The choice of stone on this lamp creates a striking contrast that allows the lamp base to highlight the natural beauty of the stone material, something that’s always Ian’s priority when designing. Thanks to the tactile nature of stone material, our lamps are both pleasing to the eyes and to the touch.

Each block of British stone is specially selected by our award-winning stonemasons, then the oval shapes are hand-worked individually before being bonded together to create their vivid shadows. The next step is to hand-finish the lamps to ensure a peak level of quality craftsmanship. Finally, the piece is finished by hand-honing the stone and sealing in its surprisingly warm feel.

We pay great attention to detail in our lamps, which we finish with a braided cable, antique brass fittings and our own mason’s mark of authenticity – a solid bronze coin – set into the back of the base.

Thanks to the nature of working in stone, subtle variations in the stone and fabric of our handmade, bespoke, silk shades ensure that each lamp is unique.
