Any nature buff will just love these LED Mushroom Lights by Japanese designer Yukio Takano of The Great Mushrooming. The synthetic funghi are constructed out of glass to look as if they are growing out of the found wood of logs and tree stumps. In reality, though, the custom-built lamps are meant to serve as creative illumination for any home. The variations in design mimic a variety of species and, just like many types of mushrooms, these are definitely not meant to be eaten!
The small lights consist of LEDs that are embedded inside colorful, wavy sprouts to create a soft glow of anything from pale blue to soft red to warm yellow. The playful creations are powered by batteries located in the base of the wood and can be flipped on and off with a conspicuous, retro switch that sits on the front of the structure. Each piece is packaged in a long, wooden box that appears to be aged and colorfully painted to complement the enclosed product. These are definitely a fun and unique way to brighten up any interior space!
