| Augusta | Base & Shade H 29 x W 12 The scatter-brained artist. Like so many creative people, she has the outward appearance of being collected and sturdy but in her head she is globs of ideas and swatches. Her quarky hat expresses that perfectly. She reminds me of Lily Tomlins character from Frankie & Grace... if you haven't seen it, WATCH IT, its soooo good. Her neck is drapped with glossy Oak beads of teal, yellow and grape. Her top is dark chocolate with an ivory collar, a frosted white glass dome makes up her beautiful curves and her pumpkin orange belt is finished off with her stunning victorian inspired claw shoes. #KwiatDesigns #Augusta #lampe #interiordesign #InteriorLighting #Ryan #oneofakind #lumiere #original #lamps #lighting #lampdesign #custom #madeincanada #handmade #handpainted #lampshade #inspire #Electrical #trendy #artistry #art #orange #chocolate #paint #splatter #inspiration #conceptiondelalampe #éclairage

◇ Merryweather ◇ Base & Shade H 29.5 x W 14 Straight out of Pixiehollow, She was my first try at resin and now I am obssessed with it. The cedar rail I used had this deep natural split, so I filled it with pink babies breath and shards of tinted mirror, then encased it all in a high gloss resin. When the light hits just right, it is like a glimpse into another world. The mushroom shaped amber glass fits perfectly with the woodland theme. Her neck piece is merlot and vanilla painted with evergreen. The main hardware is all sprayed with an aged copper, which radiates when the light is on. Her hat is two seperate fabrics, a crushed green silk paisley print and a great earth blend on all for corners. #KwiatDesigns #Merryweather #lampe #lamps #interiordesign #design #oneofakind #handmade #handpainted #lumiere #lighting #interiorlighting #inspiration #electrical #madeincanada #earthy #amberglass #driftwood #flowers #resin #copper

♡Ophelia♡ Base & Shade H25 x W16 The Solitary Princess, a little rebellious, sensual, risky and of course stunning. Like Cinderella at night, she absolutely shines. Its very different when building a lamp for a particular person, instead of freedom of thought provoking creation, You try to capture all the qualities of the owner. Their lifestyle, attitudes, achievments.... it all goes into consideration, from the colour palette to each piece I put together, right up to the linining on the shade. The brass base is distressed with linen white and charcoal grey. Stacked with a frosted white dome, capped with a vintage soft pink dish flipped upside-down. The glass prism was what I really wanted to shine, so I painted the pole underneath the same soft pink that is in the owners room and made everything else a matte finish. I took alot of time to pick the colour combinations on the wooden spindle, I think I painted and stripped it atleast 7 times. LOL. All the electrical hardware is sprayed a high gloss chrome. Her hat is a dove grey lined drum with a white and soft pink stitched lace over top. #KwiatDesigns #ophelia #lampe #lamps #lampshade #custom #CanadianDesign #oneofakind #interiordesign #pink #white #dove #lace #Electrical #chrome #commission #sold #tackaberry #interior #lighting #lumiere #lampedesign #photography #photographie

~Phoebe~ H 26 X W 14 The Flower Child, Free Spirited, Zen Momma. Her trends are carried from the 70's, her ideals are rich with protest and not giving a damn. She embodies the cultures that drive her spirit, from the Japanese art of Reiki to the seedy basement parties with a black light. Phoebe is always the life of the party and the shoulder to cry on. You can't help but love her. Her metal work is painted a true white, accompanied by a deep chocolate brown. Making the focal point the gorgeous lemon yellow vase. Her harp piece is decorated in a metallic Purple and a shot of Teal. Her Hat is a wide squared triangle, wrapped in a gorgeous deep Orange silk fabric with summer toned accents. Finished off by the groovy brown beads to shine under the light. #KwiatDesigns #sold #oneofakind #custom #base #shade #lampe #lamps #lampshade #interiordesign #design #throwback #Tracy #orange #groovy #hippie #glass #metal #lumiere #CanadianDesign #handpainted #inspire

* The Dowager * H 27 x W 9 Once a very proud and vocal presence amoung her peers. A mover and shaker in a Patriarchal society, She used her status to make sure that her kinship never went unheard. I approached her creation as a strong woman in her twilight season, even though she appears that she is in a state of mourning for the days behind her, she hasn't lost any of her severity or her grandiose poise. Her base is from an antique brass oil lamp that I refinished in matte black and the legs in a high gloss black, while the impressions on all for sides I used a glossy purple gel that almost glows like a living organism. The purple vase gives her the most stunning curvy shape. I chose a decorative metal key midsection specifically to show a locked heart, not easily unlocked. In a male dominated world, she has learned to choose her battles and loves very carefully to achieve all that she has. It is decorated with the same gel as the base. The neck piece, right up to the harp all a mix of matte and gloss black. The pull chain is beaded charcoal and Pearlescent purple. Her hat is a purple tinted charcoal silk overlayed with black lace, while the finial sits on top as a perfect finish to a distinguished outfit. #KwiatDesigns #Ryan #Dowager #DowntonAbbey #inspiration #lamp #lamps #interiordesign #decorationinterieur #paris #oneofakind #lampe #lampshade #metal #LED #custom #lampdesign #damemaggiesmith #pbs #purple #mauve #noir #black #gothic #detail #handpainted #lace #goth

