Aqua Creations, the brain child of Israeli designer Ayala Serfaty is a unique combination of beauty, functionality and art. Her work, which is heavily inspired by organic forms found in nature and undersea themes; is reflective of well known glass artist Dale Chihuly.
Ayala Serfaty’s silk collection is one of her most marketable lines, here she shapes the fabric to create these sculptural floor lamps.
IKEA Kulla Lamp
IKEA is a huge success here in Israel. The products, sizes and the overall look is a perfect fit for the customer and the country. I went there today to check for a few items that I have seen highlighted in the design world; most recently the Kulla Lamp shown here was featured in The New York Times style section. I did find the Kulla Lamp, table and floor standing; plus the hanging version shown below. By the way, none of these items are featured in the local online catalog, I found them in the American catalogue after I saw the lamp in the Times.
Lamps is located in the heart of Souk HaPishPishim in Jaffa and has possibly the widest selection of proper (and I define proper as in a lamp with something other than a paper shade) lamps I’ve seen in this country. I fell in love with the lamp below, with it’s green glass shade and brass base. I can’t even tell you why I like it so much, but I do.
The people who own the store happen to be positively lovely as well. The wife was very excited when I told her about Tchochkes and she turned on her favorite light for me to picture…
