Wood veneer lamps are a great option that you can use with lots of different decorative styles. With their intricately sculpted shapes, they will add a touch of sophistication to your home, and help to create a more original look.

Yes, the unique quality of these lamps lies in the diverse forms they can take, which range from the spherical, to the animal, to the fantastic.

These lamps are made from interwoven natural fibers, such as wicker, bamboo, jute and rattan. They are made up of thin layers of wood, which is what makes them look more like sculptures than lamps.

What is wood veneer?

Veneer wood lamps have unique and original shapes.

Wood veneer is mainly used for aesthetic purposes, designed to be an attractive and low-cost solution. It involves sticking thin slices of wood to a large, flat piece of wood using glue or adhesive strips.

Combining these thin slices of wood with larger pieces of wood helps to give the material a “superior” quality. At first glance, it looks like a single piece of hard, strong, and high-quality wood.

Where can you find wood veneer?

Because wood veneer is very fine, it’s easy to manipulate, and can be used to create all sorts of different objects, from S shapes, to lamps.

As a result, wood veneer is commonly used in decoration, to create cladding, marquetry, doors, furniture, parquet flooring and various other decorative elements.

Wood veneer comes in two main forms. You can buy the slices separately, and then stick them to wooden boards or furniture, or buy it as plywood boards.

Veneer wood lamps often have intricate designs.

Objects made from wood veneer can look truly spectacular. Many of the lamp designs you’ll find on the market are made using traditional carpentry methods. In fact, you can actually find many companies specialized in the creation of sculpture lamps.

Ceiling lamps

Veneer wood lamps can come in all sorts of wonderful shapes.

Ceiling lamps look amazing in rooms such as the dining or living room. Of course, it’s important to think about the dimensions, so that you don’t buy a lamp that’s excessively big, or ridiculously small.

As for the shape, you have a wide variety to choose from. There are curved ones with a modern feel and really stunning animal designs. LZF has a huge catalog of designs to choose from, among which you can find the following models:

Wall lamps

Wood veneer wall lamps are commonly placed in hallways.

Wall lamps are usually placed in high-traffic areas such as hallways. However, they can also look great in other spaces, like for example porches.

Going for this last option will make your entrance way all the more memorable. The “Cervantes” model available at LZF is a really original option, but you could also go for other models, such as:

  • Pleg
  • Orbit
  • X-club

Floor lamps

Wood veneer lamps also come in charming animal designs.

Wood veneer floor lamps are one of the most exciting and entertaining options you can find. You can use them almost anywhere in your home (bedrooms, living rooms, entrance halls). LZF has two really charming models, one in the shape of an elephant, and another in the shape of a fish.

Table lamps

Table lamps can give your home an air of sophistication and originality. You can use them anywhere, from the table in your entrance hall, to the nightstand next to your bed. However, there are also models that you can place at floor level.

If you want a wood veneer lamp for your desk, you could go for LZF’s Asterisco model. It’s very useful for work, as it includes a lectern where you can place a book or notepad.
