Lamp of the Week: 22″ Nasturtium

The 22″ Nasturtium is a bold shade pattern that calls for an expressive use of glass. Commissioned by a Chicago area client in 2001, this shade has strong colors and an interesting variety in the glasses. Rippled and granite textures are used throughout , giving the shade a shimmering presence. This expressive shade was mated with the equally impressive Mosaic Turtleback base.

After receiving the base, our client christened it, “The mother of all bases!” We couldn’t agree more that this large base has all the bells and whistles. The band of turtleback tiles is illuminated from within, while the mosaic on the lower portion is viewed in reflected light. We can create this base with green, gold or red turtleback tiles. The glass mosaic on the lower half of the base can be done in any color.
