Stilnovo floor lamp brass, 12 lights, Sciolari

ROOMSCAPE
Stilnovo floor lamp in solid brass, 12 lights large candelabra, likely designed by Gaetano Sciolari, 1950`s ca, Italian.

This vintage floor lamp has been gently cleaned while respecting the antique patina. It is newly rewired, new brass lamp holders, earthed & ready to use. This lamp is compatible with other countries although it may be necessary to purchase different light bulbs suitable to local electricity. It is possible to use this lamp with a dimmer switch. Light bulbs included.

This large vintage floor lamp is attributed to Italian maker Stilnovo based on a number of design features. The solid brass structure, quality design, attention to detail and conical lamp holders, are all features of Stilnovo designs. Gaetano Sciolari is known to have designed for Stilnovo and many of these features are similar to his work.

This particular design in a floor lamp is rare to find, unique, and interesting with the combination of elegant flowing design in solid brass and industrial elements such as exposed bolts and textured grey iron base.

The unique combination of Modernism & traditional candelabra form, make this floor lamp a sculptural addition to a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Hollywood Regency, 70`s Glamour, Traditional or Contemporary.

The eye is drawn to the large illuminated candelabra of 12 lights; 8 on the bottom row and 4 at the top. These tulip shaped lamp holders are trimmed with a simple row of circular piercings giving this piece the characteristic 1950`s Futurisitic look. Brass tubular arms holding the lamps run in geometric right angles; the top row fitting in the niche created by the bottom arms. Each arm is sealed to the other end, and attach to a large central solid brass disc which is a continuation of the central column. The top is finished with a brass plate & finial of the same tubing as the arms. There are 2 decorative screws holding this plate in place and allowing access to the wiring & bolted arms.

The central column is also of solid brass and contains the main wiring. The candlelabra top portion of the frame screws into this central column.

The circular base has a chic combination of grey textured iron and warm toned brass. In the centre there is a circular brass plate with 3 large decorative bolts holding securely to the weighed iron base. The weighted base make this lamp strong & stable. Rising from this plate is an insert for the central column to screw; from the side the main cable runs out.

This floor lamp takes 12 standard small screw E14 light bulbs up to 60 Watts each. At present fitted & photographed with clear Candle shape light bulbs of 25 Watts, which are included in the price. Other E14 light bulb shapes could be used for a slightly different look.

This lamp has been fully newly rewired & PAT tested with earthed gold-tone silk cable, new brass lamp holders & new black plug. It can be used with a dimmer switch on the wall plate.

This floor lamp is all in very good condition. The frame is sound & stable. The solid brass surfaces have a warm aged patina developed over time adding character to the piece.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care while packing. This lamp would be wrapped securely in bubble wrap & an outer layer of card. It could easily fit in a box for safe transport with a courier or Fedex.

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
