Step Up Your Home Decor Game with This Lamp That Will Leave Everyone Speechless!

Are you looking for an ordinary lamp that just blends into the background or something that has the COOL FACTOR and will exude vintage industrial design with masterful engineering? This lamp will undoubtedly grab everyone’s attention and leave them in awe; personality, character, industrial style and soft Steampunk flair all in one. It has EVERYTHING!!! 

What sets this lamp apart from the rest is its unique backstory – it’s fusion of art, with a design that is both abstract and functional. This Colibri Cable Winder is based on the engineering marvel of the 1950’s Garrard No. 20 Gramophone motor. To think that such a simple mechanism was overengineered that it could wind cable on a boat? 

You need to ask yourself, who wouldn't want this beautiful lamp on their desk. Its attention to detail is unparalleled with natural surface pitting that adds an extra touch of character and personality. It looks like it was plucked straight from a vintage boat! Semi-polished Stainless-Steel construction, brass gears, mechanism, oversized G125 Filament globe, coated in clear lacquer and mounted on recycled timber decking, this lamp presents as a true trophy piece. And with the added bonus of being fully dimmable, you can create the perfect ambiance with this perfect touch of functionality.

I ask again, w
ho wouldn't want a piece like this in their home or office? Imagine the comments and questions you'll receive when people see this lamp in action. And with only one available, you'll be the only one in the world with this exciting piece of vintage history!

You can use either an LED globe or the pictured Filament globe (recommended). Personally, I think either work well and enhance the overall look and style of the lamp. What you see in the photos is my recommendation and will give a nice warm effect in whatever setting it's placed.
