Lampshade with embroidery by Russell J R Harris

  • A lampshade covered with an aged linen on the outside and a smooth black linen on the inside.


    It features a hand embroidered design by Berlin based queer artist Russell J R Harris and is inspired by one of Jean Cocteau's woodcuts from the book "Le Livre Blanc" - a semi-autobiographical story describing a young man's love affairs with a succession of boys and men during the 1900s. Russell's signature is incorporated within the embroidery, which makes every piece unique.


    The lampshade can be purchased with or without the Mid-Century wooden base, please select the correct option when adding it to your cart.
