This table lamp is one of our own designs incorporating the 'Lilypond' design. Duncan Grant produced the Lilypond design, which was used on several different pieces by the artists. We used the design in the same way. You could have a square lamp base, as shown above, or a round base. The shade could be painted to match, but actually looks good in a plain matching colour, emphasising the design of the base, or use a Bloomsbury fabric. The hardest decision to make when commissioning a piece like this is whether to have it look newly painted or distress to make it look like an older antique piece. M Bespoke made to order. we do not give prices or sizes until we have agree a spec with a customer.
Lamps like these are not an 'off the shelf' item, they are specially made to order. They are expensive to make like most quality craft items. The following photos show the process a bit more clearly, taking a blank canvas table lamp base, priming it, base painting it, then building up the design, on all faces, one colour at a time. Unlike many original pieces this table lamp was designed to the scale of the design. The main column setion has mitre corners, more work, but the advantage is you do not get any 'end grain' when painting, so each face is clean. We'll add the rest of these photos soon.
