Embracing Nature

In the late 19th Century, architect Antoni Gaudi was deeply influenced by the atmosphere of forests for the interior of his masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona, Spain.

Sagrada Familia Cathedral interior. Barcelona, Spain

Gaudi’s stunning buildings in Barcelona, Spain, remain a legacy to his life-long belief that we need look no further than nature to see construction at its supreme. The most ambitious of his works is the Sagrada Familia cathedral. Gaudi took over design in 1883 and the building is due to be finished in 2026, 100 years after his death.

The cathedral’s awesome interior is inspired by the idea of a forest that invites prayer. Tree-like columns branch off near the roof for support, and in-between skylights contain green and gold glass to reflect light. Enhancing the feeling of standing on a forest floor and Gaudi’s plan to create a contemplative atmosphere are large colored glass windows letting in dappled sunlight.

A century or so later, Currey & Company is even incorporating living matter into its designs. They are embracing the unity of opposites with functional pieces inspired by organic forms found in nature.

Sacred gingko leaves, serene lily pads and blooming calla lilies are just a few of the natural shapes their lighting, furniture and accent pieces have been designed to emulate. Crafted from metal, wood and ceramic, these designs never wilt but stand the test of time.

Currey & Company 3000-0021 – A true work of art with many functions, the Bohlend Cabinet not only features an interior storage drawer with felt liner, teak veneer surfaces and adjustable tempered glass shelves, but an antiqued mirror back panel and an LED touch light with three-way setting. Its eye-catching design of hand-cut ginko leaf marquetry is made of mappa veneer and is perfectly contrasted by the solid teak construction and solid brass hardware.

Arteriors Roxanne Flush Mount Chandelier

Homeowners certainly appreciate a beautiful chandelier. We’ve had many clients fall in love with the Zanadoo chandelier by Arteriors Home, only to be frustrated when advised it would not really work in a space with only 8 foot ceilings. Well Arteriors must have recognized the pent up demand, because they just designed a new flush mount chandelier that takes the Zanadoo starburst concept and makes it applicable for smaller rooms or rooms with lower ceilings. It’s called the Roxanne Flush Mount Chandelier and comes in two different finishes, antique brass (item# AH-89969) and polished nickel (item# AH-89970).

With a low profile height of only 8 inches, this chandelier will add beauty to a room with low ceilings and not obstruct the view. It also greatly reduces it getting accidentally hit or touched by kids, which it is a dangerous thing because it may cause the chandelier to fall or some of its components to break.

And it’s not just for living rooms or dining rooms. The Roxanne Flush Mount Chandelier is also approved for use in covered outdoor areas or bathrooms!

When she placed her second order for chandelier frames, Currey asked to see her lighting designs. Impressed with what he saw, he asked Koszyk to create designs for Currey & Company.
