Made In The Shade

Transport your favorite nook to the tropics with Heather Wells' festive, cocktail-inspired nightlights. The shade is made from tiny cocktail umbrellas, which she collects from friends and restaurants. She coats them in a protective resin and dips the tip of each one in phosphorescent paint, so they continue to shine like little stars once the lights are turned out. Shade handmade in Massachusetts; nightlight base and components made in China. Treated with a fire-resistant seal. Requires 5W bulb, included.

Sold separately.

Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary slightly.
Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Made in

It began as a project in her senior year at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2002, but creating her unique and colorful lamp collection soon became Heather Wells' full-time job! Using drink umbrellas collected from friends and local restaurants, each of Wells' handmade creations is truly a one-of-a-kind piece. Heather had so much fun designing and handcrafting these lighting fixtures, she couldn't help but make it her calling.

    Comments about Drink Umbrella Nightlights:

    I use this nightlight in the kitchen above our countertop. I've got a few compliments on it. I don't use it daily which is a good thing because it is kind of hard to get your finger up in to turn it on. I would imagine if I had it lower on a wall it would be very hard to turn on and would require you to do so slowly and carefully so as not to damage the bottom of it.

      My new nightlight is just so colorful with unbrellas, pinks, greens, and blues shimmering through out the room. I just love it! Even when I turn it off white lights remain to show me the way. It lights up my life!! Thank you. Syndney S. Fulford

          I get lots of compliments on it--very unique, but it's easy to break and the shade doesn't stay on the light very easily.

            Comments about Drink Umbrella Nightlights:

            We use this in our front foyer, to guide us upstairs after we've shut off all the downstairs lights to go to bed--and for mid-night emergencies. Because of its prominent placement, I wanted an unconventional night-light (no kiddie cartoon characters or naked bulbs) and this one really fits the design bill. The green/blue colors work with our decor and its beautiful when illuminated. My only complaint is that the on-off switch is hard to reach and I can see the front/center umbrella edge becoming bent by the reach of the fingers to reach the switch.

            Not what I expected

                Comments about Drink Umbrella Nightlights:

                Two issues:

                First: I could not find in the description anything about which color combination is Lagoon and which is Paradise. I made the assumption that Lagoon was blue and Paradise was orange when I ordered. I was wrong-Paradise is the blue one (I meant to get the orange one).

                Second: there is no mention of the size of this nightlight. Although perhaps it should have been clear to me from some of the pictures, it quite a bit bigger than the average nightlight (and the the two others I bought), so if you have limited space or wish for something a bit more subtle, this is not the nightlight for you.
