What a great day thrifting! Found this fabulous 70’s lamp. It needs rewiring and the shade is definitely in need of total body cosmetic surgery but it will be perfect for my living room make over. That’s the fabulous fabric I mentioned in last week’s WINKS. It’s by metremade and just arrived. I had plans to use it on another two lampshades but it must be fate that I found this lamp. Perhaps I’ll just use it as a trim on a crisp white shade. I definitely love Saturdays!
The Bourgie lamp, designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Kartell, is one of my favourite lamps. I love the juxtaposition of the baroque shape with the modern edge of the polycarbonate plastic. So for those who share my love of this lamp, enjoy some Bourgie porn.
The artichoke pendant is a classic design created by Poul Henningsen in 1958. It is such a stunningly beautiful light, and due to it’s popularity (and hefty price tag), has often been replicated. It looks incredible in modern settings, and makes quite a striking focal point.
I hereby declare today Tord Boontje day. (Well, how about Mother’s Day until noon and then Tord Day from noon on). I was poking around on his website and thought that it was about time we did a Tord post. Because he rocks. It’s as simple as that. These photos of his whimsical designs from his website speak for themselves. Let’s all share a collective *sigh*.
Here are some photos I found that feature Tord lighting (plus one devoted Tord fan). There’s a store here that sells his Midsummer light and I am sooooooo going this week to get one….or two….or three….
