Oh how I love the juxtaposition of materials in this sculptural Urban lamp from UK artist David Raine for his company alkamie.biz. It has a wonderfully non-tippy base of concrete with perspex insert, and is topped with a stunning, shredded (and fire-resistant) silk shade.
David also offers his beautiful, organically-shaped lampshades separately.
To me this is like wearing a fancy sweater with a plain skirt — it’s special and very stylish without being too overdone.
