it's a booby bird

it's a bird

Some months ago we were at Anthropologie in London and this Booby bird looked me straight in the eyes. Couldn't resist it's flirting and the bright colors of the lampshade!
Not exactly convenient, to bring a lampshade in your hand luggage, so we decided to ship this strange bird to the Netherlands.

Once at home, I found out it's a Booby bird from the Galapagos Islands. The lamp has six different birds around, this is our favorite but sometimes we turn another bird to the front. The lampshade is designed by Ashley Longshore and is called Archipelago Lampshade.


  1. Nice! It looks like a kind of lamp which will always give you a feeling of company. I like the determined look in the eyes of the bird :)

  2. Wauw prachtig! Dit is de grote ofniet?
    Maar wat heb je toch prachtige spullen, jaloers ;)

  3. Wat een geweldige aankoop!
    Staat super.

  4. Love this, which size is your lampshade L or M, and do you have any tips on where to find such a gorgeous lampfoot as yours?
