The Dromod is our nod to where it all began in an old thatched cottage with a warm open hearth. Handmade from salvaged and storm-fallen timber, the classic and simple design of the Dromod heroes the natural beauty in the wood. With vintage style fittings and a retro style LED bulb, the Dromod lamp is a timeless and beautiful addition to any home.
The Dromod table lamp comes in a variety of woods and storm-fallen Irish timbers ranging from spalted beech to salvaged oak beams. Each lamp is unique, the colour, grain and finish of the wood will vary from lamp to lamp.
This particular lamp is made from Irish yew, salvaged from Co. Kildare. We believe this wood is somewhere between 600-800 years old. Yew was planted in graveyards many years ago to deter farmers from grazing their cattle because the berries are poisonous to cattle. Yew regularly develops flecks of bright red and purple. These colours develop over time and are due to the minerals in the soil where the tree was growing.
Each lamp is unique, the colour, grain and finish of the wood will vary from lamp to lamp. All our lamps are made by hand in our studio in Delgany, Co. Wicklow and each comes with a handwritten label describing its provenance.
