Not just a pretty face, the gourd lamp may be able to bring a bit of good luck into your life (if you are a follower of feng shui).  Feng shui believes that a gourd will bring  long life and good luck into the lives of those who live in the house.  In ancient times, gourds were often hollowed out and used to store water or wine.  Buddhists would fill this gourd and leave it as an offering for the Gods, believing that the contents offered longevity and health.

Fast forward to modern times where various gourd shapes have been turned into lamp bases, available in every color imaginable.  You can choose from triple gourd, double gourd or single gourd styles.



As you can see from these photos, versatility is the name of the game.   The gourd style lamp is just as comfortable wearing a bright color or in a modern clear glass that really shows off the shapes and curves.  Casual and chic or sophisticated and elegant, the gourd lamp is sure to fit into any style decor.
