Finding just the right accent for a child's bedroom or nursery can be difficult, but these upcycled animal lamps by Nishi Chauhan are perfect for adding a little zoo-like ambience. The lamps are created using old wine bottles that have been modified to hold a single bulb for soft illumination that is ideal as a nightlight. The animal-esque accents are created using wood and are adhered onto the bottle, which gives the simple fixtures a pop of playful life by transforming the ordinary glass carafe into the body of a zoo creature. While some of the designs are best placed horizontal, others including the giraffe and penguin are best kept vertical for enhancing the natural majesty that the animals have in real life.
