Located at the southeastern corner of the Drum and Bell Tower, Legend of the Wooden Lamp designs and produces handmade wooden lamps.

If you're getting tired of the ubiquitous deluxe crystal chandeliers and modern paper lamps, these vintage wooden light fixtures will add a distinct, stylish, rural touch to your decor.

The designer incorporates traditional culture in the design and each lamp has a theme, including black gauze cap shapes (as in the caps that ancient Chinese officials wore); Qing dynasty copper coin-inspired designs, antique bell lamps; and double-happiness character lights.

Prices range from RMB 69-250. Made to order lamps are also available, although prices are slightly higher.
