Ricasso Barrel Table Lamp

The Ricasso Barrel Table Lamp is a cylindrical form with a hand braided surface, made by mixed-media textile designer, Aimee Betts. Shade not included.

Aimee has used intricate braiding to compose a tightly woven structure using cow suede, kangaroo and waxed cotton cords, creating a rich texture that becomes animated under the light. Contrasting with the timber below, this brocade work will draw the eye and create a focal point in any interior.
