Rupert and Pepper Henson are parents of two boys who also manage a distribution business of URC products in the CaMaNaVa area. Pepper shares that she loves fixing up their house, while Rup enjoys occasional drinking and exploring different kinds of whiskey. During quarantine, they brought their two passions together by conceptualizing Happy Light Mnl.

“While my husband and I were having happy hour at home, we realized that there are so many nice liquor bottles and we thought of repurposing them into beautiful, unusual lamps,” Pepper explains. They started by just selling the shades so people can breathe new life into their existing lamps; now, they sell the entire lamps.

Pepper and Rup admit that they faced some challenges early on, not being active on social media themselves and having to learn the ropes from scratch for an online business. However, they pushed through and now sell amazing lamps on Instagram that you are sure to fall in love with.

If you love alcohol (like I do hehe) and want to showcase your love for the environment at the same time, Happy Light Mnl’s lamps would be perfect for you. Not only do they repurpose used items, but they also look great. These lamps exude creativity and uniqueness, and instantly add personality to any room. You can place them anywhere in your house either as a centerpiece or in a special nook and light up your space in a creative and aesthetic way. Even if you don’t drink alcohol, it is easy to see how these lamps can liven up any living space.

“The inspiration really came from beautiful liquor bottles and the need for people to make their spaces more beautiful especially in this time where a big part of our lives is spent at home,” adds Pepper.

Happy Light Mnl proves that something as simple and as ordinary as a lamp can make you happy as long as it is done beautifully and with love. Their lamps are well thought of made with unusual materials that will make as gorgeous alternatives to ordinary lamps. They deliver all over the Philippines, too!
