At long last! The Gräshoppa
18th May 2011
The much sought after Chelsea Textiles Gräshoppa Lamp, inspired by Greta Magnusson Grossman, a 1950s Swedish designer, is now in stock. As soon as early prototypes were unveiled in 2009, they were seized upon by stylists and design journalists and photographed for many publications in Europe and the USA, creating an unprecedented demand. Initially made only to order the Gräshoppa Lamp is now available for immediate delivery.
The articulated metal bell shade, standing on a graceful angled stem, ending in three metal legs, is an iconic 50s reading lamp of spare elegance. Given added sophistication by a choice of any one of Chelsea Textiles' fourteen signature colours, from muted blues, greens and neutrals to rich rust and burgundy, it will enhance any space, from library to office to bedroom.
As with all Chelsea Textiles' new ventures, there is an emphasis on versatility in the colouring, making the Lamp a worthy complement to any interior, whether a traditional library or the most contemporary sitting room.
