Pineapple Wall Sconce from Caravan

  Shop_pineapple2

We've featured quite a few pineapple inspired home accessories and this Wall Sconce from Shoreditch boutique Caravan is unlikely to be the last thanks to the kitsch appeal of this tropical fruit.

The pineapple takes centre stage, flanked on either side with an elegant candle holder. The metallic brass finish is particularly well set off by the turquoise candles pictured above. Measuring a substantial 52cm x 42cm x 15cm it would make a great feature for a retro lounge or hallway.

The Wall Sconce is yours for £89 - if you can't make it to the shop then you can buy it here.
