Inspired by an American original, this floor lamp expresses the exuberant minimalism of the midcentury. Rising from a conical base on a curving three-sided stand, the slender center support holds an inverted cone shade.

The entire lamp body is covered in silver leaf giving it a very beautiful and sleek look.

The shade of the lamp shows a patination which is a reaction of the solver leaf to the heat of the metal caused by the light bulb.

Measurements:

79.50 inches high x 12.75 inches wide x 12.75 inches deep x 6 5/8 inches lamp shade diameter.
