Come October and we will be automatically put into our festive mode! In addition to the approaching of our favorite festival, there’s also something super special about this time – the winter season. We don’t know about you but our kind of winter is a magical meld of cozy Hygge with warm gatherings and reading seshs with a Jane Austen classic in hand. God! We have already started hankering for the pleasant nip in the air! While there’s still some time for our favorite season to hit us, we want to be absolutely sure that we are kitted out with the essentials to embrance, enjoy, and entertain. And so if there’s one requisite decor piece without which we cannot imagine our favorite festive as well as natural season, it is the lamp!
Here’s the thing about lamps – they serve a dual purpose of being the cynosure of folks’ eyes whilst being a gentle source of light. Use it to brighten up a poorly-lit space or place it on your entryway console table to anchor the decor vignette, it will tick all the right boxes. Here are 5 of our favorite illuminating marvels from Kartell which all happen to constitue the vibrant oeuvre of one of the best-loved designers of our time, Ferruccio Laviani.
Kabuki Floor Lamp
This beautiful brainchild of designer and architect Ferruccio Laviani is a characterful piece with a tantalizing dose of coquettish charm. Dramatic in scale and style, the Kabuki floor lamp from Kartell is as much an art piece as it is a source of light. Kabuki’s crocheted frame is a result of Kartell’s evolving injection mould technology, giving it its signature neo-Baroque inspired panache. God, we are in love!
Bourgie Table Lamp
Another luminary wonder from Ferruccio Laviani, the Bourgie table lamp is an iconic piece celebrated for its reinterpretation of the ostentatious Baroque art. A classic silhouette garbed in polycarbonate plastic, a modern material – Bourgie is a post-modern masterpiece. Characterized by an ornately interconnected base and a generous pleated lampshade, Borgie is a ravishing table lamp ideal for a living room, study or bedroom.
Cindy Table Lamp
We wonder what led Ferruccio Laviani to conceive his petite chef-d’œuvre, Cindy? Given his proclivity for coalescing retro elements into a contemporary context, we definitely know he meant to mastermind a piece that would, quite literally, add a luster to his growing repertoire of transitional pieces and Cindy does that perfectly. Its conical lampshade and rounded teardrop base in a fetching metallic tone make it a glamorous choice for interiors calling for a bit of the 70s inspired glamour.
Take Table Lamp
Featuring two facing sheets of see-through polycarbonate formed to create the lampshade and a circle-on-a-square base, “Take” is a gorgeous take by Laviano on the good old table lamp. Known for its delicate, pearly reflections, Take is a beautiful interior accessory that will add just the right amount of pizzazz to your interior scheme.
Battery Table Lamp
Boasting a crystal-colored shade with a prismatic surface that casts bewitching dancing patterns of light, Battery table lamp is a compact piece with oodles of charm. Created using transparent PMMA, it truly represents the innovative streak that Kartell is synonymous with. As you might have guessed, Battery can be recharged using a USB cable and function on its own for up to 6 hours.
