An elegant and stylish table lamp created by Utopia from parts of an antique/vintage clarinet made of the classic hardwood, grenadilla (Dalbergia melanoxylon). Grenadilla is an exotic African blackwood often used for making musical instruments. The keys are silver plated.
The clarinet was sourced in a state of disrepair and unable to be played, it has been ‘utopiaised’ into a table lamp with new chrome fittings, around 2 metres of retro-style twisted black cable and a black plug. The hardwood base has been specially hand turned and French polished to a warm red/brown colour to coordinate with the top section of wood. The flex exits discreetly from the wooden base.
The lamp is shown here with one of our large ivory linen oval shades. Please visit our lampshade collections for more shade designs and prices.
Dimensions height 65cm, base diameter 19cm
Utopia's Unexpected Lights
All Utopia's lights are unique and handmade from interesting antiques and finds in our studios in North Norfolk . They each tell a narrative and enjoy close inspection to reveal strong craftsmanship and hidden layers of interest and wonder.
Creating our distinctive lights – the narrative behind the story Reclaimed elegance – the artefacts that Utopia sources for its lights are deliciously old, usually antique, sometimes vintage, and this ‘narrative’ is reflected in their character, patina and form – Utopia celebrates the knocks, chips, and scratches of their stories. The inspired selection of the original object and the process it goes through to make it covetable and unique is what makes our products special – every lamp is a one-off.
Peace of Mind Enjoy the aesthetics of top quality heritage styling: traditional twisted fabric cable, aged metal fittings, retro-style chains and historical Bakelite plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.
Utopia charges a flat rate of £10 for all deliveries.
