Bubble lamp / Lampa ‘babelkowa’

I have always loved bubble lamps. They look so light, airy and magical – an absolute stunner in any space. The bubbles can be perfectly round, and the arrangement geometrically perfect, as here:

…or it can have slightly uneven bubbles and be more messy in arrangements, which makes them all the more natural-looking:

So imagine my excitement when I went to this Homebase-style shop in Poland and found this gorgeous chandelier:

I loved it, I checked the price, I could not believe it, I confirmed it with a shop assistant (as surprised as I was), and I bought it! Look how stunning it looks in this arrangement from a designer house:

Since it’s pretty long (80cm) and will probably end up over our bed.

Or the coffee table in the living room.

Or the dining table.

… no, I’m definitely not one of those who never change plans for their interiors.

Od dawna uwielbialam ‘babelkowe’ lampy. Te regularne, jak z dwoch pierwszych zdjec – ale jeszcze bardziej te z ‘niedoskonalymi’ kulkami wzmacniajacymi efekt recznego wykonania, do tego nierownomiernie rozlozone na plafonie z halogenami.
I, o niebiosa, znalazlam taka lampe w sklepie budowlanym – i to w takiej cenie ze musialam oczy przecierac, po czym szybciutko zlapalam za fraki pania sklepikarke ktora musiala sie wspiac na wieeeeelka drabine po moja lampe – no i jest🙂 Zobaczcie jak pieknie wyglada w Domu Koncepcyjnym 2009 przedstawionym na Apartment Therapy!


Z powodu rozmiarow (az 80cm dlugosci) zawisnie pewnie nad lozkiem.
Albo nad stolikiem kawowym w salonie.
Lub tez nad stolem jadalnym.


…nie, zdecydowanie nie jestem jedna z tych osob ktore nigdy nie zmieniaja planow wystroju swojego wnetrza.

  1. Ja też uwielbiam te bąbelki🙂 te z trzeciego zdjęcia już siedzą u mnie w kartonie i czekają na powieszenie🙂

  2. I also love the lamps! It reminds me of bubbles floating in the air, and sometimes it reminds me of raindrops falling from the sky!

    The effect is all the more enhanced by hanging it over the bath. A concept I have never thought of, but as always when I read your posts, I am now inspired to rethink/revise my future renovations!

    Dziękuję bardzo!

    • Hi,

      I’m very happy the blog inspires you🙂 I agree totally, the third one is definitely the most dramatic, but it’s far too long to fit in my space… – and the price difference is also dramatic🙂

  3. Hi Natienka! Thanks for the comment, I love your blog and have added it to my blogroll!

    As for the lamps, I have never seen a better use of a “bubble lamp” than over the tub. Makes so much sense there!!

  4. Hi Natienka,
    I am a HUGE fan of bubble chandeliers here in Canada, however I cannot find any here. I’ve looked online and they are all over $1000. Are there any websites you can recommend that sell bubble chandeliers that ship to Canada? I adore the one that you found in Poland!

    Thanks in advance,
    ~Anne

    • Try B&Q in the UK, they have a ceiling light for £59, very cheap! Good luck. Gordon.

  5. Like Anne
    I’ve also been looking for a chandelier like the first (round) one. Any suggestions on where I can find it? I’m in the U.S

  6. OMG!! I am in love with the bubble ceiling light you found in Polland. Do you remember the name of the store? I wonder if they sell it online and would ship it to the US.

  7. hej!!!
    ja mieszkam juz ponad pol roku w Abu Dhabi ale wlasnie szukam takiej lampy i natknelam sie na twoj blog🙂

    widze ze zdjecie chyba z castoramy. Jestem z Lodzi a czy mozesz mi zdradzic za ile ta lampe kupilas🙂 bo tu mimo ze z chin niektore ceny sa baaaardzo wygorowane np 3000 aed to jakos 2500 zloty.

    pozdrawiam serdecznie!!!! i przesylam duzo slonka – jesli mozesz odpisz na mojego maila i zapraszam na strone🙂

    greets from germany
