Portland Basebed Oval Lamp with Black Lampshade

Published by


Portland Basebed oval lamp with black douppion silk lampshade, braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and an embedded mason’s mark of authentication.



The simplicity of this lamp underlines the beauty of the natural stone, a persistent priority amongst all of Ian’s designs. We work with stone because it’s such an incredibly tactile material that is equally pleasing to the touch and to the eye.

Each piece of British stone is specially selected by our stonemasons in Staffordshire to ensure the finest quality of craftsmanship. They then begin crafting with a slight chamfer top and bottom to enhance the curves of the design and create its shadow. The finished stone is then hand-honed and sealed with smooth, warm feel.

As with all our work, we pay close attention to the fine details. Each lamp is finished with a braided cable, antique brass fittings and our mason’s mark of authentication, a solid bronze coin, set into the base.

Each subtle variation in the stone and the fabric of the handmade, bespoke, silk shades guarantees that every lamp is unique.
