a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
The Cygnet floor lamp was launched at the Saatchi gallery in May 2011 as part of the Collect exhibition of world class craft.
This piece was originally made from Purple Heart, but has since been produced in the rare and unusual timber Jacaranda which is of the Rosewood family. The entire piece is hand crafted from the turned shade, light pendent, brass base and delicate dimmer switch. The Cygnet lamp has then been hand finished using Danish oil to bring out the unique figure of the grain.
