is history...ENJOY
