An elegantly modern follow-up to the award-winning pendant style that debuted in Spring 2012, this table lamp version of Lee Broom's Crystal Bulb lighting makes its retail debut outside the U.K. at A+R. On a table, desk or shelf, this brass-stemmed light is available with a cut-lead crystal bulb in clear or the new frosted style. An integrated switch is on the electrical cord. The Lee Broom Crest and Lee Broom logo is delicately etched onto the polished brass base.
The London-based Lee combines decorative aesthetics with industrial influences in this standout object of thoughtful, innovative design. The full-lead crystal bulb is hand cut with a traditional crystal pattern and etched with the Lee Broom logo. Fits any standard E27 lamp, wall or ceiling fitting. Looks stunning solo or in a group, and is also available with a brushed brass pendant ceiling fitting that also comes engraved with the Lee Broom crest and with a gold silk flex (a.k.a. cable), or without a fixture should you wish to insert in another fixture altogether.
Despite its classic styling, this is a modern incarnation of Lee's original collection of vintage crystal decanters re-purposed as lighting. His bright epiphany one day: realize the concept as a bulb. The dramatic flair so signature to his aesthetic began in theater, then segued into a brief foray into fashion under Vivienne Westwood and schooling at Central St. Martins. It was there that he began funding his education consulting on bar interiors, and in 2007 Lee founded his own signature agency to continue consulting and, most importantly, producing his concepts in furniture and lighting.

“I like the way material can be de rigueur or passé,” says London-based Lee Broom about his fondness for taking traditional materials such as cut crystal or marble and using them in dramatic and often playful ways. With that in mind, UK’s The Guardian says, “Lee Broom is to furniture what Marc Jacobs or Tom Ford are to fashion.” Lee comes by that kind of iconoclasm naturally, having first studied theatre and then switching gears to apprentice with legendary English designer Vivienne Westwood and study fashion at Central St Martins.
Yet his first commissions were for interiors and Lee never looked back, seeing a springboard for his own designs such as the Decanterlight, modeled on vintage crystal and then manufactured with time-honored means. Emerging as a champion of British craftsmanship, his prodigious output of 75-and-counting products and countless interiors in less than 10 years of business recently led to The Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade. Taking a label from one of his collections, this nouveau rebel no doubt will continue to shake things up.
