Cocoa Leaf Cylinder Table Lamp in Natural & Wrought Iron by Eangee Home Design
Eangee Home Design 615-T-N Cocoa Leaf Cylinder Table Lamp Natural Wrought Iron
Fossilized cocoa leaf lampshades. Light made from chocolate? Not quite, but the cocoa leaves used for these lamps are collected from the same plant chocolate is made from. Fossilization is the process of drying leaves over a three to four month period and then hand rubbing the chlorophyll off the leaf so only the leaf's skeleton remains. This is a labor-intensive process and no corrosive chemicals are used. Once the chlorophyll is removed, the leaf is stained in organic dyes. Since the leaves are natural, each one will absorb dye differently. The resulting effect is a lamp with different hues and shades (sometimes within the same leaf). There are a few cases in which the leaf may have a small tear before it was adhered to the lampshade; due to the low-impact sealant we use, no tear will increase in size nor will any leaf pull from the shade. We would like to point out that only 20 percent of the leaves make it through the entire process for use for our shades. Once the leaf is stained, it is adhered to a heat resistant backing; similar to the backing found on any standard lamp. The artists cut each leaf to ensure that no leaf will overlap. Finally, we use a strong sealant to ensure the stability and integrity of the shade. The frame is constructed from wrought iron, which makes the lamp very strong and durable. Then the lamp is powder coated in order to ensure the longevity of its color.
Bulbs Required: 1. Access: Reach through the top to access the bulb. Eangee recommends light bulbs based on heat, not by light output. We recommend using either compact florescent light (CFL) bulbs or LED bulbs. These will provide the same amount of light but use less wattage and produce less heat as compared to a standard incandescent bulb. The lower heat will help ensure the longevity of the lamp. If you use an incandescent bulb, we suggest a maximum of 40 watts.
If cleaning is required for Eangee lamps, we recommend using a dry cloth or duster. We do not suggest liquid cleaners. We do not recommend placing your lamp in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
