Lamp and sofa

This is one of two lamps that I made for my wife for Christmas 2012. It is of black walnut (Juglans nigra), with a shade made of crimped heavy drawing paper. The six staves spread apart at 1.5 degrees, and are all of different lengths to add visual interest. The shade houses five compact fluorescent light bulbs, to provide bright light.

The end of the sofa that is in this picture is one that I made several years ago, also of black walnut.
