Since they are made from real branches, each lamp is different. Some are painted black and some retain the natural color of the bark. Depending on the size of the lamp, the branches are stuck on the cast iron or wood base, and there is a little red acrylic in the place where the branches and lampshades meet. All the lights have a woven red bending device like an old one An old-fashioned kettle extending down the branch, fixed with stainless steel fittings on the knot where the branch used to be. \"Looking for these things in the countryside is a good process,\" Holland said . \". \"Most of the time, as a furniture manufacturer, this is to find the perfect straight piece, but with these branches,- The more strange the better. \"www.
