Inspired by sailors' knots, the ELK Lighting Sailors Knot Decorative Sphere is a decorative flourish that will bring some nautical flair to your living space. The sculpture is made by winding and knotting jute rope into a perfect ball. To give the sphere a rustic look, the rope is left its natural light brown color. You can incorporate the sculpture into your décor in a number of ways. Options range from simply placing it on a shelf or table to arranging several on a tray.
