Are you ready to purchase a Moroccan henna leather lamp? Before that lets take a look at what is the specialty of the lamp and where does it come from. Firstly, let us understand what henna really is. Henna is a plant, which is used to make a dye. This dye is traditionally extracted from the dry henna leaves and used in decorative art. Henna is applied on hands and feet of mostly women as a decoration in various parts of the world. It is even used for decorating the hand of the bride in marriages in Northern India. In Morocco, henna is used for creating exotic designs for the leather lamps and lanterns. It is also known as Mehndi, in North Africa including Morocco, India, and the Middle East. It has traveled from all these countries to North America and is gaining popularity due to its subtleness, beauty and ability to be used in intricate designs.
Antler lamps also compliment many other rustic elements in home decorating. In the Northwest or \"north woods\" antlers may be added to snow shoes and complimented with rawhide lamp shades to use as fabulous wall sconces. The light colored wood and rawhide lacing of the shoe, combined with the leather binding and pleasant glow of the rawhide shade, make it a wonderful match. No matter if you decide to adorn your antler lamp with southwestern light rawhide shades or western style dark rawhide lampshades, the choice is yours and the effect will be stunning.
First of all, make sure that whatever lamp you buy, it goes with the style and ambience of your room. Buying a Victorian looking floor lamp for a house with a modern decor theme is a complete no no, even if you are getting the lamp at a ninety percent off sale. So take your time and choose a lamp that will enhance, rather than clash with the decor of your house.
Antlers are acquired in varying qualities that are valued like rare coins. The best quality is awarded an \"A\" grade. The grading system, indirectly, has to do with the how much time the sheds lie exposed on the ground before found. The longer they are left exposed, the more they break down. New antler sheds are dark brown in color. Sheds that are not discovered quickly will begin to bleach in the sun until they become a chalky white. Another reason they loose their value is because of chew marks from small rodents and stains from wet ground or moss.
The intricate patterns made by the joining of the metal wires create small \"windows\". Each window (panel) is lined with satin, silk or other beautiful fabrics. While quality domestic fabrics are often used today, many individuals choose imported fabrics similar to those in fine Victorian homes.
