‘The Electra Lamp is influenced by mid-century design’ says Tamara.  ‘I’ve watched a lot of Mad Men (!) and I have a huge appreciation for interiors of this era’ she explains! ‘The three glaze colours were easy to choose: a classic, glazed turquoise, a simple white, and of course, GOLD!’. Rocket Lamp, Disc Lamp bases and now the new Electra table lamp are the best-sellers and all are hand-crafted in Tasmania Blackwood.
