Portland Basebed large curved lamp with feather-coloured douppion silk lampshade, braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and an embedded mason’s mark of authentication.
The large circumference of the lamp base gives a solid ‘chunky’ feel while retaining a graceful curve. The intentional simplicity of the design underlines the beauty of the natural stone, which is always Ian’s priority when designing. Stone is an incredibly tactile material and should be equally pleasing to the touch and to the eye.
Each block of British stone is specially selected then the deceptively simple shape is hand-carved and finished by our stonemasons in Staffordshire, ensuring the absolute finest quality of craftsmanship. The finished stone is hand-honed and sealed giving a luxurious feel.
We have paid close attention to detail, finishing the lamp with a braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and our mason’s mark of authentication, a solid bronze coin, set into the back of the base.
Subtle variations in the stone and the fabric of the handmade, bespoke, silk shades guarantee that every lamp is unique.
