refined French luxury in the decorative lamps of Christophe C么me

There is just something exquisite about French luxury design.聽 Regardless of where you see it, you just know it鈥檚 French.聽 Take for instance the sculptural, luxurious and unique table lamps – the聽loukoum lights – from Paris-based designer Christophe C么me. I first saw one on a 17th century Chinese praying table several years back and the visual still haunts me.聽 They鈥檙e so amazing!

Made of polished crystal with a patinated bronze base, the lights are timeless.聽 Each glass block is crafted individually so no 2 lamps are the same.聽 Appropriately, they’re named after those imperfect blocks of gelatinous confection we in the West call 鈥渢urkish delights鈥 鈥 loukoum 鈥 and the lamps come in various sizes both in translucent white or yellow.
And just like it was at home sitting on a Chinese antique, these lights can effortlessly combine in more modern settings, whether on a 1920s Ruhlmann table or a contemporary Jake Phipps console. Smoking hot to say the least! These are definitely my interior designer’s pick for the week.
