Rope Lamp Base


Just like it sounds, these lamps have a base that are made of coiled rope, and while you might not think they would fit into many decorative niches, they are quite handsome and very well-designed. They come with a shade but you can easily swap that if you desire, and each of these lamps can come in several rope colors to fit your decor. A great idea if you have a nautical theme.

Buying Guide

Given this material’s immediate association with knots and boats, it won’t come as a surprise that the best decorative styles for a rope lamp are coastal and nautical.

However, if you’ve already fallen in love with this style, don’t worry: you can still find ways of introducing it in other décors.

Just try and complement that rope lamp base with a lampshade that’s more similar to your actual interiors, either in color or design.

A rope base lamp will not fray as long they are looked after properly. Made with coiled rope and constructed securely, each lamp design has been crafted to stay in place, and most models thermally seal the rope ends or use adhesives to prevent fraying.

If you do encounter some fraying, there are ways to prevent it from continuing to unravel. One easy DIY way is to lift the fraying end of the rope and hold it away from you, then, using a lighter or a match, hold the rope around 5”-6” above the flame. Next, lower the rope down until the fibers begin to melt and seal themselves. This method only works for ropes made from synthetic fibers.

For natural fibers, wrap the frayed end tightly with twine. Then, gather the frayed ends and apply a spray adhesive to keep the fibers together.
