Graham and Green Pineapple Lamp Base

Screen shot 2011-01-16 at 22.04.27

No home with kitsch ambitions can be without an ornamental pineapple of some sort. Ever since Columbus bought them back from the West Indies, the pineapple has been a symbol of all things exotic and the luxurious Polynesian-themed tiki bars that popped up all over the US during the 1930s wouldn't be the same without being adorned by the fruit.

This Pineapple lamp base from Graham and Green in antiqued silver is stylish modern take on the mid 20th century tiki exotica trend, meaning you can save the real pineapples for garnishing all those rum drinks.

The lamp is £95 from Graham & Green. Find out more from the website.
