After studying product design at Leeds University, British designer Charlie Bowles joined Original BTC, the lighting company founded by his father, Peter Bowles. The London Table Lamp (2010) is Charlie's first solo lighting design, and it's clear that this young designer is in keeping with the family's tradition "to design and produce lights that you are instantly at home with, that will fit easily and comfortably for many years to come." Suspended from the polished chrome-plated steel arm and base, the aluminum shade is available in yellow, black or grey. Matching the shade color is a braided cotton-covered cord that is woven through the curved chrome arm for a neatly tailored finish. Every lamp by Original BTC has this braided cord, which was designed by Peter Bowles, who snipped the cord off the family iron when it gave him an idea for something better than an ordinary plastic cord. (That's one way to get out of ironing.) Bulb (not included): 40W/GLS/E26. Made in England.
