Mariano Fortuny was an amazing artist, designer, textile god, and photographer -all of my passions. These silk lamps are perhaps on of my most favorite collections of lighting that I have used in projects. The attention to detail and hand painted silk is gorgeous and timeless.
When I was twenty six, I traveled to Europe for the first time and found myself in Venice, Italy where I purchased an authentic silk Fortuny lamp. I literally hauled it around with me for the rest of the trip because I was so nervous about parting with it and never seeing it again!
I have loved it over the years and like all of the things you place in your home, each object, I feel should have a story that goes along with it. ~ LF
