Description from The New Craftsmen

The Ricasso Barrel Table Lamp is a cylindrical form with a hand braided surface, made by mixed-media textile designer, Aimee Betts. Carefully crafted, each lamp base is a sculptural statement piece perfect for enhancing exceptional interiors.

Aimee has used intricate braiding to compose a tightly woven structure using cow suede, kangaroo and waxed cotton cords, creating a rich texture that becomes animated under the light. Contrasting with the timber below, this brocade work will draw the eye and create a focal point in any interior. The Ricasso is a continuation of the Ricasso handle family, inspired by European Sword Handles from the Wallace Collection, London. The Collection – renowned for its fine craftsmanship, opulence and exotic beauty – was acquired mainly in Paris by the 4th Marquess of Hertford prior to his death in 1870.

Lamp and shade sold separately.
