Inspired by the swirls and whorls of seashells, the Nautilus is a contemporary floor lamp that hearkens to the romance of old world explorations. The shade is made of split bamboo, bent and woven together in a silhouette that spins within itself. The mahogany wooden stand lends a rustic undertone and the metal accents finish off the entire design. Details like the 360 degree neck swivel and a woven diffuser hinge add a sense of practicality to an elegant lighting piece.
