Haarlem and the Muscle Lamp by Jos Kranen


My days here in the Western part of the Netherlands are so inspiring and relaxing. Yesterday my sister and I visited Haarlem, close to Amsterdam with has many nice shops… a new one called Greenwich Village was particularly interesting due to this bautiful Felt Lamp by Dutch designer Jos Kranen called the Muscle Lamp. Greenwich Village doesn’t have a website

yet but you are more than welcome to send owner  Mariu Giovannini an email if you have any questions about the lamp.


After our shopping spree we went back to Bloemendaal to have a lovely lunch af Fleurie. The ambiance in the village restaurant is always warm and uplifting, I really liked the words on the black board saying: Hooray It is Today.
