  • i bought your lamp and i love it, BUT even though i used a very soft and dry cloth to clean it after we hung it up, just as you said in your instructions, the transparent part of it got scratched. is there a way to remove the scratches? they are many, but not deep, and they spoil the fun of looking at the otherwise beautiful lamp.
    thank you so much for any ideas.

  • Hej Mary!

    Please pardon our very, very late reply. Unfortunately our products are not yet available in the US but we hope to get them tested and approved soon. We are screening for a distriubutor as well and hope to make it overseas in the coming year. Ill wend you our catalogue and prices for Europe meanwhile,

    best regards


  • Please do let me know when your Favourite Things lamp is available for distribution in the U.S.

  • I REALLY do want this lamp. I’m decorating an apartment and the current lamp is horrible. I’ll even agree to have this rewired at my expense if you’ll send one with European wiring. Please let me know.

  • I would like the largets one that you sell. They have sevral at teh Mudan Museum in Luxembourg. I see from your comments that some manufacturer in California wants to be your marketer – I promise that if you ship me this lamp, which I will rewire, that I’ll help to sell them. It is just lovely, and I have coveted it since seeing it in Luxembourg.

  • Hej Mary,

    We are so glad to hear your enthusiasm! We are in dialoge with à few dealers in the us and hope we can make it soon. However, product testnings and liability regulations takes us some time to navigate, butwe are getting closer. But meanwhile you’d be. Most welcome to order from any of our retailers which shipworldwhite, eg http://www.slowfashionhouse.com or http://www.finnishdesignshop.com.

    We will keep you updated on any progress in the us, best regards and take care,

    Johan (Chen Karlsson)

  • Neither “Slowfshionhouse” nor the scandinavian design center will ship to the U.S. In the Mudan Museum in Luxembourg there were several sizes, as I recall. I truly am willing to have the lamp rewired here, if you could arrange to send the largest one you sell to the U.S.

  • Please tell me when your lamp is available in the U.S. I keep checking and nobody writes back to me.

    First of all, sorry for missing out your e-mail for almost a year. This should not happend our apologies.

    Yes, there is a way to “deep clean” the lamp and remove minor scratshes using a toothpaste as a mild rubbing. We will make sure to produce a tutorial on this and share here and on our facebook, so stay tuned. And again, sorry for this extremely late response!
