Dappler

Turns your living room into a woodland glade.

Summer days, sitting under trees, reading a good book with a glass of chilled white wine within reach. The smell of warm grass, the zumming of friendly hoverflies, a balmy zephyr gently ruffling your hair. Paradise.

This feeling can be yours, all year round.

The dappler is essentially just a light shade, but with a difference. It is surrounded by a wreath of imitation branches bearing imitation leaves (of a tree of your choice). When you switch the dappler function on, the leafy ends of the branches are actuated by a small motor and begin to waft softly to and fro and up and down as if blown by a gentle breeze. The light, now filtering down through the moving leaves, dapples and dipples and bathes you in summery bliss no matter what the weather.

       Cool. Can I get one for my bedroom which projects light reflected off waves onto my ceiling? That's one of my favourite bits of being on a boat, it would be lovely to take it home with me!

       I think....Ahh what the heck. Bun for an idea that brings back fond memories.

       Bun if the on/off switch is labelled "Dappler Shift"

       You could have it mimic the weather conditions outside using dappler radar.   

       Complementary product: a low-hanging parasol with a flickering blue light just under the umbrella. Just put it up next time you're on a picnic and it'll feel like sitting inside with the telly on.   

       Maybe I'll just buy the dappler.
