1 000


What I like

I like the fact that this lamp is an archetype of the great decoration of the 1970s: the use of a semi-precious stone, amethyst, then used by the greatest jewelers such as Van Cleef & Arpels, brings a refined polychromy to an interior. I love that these amethyst crystals are lit from above and sparkle like the facets of a gemstone. The quality of the setting is also appreciable: note the refined detail of the chromed throat of the exotic wood base, the refinement of a setting designed and produced especially for this precise stone.

I like the quality of amethyst, which comes from Brazil.

I like the large size of this jewel-lamp, which magnifies this design, as well as the quality of the chrome.

Finally, the lampshade has been recreated in harmony with the lamp base: the silver is reminiscent of chrome, and the amethyst-coloured border the stone.

Technical description

Important lamp formed of an oval-shaped Brazilian amethyst, with a cruciform frame in brushed metal, resting on a chromed metal structure: a wide blade is fixed by two buttons to a large base of ebonized exotic wood in a rectangular shape hollowed out with a chromed metal groove; a square-section chrome rod attached to the back forms an elbow to accommodate the socket.

Around 1970.

A rectangular section lampshade in silver material, adorned with an amethyst color edging has been recreated, in the spirit of the 1970s, and the electrification redone by a professional.

Mix & Match

This jewel lamp, so important by its size, sparkling, will bring colorful and refined notes to classic interiors with antique furniture: violet notes will be reflected on the varnish of the marquetry or the mahogany.

Of course, it will be able to light up the waxed oak of the living room of Borge Jensen and Sonner, from the 1960s, but it will especially please with the furniture of Florence Knoll, Warren Platner, Eero Saarinen: their chrome will play with each other. , the asymmetrical, poetic side of this lamp will liven up the more regular shapes of this furniture.

But I really like this lamp on the huge desk top from the Banque de France: the softness of the walnut will be reinforced by the soft sparkles of the amethyst.

Finally, in any contemporary decor or with 1930s accents, it will shine in all its glory!

Its lampshade, which accentuates the precious side of the lamp, gives a glamorous side to all interiors!
