Lamp of the Week: 18″ Alamander

The Alamander (also called Allamander and Allamanda) is a a large flowering shrub that is often found near streams and ponds. It is often called “Golden Trumpet” even though cultivated varieties can have yellow, white, or purple flowers.

For this 18″ Alalamander shade a variety of deep orange, amber and yellow flowers are contrasted against a backdrop of purple and blue that is tinged with yellow. The green leaves and stems enliven the rich tones of the background, playing off  the border rows at the top and bottom of the shade. The shade is shown on the stately Library base (22.5″ tall). This lamp was created in 2019 as a showroom piece and is now in a private collection.
