A new lamp + a kitchen update {The masterplan}

Last autumn when my new kitchen was just the size it is now and before I was so lucky to win the VT Wonen competition and getting a new floor for my apartment. I was still painting black walls and playin around with  paper and tape to see how the Bamboo lamp from Ay Illuminate I love so much would look in the kitchen. It remained some time and I took it off when it was getting colder and I wanted to burn some candles on the kitchen table....

I kept thinking about it and though it would not really fit, because my apartment has really low ceilings. Even though I changed it into a cute city loft with bare concrete walls and all ... I can't change the height of the rooms. But then I discovered there is a smaller version and it would perfectly fit my apartment.

So today I am so glad to be able to show you my little kitchen update... after dreaming about it for a long time.. it finally is there.... in my kitchen above the table being all pretty and different from any other lamp I ever saw... I love the light bamboo and the thin hand woven cotton from Ethiopia. It is so simple and therefor I love it !

In case you are wondering It is the Z4/Cotton cover (65 cm high) by the Ay Illuminate design team, being, Ay Lin, Mark Eden Schooley en Nelson Sepulveda. You can find stores and/or request a digital catalogue  on the Site of Ay Illuminate

I like the lamp - it gives your kitchen summer spirit ( and can imagine in winter was better without, with candles). I have same problem with ceiling, too low for such a light. Dont know what to have in the middle of living room - I am 180 and need to walk beneath :).What height are your ceiling? Maybe it can encourage me for some action together with your nice pictures.

Hoi Dees, ik lees altijd (vroeg of laat) je blog en wil nu weer eens een reactie bij je achterlaten. Wat is je keuken geweldig geworden, echt een Dees-sfeertje. Prachtig. En die gave lamp, die hoort daar helemaal. Kicken hoor, als je er al zo lang naar uitgekeken hebt.
Fijne dag!
Groetjes, Anita

Légère , style et simple. C'est une magnifique lampe qui a une belle place dans ta cuisine. Beau challenge car moi je trouve toujours qu'il est très difficile de trouver des lampes de plafonds.
alors bravo et belles photos aussi!

I really love your new, beautiful lamp!

That lamp is a great addition to your apartment! It seems so tranquil, almost Zen-like in its spirit. It also goes so well with all the white you’re using. Your lamp is giving me ideas now, haha! I have a Japanese-themed rectangular standing lamp in one corner of my living room here in my Hoboken home, and it’s feeling a little out of place. I think it would look great paired with a lamp that looks like yours.
