Another group of decorative Art Deco table lamps - we like these chunkier shapes because they give enough surface to apply decorative treatments to. Above. the LH stepped base is pure Deco, with the overall shape & massing echoing a skyscraper. The RH lamp has a cleaner rectangular shape better suited to the marquetry design. Below we've shown a landscape version of the lamps, which works equally well. The marquetry designs are based on Geometric designs by the Art Deco designer Walter Dorwin Teague. We can use any woods or colours you want, which is especially useful if you want to match in with other room furnishings. The marquetry design can be applied to just one face, or two - it looks best with a plain veneer face either side of a design face. Shown below is another colour version, which could be either painted or done in veneer.
These lamps are all made to order. They are not cheap; just making the lamp itself takes time, but then adding 4 faces in marquetry veneers adds much more time. Marquetry requires a high level of craft skill to make it look good; one piece of veneer is cut at a time, hand glued to the last piece, allowed to dry, and then the next piece is added, a laborious process. We don't supply lamp shades to go with the lamp, as this is personal taste & most customers prefer to choose their own. Supplied with a 2.5M cable. Cable colours are available in white, black & gold, etc; let us know what you would prefer. The lampholder has an integral on/off switch. Please specify if you want the lampholder to hold bayonet or screw type bulbs and what finish you want the lampholder in. The shade sits on the lampholder & is held secure with a screw thread. Made to order, allow approx 6 - 8 weeks to make. We don't disclose sizes or price until we've agreed a spec with a customer.
Shown above is the lamp sitting on a sideboard, which has a similar Teague marquetry design in the door panels. The other picture is a painted version of one of the designs. We could paint these in any colours you prefer.
