Lustables: Mai Tai Lamp

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean the sun has set on your Copacabana fantasies.

This shouldn’t be too difficult to imagine: you on a white-sand beach sprawled out on a cabana chair holding a strong, fruity, pink beverage in hand.

Keep that picture in mind, and cherish it. You’re going to need it to get through the long, cold winter ahead.

Thankfully, artist Heather Wells invented the Mai Tai lamp so you don’t have to suffer through winter on fantasy alone. She created this lampshade out of tiny cocktail umbrellas collected from friends and restaurants. The umbrellas are coated in a protective resin, the tips dipped into phosphorescent paint, in case you need an all night reminder of music and passion.

Available exclusively from UncommonGoods for $58.
