Vilma Farrell crafts rustic-looking lampshades out of a unique material. She uses recycled coffee filters to create everything from large ceiling light fixtures to tall floor lamps. By using this naturally stained material, Vilma Farrell is able to push the boundaries of lampshade designs.

Based in New York, Vilma Farrell is an Etsy user whose shop goes by the name of Lampada. Vilma Farrell was inspired by her native country, Brazil, which she describes as “a land of dark coffee, rich spices and muita alegria,” when designing her stunning lighting.

Vilma Farrell manipulates the coffee filters in a slew of different ways in order to create a variety of patterns. All of them form a mosaic and collage-like aesthetic.
