The Odessa Floor Lamp
Bent Laminated Ebonized Ash & Shoji White Silk paper
Polished Nickel Rod
Hand Rubbed Oil & Varnish Finish
70” Tall

Like the rare black calla lily for which it’s named, this floor lamp is feminine with an aura of majesty. Sexy and gorgeous, you can’t take your eyes off it.

a very very nice design and as you rightly said sexy.
I am curiose as to how you got the cable up to the light and how you hid it and the light mounting.
I’m guess hiding the light mount was not hard due to the silk paper hiding it but i wondered where the cable and switch if it had one was

Very nice design. I have a special someone who would love to have something like this. I too, am curious how you hid the wires.

What you can’t see from that angle is a polished nickel rod that runs the length of the lamp, right up the middle. It is secured in the base pieces that tie the four stalks together and in the middle where the four pieces meet. The wire was removed in these photos and basically runs through the pipe… I use a foot operated switch to turn the lamp on and off.

Thanks for looking—

WOW. I LOVE IT, but the only thing that I don’t like, is that it’s not sitting in my living room right now :-)
