Portland Basebed oval lamp with feather-coloured douppion silk lampshade, braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and an embedded mason’s mark of authentication.
The intentional simplicity of the lamp base 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 oval shape is hand-worked and finished by our stonemasons in Staffordshire, ensuring the absolute finest quality of craftsmanship. A slight chamfer top and bottom enhances the curves of the design, creating a shadow. 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 guarantee that every lamp is unique.
