    Thanks for noticing that treasure. It's a vintage lamp, I'd guess 1970's. It twists in the middle of the column to turn on the bulb. We put a new shade on it to go with wonderfully odd lamp, kind of a riff on "Lighthouse" look.

KanthaKantha is the name of a particular type of decorative embroidery popular in India and Bangladesh. But when you hear about kantha today, it is usually in reference to kantha quilts, textiles made using the kantha stitch.

6. Use lightweight kantha quilts. Kantha is a type of stitching used to piece together bits of old fabrics to create beautiful new blankets like the ones here. Made mostly in Bangladesh and India, kantha quilts can now be found in many large shops and on sites like Etsy. These lightweight quilts make ideal bedspreads in warm weather — layer one over a blanket on cool spring nights and use it alone in the dog days of summer.

Tapestries instead of heavy bedspreads. Or all whites and creams to go with wood

The scraps of sari fabric are cut and pieced together, often in exciting color combinations, and stitched together using the kantha stitch, a form of running stitch that uses the quilting thread as a decorative element.

Kantha textiles can also be used to cover pillows, poufs and other small furnishings.

Sort of a tropical colonial vibe?
