Stripes on rice!

VIT lamp base in taupe with striped shade from Insatiable Studios

Jil Smith of Insatiable Studios surprised me last week with one of her creations,  an amazing rice paper shade, custom striped, to partner with a tall VIT lamp base. Each shade has been built up with layers of rice paper. Each stripe is cut by hand with a razor. Jil’s shades are surprisingly durable and not prone to fading. I like how she has taken the stripes and applied them horizontally to the shade. The result of pairing this shade with the vertical stripes on the VIT base creates a lamp with a completely different character than the same lamp with a white shade. I look forward to seeing the stripes in other colors next.

It is a pleasure to be collaborating with someone like Jil who has a similar commitment to enduring style and quality.
