Lamps as art, pure and simple. Mackintosh designed many such pieces as art, we are continuing his ideas. These new standard floor lamp designs draw their inspiration from the stunning decoration, and proposed decoration, in the living room at Derngate. Not only did this striking interior pre-date Art Deco by several years but this is one of the most original interiors of all time. We designed these floor lamps to incorporate the stencilled wall decoration used by Mack, the vivid yellow triangles are striking against a black background. You could have the main column a simple black, to focus attention of the shade decoration, or we can add a further yellow triangle to the coloumn for even more interest. The middle standard lamp uses a less well known alternate design Mack did for Derngate which would look equally stunning.
Making the standard lamp base itself is straight forward. The tricky p[art is making the shade; the design and stencilling it requires precision and good craft skill, but it is applying the shade then to the frame neatly. But if you can draw it you can make it. The lamp bases are supplied with a lampholder and 3M of cable, but no plug (partly it depends of the country for different plug type, and also we avoid electrical manufacturer regulations). The standard lamps are made bespoke to order, but needless to say they are expensive to produce. We do not discuss prices until we have discussed a spec. with a customer.