~ Maya ~ Shade & Base H 31 X W 11 Her name came to me after reading about the foundations of everyday words in foriegn cultures, that In the Americas, have become names. In Hebrew , Maya means "a spring" or "a brook" and that lept off the page right away. To me, Her hat is like looking down at a slow moving stream pushing fallen leaves to an unkown destination while the silver light of the sun dances off the ripples. It is lined in a soft Aqua silk. I followed that same spirit through her body. The vase piece and the pull chain all have a feeling and look of encased water, ever flowing but never changing, I loved that dichotomy. The wood spindle is from a candle stick I found at a great little antique shop in Crosby, Ontario, I stained it a silvery grey aswell. The cord is cloth wrapped, Aqua colour aswell to keep the essence from head to toe. When she is lit at night, she gives off a gorgeous blue hue that is like moon light. #kwiatdesigns #lamp #lampdesign #custom #sold #art #interiordesign #lampshade #oneofakind #lampe #lumiere #LED #abajour #paris #CanadianDesign #decorationinterieur

Waiting for a lamp to present itself and jump out can be a daunting task... espeacially trying to look past the mismatched colours and pieces. Are any of these layouts speaking to you ?

:RUPERT: $175 Base & Shade H 33 x W 17.5 My tall stately aristocrat. He is a show stopper. Everytime he enters a room, you can't help but stop what you're doing in curious awe. His colourful attitude makes any space he is occupying interesting with his eclectic demeanor. His hat is tailored from fine fabrics picked up on travels across the globe, detailed to perfection. The emerald green tulip vase sits atop a gothic cage, holding his truths inside for only a select few to see. The amber funnel lets off a warm glow relfecting the light when his is turned on. His base and accessories are a burnt ivory colour along with matte black.

SOLD ▪Mokey▪ Base & Shade H 25.5 x W 13.5 When I was out at the fabric store, I saw this insanely fun pattern and thought of Fraggle Rock instantly. Tucked away in her cubby hole, warmed by great Literature and a warm fire, Mokey sits inhaling insight. She doesn't care about the newest fashion or whats trendy, she is swept away by a great tragedy, swirling romance, poetic lyrics and Chamomile tea . Her pine wood base is antiqued in a deep red with gravel blue and gold streams streaking across. Her book collection spans from publishings dated 1922 to 1947. Which are held down by a rocky coaster. I didn't want anything parallel or streamlined on her to resemble just how many seasons she had seen. So the warped forest green goblet fit perfectly. The wooden spindle is from an old Oak dinning set that my Grandparents had, I thought it was time to let it find a new journey and purpose. I finished off her with a collar, distressed in the same tones as all the wood. Her hat speaks for itself. Its wild, earthy and unkept like all Fraggles hair. It is lined with a crushed steel blue that glows when lit.

SOLD .Audrey. - Base & Shade H 13 x W 7 I was commissioned to do a bedside lamp. At the same time I had just finished Interview with the Vampire by @annericeauthor , so to say that there isnt alittle bit of the child vampire Claudia inspiration involved here would be an understatement. Child like in appearance, Porcelain skinned, soft and innocent but that is only skin deep. Her ancient soul is mirrored in her accessories. Her Cream/Cappucino emossed hat is trimmed with Ivory french gimp braided trim and surrounded by elegant silver and glass beading. Her body is a creamy gloss over ivory, with her collar is decorated in silver etchings over a wedgewood blue canvas background and banded with espresso.

SOLD Just posted on https://www.facebook.com/KwiatDesigns/ • Edith • Base & Shade H 24 x W 14 100% inspiried by the character of the same name from Downton Abbey. She isn't obvious or flashy when she puts herself together. She put together some hand-me-downs and it works flawlessly, giving her a style that is all her own. The strongest woman that is never the center of attention. Ok, the technical stuff. LOL The sandstone painted brass base holds this gorgeous glass goblet. I found this great metal leaf ring, painted it navy p, it seats the white clay sphere. The neck is solid brass painted antique red, matching the socket and harp. Her hat is a stretched paisley print thats is trimmed with antiqued gold lace.

Message me anytime, check out my facebook page found on my main page * Lydia * ($150) base & shade H 29 x W 15 I wanted to do a regal, high end, semi-modern lamp. I knew that I was going to keep the palette monochromatic, which was a struggle in itself becuase I love the expression of different tones coming together. Once, I added the black high gloss with the crystal pieces, the damask print I found for the shade came together naturally. Like Beetlejuices sidekick, Lydia was born !
