How It Works
The Silk Flame Lamp Unit
This standalone unit is the heart of all of our Flame Lamps. It can be purchased separately here, if you just want the flame-making element on its own (e.g. to bring to life an unused fireplace), or it can be purchased complete, housed in one of our expertly crafted lampshades as part of our extensive Silk Flame Lamps range.
The magic of the Silk Flame Lamp Unit comes from the combination of the following key elements:
The fan acts to both cool the bulb and to provide a constantly fluctuating flow of air. This allows the Silk Flame to stand up and forces it to eternally flicker and dance, catching the light in an ever changing fire-like display.
We are now fitting a virtually silent fan, which is barely audible at all. The new quiet fan means it won’t disturb your cosy evening, as it flickers away silently, warming your hearts with light.
The Silk Flame Lamp Unit and all the models in which it is used, come fitted with a specially designed multi coloured lens, which is deep flame red in the centre, blending into amber and yellow at wider angles. This gives a variation in colour shade to the flame, as it flickers in and out of the different colours of light from the bulb, rather than having a single, flat colour. The effect produced, imitates a real fire surprisingly efficiently.
The Silk Flame
Two sheets of yellow silk, cut into the shape of a flame are attached to the bulb, one on each side. This gives an all-round visual effect. As the air from the fan blows past, the light flowing silk material flutters easily in the wind. As it dances, it catches different shades of colour from the specially designed bulb. This provides an ever changing, multi coloured realistic fire-like display.
It is difficult to replicate the organic, ever-changing, multi coloured effect of fire, but we feel that we have done so surprisingly well. These really do have to be seen to be believed.
Flame Lamp Variations
A superb, rustic collection of warm Silk Flame Lamps, housed in shades of bamboo, rattan, twine and other natural fibres. These are our most popular range and you can see why. They bring a stunning earthy, natural warm atmosphere to any space.
These Lamps are housed in a round metal shade, with carefully designed acid-etched patterns carved into them, to allow ornate glimpses of the fiery world inside and to cast an intricate dancing pattern of light on surrounding walls.
Perfect for bringing an old, unused fireplace to life. The flat front imitates a traditional fireplace appeal, with superb patterns acid etched into the face, to allow the fire to shine through and bring a touch of character. The round back catches the light from the single flame and spreads it out, to fill the whole width of the fireplace lamp. This really does give the impression of a full and toasty fire.
