Amalia Table Lamp (6000-0828)
Ian Thornton designed the Amalia Table Lamp, which is made of a telescoping column of solid wood around which natural rattan is hand-wrapped at its middle point. The pale tones of the rope on the tan table lamp are perfectly echoed by the lighter tones in the grasscloth shade. Keeping the composition warm, Thornton finished the metal hardware in brass and chose a wood finial that matches the lamp’s body to fasten the shade, which echoes the shape of the lamp as it flares at the bottom. A finely designed detail is the plinth base.
