Portland Basebed small curved lamp with feather-coloured douppion silk lampshade, braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and an embedded mason’s mark of authentication.
The slender sweep of the design creates a graceful silhouette while retaining a luxurious solidity. Highlighting and enhancing the beauty of natural stone 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 to only be of the highest standards. The deceptively simple shape is then hand-carved and finished by our stonemasons in Staffordshire, ensuring the absolute finest quality of craftsmanship. The finished stone then is hand-honed and sealed to give it a warm, smooth feel.
We have paid close attention to detail, finishing the lamp with a braided cable, complementary antique brass fittings and our own 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.
