Lighting J5-10 Rectangluar lamp in straw marquetry 2

Straw marquetry is just one of the sumptuous finishes available from the new spring home accessories range of Simon Orrell Atelier. This elegant lampbase for S/S 2015 offers a contemporary spin on traditional straw work techniques. This British-made, straw marquetry lampbase is just one of many exciting designs for the home, available from the inaugural spring/ summer collection of Simon Orrell Atelier.

Straw work was used for boxes and small items of furniture in 18th century England and France. The sunburst pattern was a popular motif of the Art Deco period and here on this modern lampbase has been given a fresh, contemporary spin. Split and pressed strips of straw are dyed and painstakingly applied to the surface of each object to create beautiful patterns.
