It's a great pleasure to introduce our tapered column lamp. Reminiscent of classical architectural elements and our obelisk models which we love so much, this lamp is perfectly suited for a writing desk, mantlepiece or nightstand.


We've lavished our usual attention on every detail of this tapered column lamp's design and function, sourcing fine, solid brass lamp fittings, colorful twisted cloth cords and faceted antique style plugs. This piece is built by hand in our studio using solid wood, providing a nice weight, which is then clad in red speckle hand-marbled paper by Payhembury Papers. The lamp body perches atop English brass bun feet, and we've added a quartet of our own hand-stamped brass hallmarks to the base as a pleasing finishing touch.


A fine lamp brings personality, warmth and atmosphere to a room, and our sculptural designs will sit comfortably with everything from antiques to contemporary art. Like every design that comes from the Parvum Opus atelier, our lamp project is driven by ongoing fascination, experimentation and refinement, and it's a great pleasure to share the realization of our efforts with you now. 


Lampshade recommendations:


Our new lamp bases will work with a wide variety of shade styles. We gladly recommend Newport Lamp & Shade who carry the beautiful Fermoie linen shades in a variety of colors and sizes. For very special bespoke ikat shades, we recommend Melodi Horne, who has an eye for finding perfect ikat patterns to match our marbled papers.
