Tipsy Lamp

$85.00 $75.00

Turn your old bottles into an elegant lamp. Just invert Tipsy and it will automatically turn on by itself. Then simply dock it over the neck of any bottle and you have made yourself a lamp. The beauty of this lamp is that the shade of the bottle depicts the hue and intensity of the light that the unit will emit. In winter you might want to use an amber lamp to bask in a deep warm light, whereas in summer you might want a more tranquil turquoise light.

Hey, look what I found!


  • Simply ‘tip’ the unit to turn it on. When done, set it back upright and the light will automatically extinguish.

Salvaged Components

  • The pine in this piece is salvaged from local industrial skips and other assorted offcuts.
  • Small leather feet on the underside of the lamp base are factory scraps from luxury car manufacturers.
  • Some of the copper is almost always old salvage from around my own workshop or seconds from the local plumbing supply yard.
