It is always a pleasure to see our pieces integrated into their new homes, and never more so than when they become part of a beautifully designed residence such as this Holland Park town house where we recently installed a diverse selection of mid century lighting.
Hanging in the drawing room are two drum chandeliers by Zero Quattro, a little known but innovative Italian design house that produced sought after work of the highest quality from the 1950’s to the 1970’s.
With an inner ring of clear, Murano glass prisms and an outer ring of amber prisms, the chandeliers reflect the light from the bay window and make a fine addition to this effortlessly elegant space.
Moving to the reception we see a large, brass chandelier attributed to Arredoluce. With 18 gracefully curved arms and ivory painted bulb holders it creates a very pleasing aesthetic with the understated ceiling rose and is an ideal choice for the classic style of the room.
Lastly, we have a 1960’s Italian, three arm pendant attributed to Cristal Arte. In brass with green glass diffusers, its modernist design and bright but soft light is perfect for this large hallway.
We look forward to installing more Circa lighting in this tastefully appointed home very soon.
Following on from one of our recent Marmorea blogs featuring installations in two Belgravia apartments, here are some images of lighting we supplied to the same residencies along with mid century furniture throughout.
Our first chandelier is by renowned Italian entrepreneur and designer, Gaetano Sciolari.
In brass and chrome, the sculptural, modernist piece has eight columns acting as bulb holders and zig zag arms that complement the apposing wall whilst creating a pleasing contrast between the symmetry of the chandelier and the ornate ceiling rose.
Although it is not uncommon to see brass and chrome together these days, it was Sciolari who broke the rules of tradition by introducing the combination in the late 1960’s, and futuristic, edgy creations such as this became synonymous with his name.
The next room is home to another Italian chandelier, this time a typical mid century design in brass and black with elegantly curved arms, each supporting two white tubular glass diffusers.
It is a graceful piece of lighting that casts a bright but warm glow creating an atmosphere of tranquility and style.
