Louis Lights Up the French.

Ah, I want to be in Paris. Sitting on the bridge overlooking the river Seine. And basking in the night light of the sparkling Eiffel Tower. But I can’t. For now, my wallet requires me to look at pretty French possessions… online. So here goes one of my new yearns. And the name is Louis di Calla. Paying homage to such greats as Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, Alberto Giacometti, and Jean Michel Frank, the decorative light fixtures take on a French Art Deco persona with classic proportions.

The Sirens is a hand-finished bronze double sconce in your choice of finish (nickel shown here) with optional shade. A classic choice.

Candleholders cast in solid bronze with inlaid bodies of bone covered in your choice of color stingray skin (aka shagreen). Frosted blown glass shades tope it all off. Exquisite.

The Double Cylindar is jaw-dropping. Solid bronze back plate is hand-finished and comes in three finishes. The shade is carved from natural alabaster. Mi amour.

My favorite is the French Stingray in a double light. Its shape is so intriguing and fluid. In a hallway, it would be art, in a library it would be another texture. So grand and elegant at the same time.

And not to forget the Shanghai Lamp with its hand-carved white or off-white alabaster base and graceful silhouette. Giacometti would be proud.
