This table lamp is one of our own designs inspired by an Omega Workshops Marquetry cabinet c. 1915. The Giraffe design shows the increasing influence of Cubism on the then art world. The geometric shapes are emphasised with different wood veneer inlays. It was but 1 step to take the idea and use it for this lamp base. Marquetry using fine veneers requires great skill & time to produce, especially on smaller pieces like this lamp. You could have the design on 2 adjoining faces (as shown below), or on 2 oppisate faces (with 2 plain wood veneers on the other 2 faces) as shown above, which I think looks better. The painted stepped base & top further accentuate the pre-Deco flavour of the piece. Made to order.
