The quarantine has brought out the interior decorators in all of us, some have invested in different home appliances, furniture, kitchen appliances, and even dinnerware to make our home life more pleasant. If you love quirky, cutesy appliances, then you need to check out these super cute Pampshades by Japanese artist Yukiko Morita.

Morita used to work in a bakery and fell in love with the simplicity of bread, but was also disheartened with the amount of bread discarded on a daily basis. She collects unwanted loaves and upcycles them into lampshades or what she wittingly named Pampshades: pan (bread) + lampshade = Pampshade.

The Pampshade comes in eight different designs with price tags ranging from ¥5,445 to ¥15,400 (P2,504 to P7,082). You may choose from the Coupe, Croissant, Champignon, Toasted Bread, Baguette, Batard (a shorter and wider version of baguette), Boule, and Petit Boule (smaller version of the boule) lamps. All of the Pampshades have a rustic vibe to it and the light they use is a warm yellow, which is perfect if you don't want harsh fluorescent lights in your room.

There are a lot of options to choose from, but Morita also accepts custom orders! You can request something more personal to immortalize as lampshades-perhaps your favorite Pinoy bread like pandesal, kalihim, or monay. You can even request a design that's perfect for shop displays.

Morita's love story with bread led to her super cute Pampshade creations, although not all of her creations are upcycled bread. She aims to further increase this practice of "rescuing bread" as a form of art which is why she also sells Nakami (contents). Nakami refers to snacks made with bread. It comes in two flavors: Pistachio and Parmesan Cheese and Black Pepper.

You can place your order via the Pampshade website. Yes, they ship internationally and have a few branches around the world.
