When we started 1001Pallets three years ago, lights & lamps were not the most common objects made from recycled pallets. But with time, some designers have taken this raw material to a new step, making beautiful lamps. Other people were then inspired to create their own. Thanks to their work, we can now feature a beautiful collection of lamps & lights made from repurposed pallets. Here is our personal selection of the 40 most fabulous pallet lights! Hope you’ll be inspired to make one by yourself.
And of course, do not forget to share your work with us once it’s done to inspire the next generation of pallet crafters!
