edit58 are thrilled to be the exclusive stockist of the 'Ludlow' lamp base, designed and handmade by Kelmscott Studio; a craft-led interior design studio based in Stroud in the Costwolds.
We were lucky enough to be introduced to Jodey Collorick, founder and creative director of Kelmscott Studio, whilst renovating our Cotswolds barn, and we fell in love with his/his studio's approach to bespoke furnishings; their use of natural materials, traditional methods and an unwavering focus on quality and finish.
The lamp base design was inspired by the legs on an arts and crafts side table that Jodey discovered in an antiques market on a trip to Ludlow a few years ago.
The lamps are made using British beech hardwood, and then painted a glossy red, green, blue or yellow, resulting in a versatile piece that works perfectly in both traditional and contemporary interiors and across a range of different rooms. Each lamp is wired with a traditional lighting flex in brown and solid brass fittings by a professional electrician and PAT tested for safety
We obviously wanted to give the lamp base a perfect shade to sit atop it, and so edit58 commissioned Alice Palmer to work her lampshade magic using a vintage inspired striped muslin cotton fabric with gorgeous embroidered detailing, sourced by edit58.
The result is a brilliant handmade 12" scrunchie style shade that works with each colour of the 'Ludlow' lamp base, and looks beautiful whether the light is switched on or not. The stripes in the fabric pick up on each lamp base colour option.
The 'Ludlow' lamp base is available to purchase by itself, or along with our exclusive Alice Palmer Lampshade. Please make your selection from the drop down menu below.
Please note: Our Ludlow Lamp base has a 3 week lead time, as they are painted to order. Thank you
