Portland Basebed oval lamp with contrast inset and feather-coloured douppion silk lampshade, braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and an embedded mason’s mark of authentication.
The dramatic contrast of stone choice on this lamp base highlights 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 oval shapes are hand-worked separately before being bonded together creating vivid shadows. The lamps are hand-finished by our award-winning stonemasons, ensuring the absolute finest quality of craftsmanship. The finished stone is hand-honed and sealed giving a surprisingly warm 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 guarantees that every lamp is unique.
