21st Century Monroe Floor Lamp Aged Brass Cast, Lampshade with Tassel Fringe

$6,655per item

About

1. Product description: The “Monroe” floor lamp is made of oxidized brushed brass cast with a lampshade adorned by a gold tassel fringe complementing the set. After smelting, a process known for thousands of years widely used in brass and bronze sculptures and precious metal works, the legs are sanded to get their curvy shape. The legs get this color through a chemical process used to oxidize the brass. In the end, the brass is protected with a high-quality anti-stain varnish to prevent oxidations. The lampshade is lined with high quality fabrics. Bessa prides itself on creating handmade functional art furniture built to order by highly skilled Portuguese artisans. 2. Inspiration: Marilyn Monroe, the sexiest pin-up of the 1950s, inspired a piece of Art & Design. The design of the Monroe lamp captures the essence of her image and the sensuality of her legs. The lampshade and the gold tassel fringe complement the set, reminding the dresses used at the time. One hundred percent hand-worked with noble materials, the Monroe Lamp is another piece that expresses a familiar story, bringing passionate memories. 3. Product Dimensions: W 41cm (16.15"), H 175cm (68.9"), D 41cm (16.15") 4. Materials: Aged brushed brass and anti-stain varnish, fabric, tassel fringe (all colors available).
