Story Behind the Art:

Artisans Orlando Paez and Mari Del Pilar Martinez create these beautiful lamps out of Raquira, Colombia. Guadua is a strong and resistant natural material from Quindio. The Guadua must be cut once a month before five in the morning in the waning moon, because that's when the water inside goes to the bottom and it's at its driest point. The fabric has been chosen for its flexibility, durability, non-shrinkage and easiness to wash, as well as the pyramid shape being a symbol for universal energy. There are 30 total artisans that help create these lamps.

With the money collected from the Worldstock orders Orlando has been able to send his daughter to school to continue her studies as well as English courses.

  • Sioux Lamp

    This lamp is very unique, a great conversation piece, looks very stylish and nicely lights the area it is in. I have received alot of compliments from everyone on this. Although great looking, there are a few things that I did not like about the product. When you first open the box, there is a very very strong smoky smell coming from the wood. This starts to diminish after a few weeks, but is not very pleasant. Also, be careful putting it together as the stain used on the wood can easily rub off onto the fabric shade. The first lamp I received had a bad electrical cord, but Overstock was just great and took it right back, the second one worked just fine. The lamp is a little pricey, but I would definately recommend it.

  • Sioux Lamp

    I shop on Overstock.com all the time, and I must say that when I saw this lamp I was amazed by it and skeptical and the same time. I ordered it anyway because I am an artist and I love unique things. Once it arrived I fell in love with it and the craftsmanship. It was easy to put up, my husband and I put it up in no time and really the instructions were not needed, the lamp itself was explanatory. There were no smears of the wood or an odor. I would highly recommend this item to anyone who is interested in unique things.

  • Nice Lamp

    Overall very pleased with this lamp. Assembly directions are pretty much useless, but once you throw them away it gets much simpler. You also will want to use no more than a 40 watt bulb for the best lighting appearance.

  • lamp

    I look for unique lamps and this one tops them all. The lighting is just perfect to offset the room.I chuckled when I saw the rudimentary "how to" instructions, but once you read them, it was easy to put together. Though i was afraid at first to stretch the wood - I can see now how strong it really is.....still be gentle but don't be afraid to stretch it a bit. This lamp is absolutely a beautiful accessory.

  • So Beautiful

    I saw this on line at Overstock and read the reviews before buying it. I got a little nervous because some of the reviewers said that the lights work, then one didn't or it didn't work at all.First of all, I love this lamp. It's so exotic and when you have it lit up, it's really just beautiful.This is what I have discovered and must share with you... After I set it up, I put a light bulb in each end. Plugged it in and it didn't work. My heart broke and I said.....I guess I got the one that didn't work and was ready to send it back. My husband had a thought. I originally put in GE Reveal bulbs, they didn't work....we then put in Philips DuraMax and it works fine. He had this thought because our outside light by the front door wont work on a Reveal Bulb, only the Philips. So if you get the lamp and it doesn't work, try a different bulb and bulb maker. Something about the threads on the Reveals that don't seem to jive right with certain sockets.

    Some of the stain from the wood shows on the fabric very slightly, but I get so many compliments on this lamp and I love it.

  • Not what I expected

    I could not put the lamp together, the pieces did not fit in the slots. Wood looked and felt plastic. Canvas was stained. First disappointment with overstore. Will continue to shop with O.

  • Buyer Beware

    Owned/used this lamp for a little over a month. Top marks for looks, but cheap/shoddy craftsmanship. The mid-section of the bamboo pole split vertically some time after it had been in use (dried out? heat? who knows). The on/off switch MELTED(!!) 4 weeks in, rendering it inoperable. I guess I can count myself lucky it didn't start a fire. I'm going to attempt to return it, although due to his size/construction I don't know how I'll ship it back since I no longer have the box it came in! If you purchase this lamp, please keep an eye on the on/off switch after every use to ensure it does not become a fire hazard.
