Currey & Company Cactus Lamp
New Currey High Point Market intros include nature-inspired pieces.

This April at High Point Market, Currey & Company is debuting new designs drawing inspiration from the natural world whether in motifs or materials. Table lamps have taken a step forward in design construction and choices of materials. Lamplight is  one of the simplest ways to add atmospheric layers to any room and can easily  transform a room as dramatically as new paint. The new Cactus Table Lamp and  matching vases are made of composite slathered in varied shades of green that read like verdigris. Visit Currey & Company at IHFC, M110 on Main Street during High Point Market.

The artisans who created the finish painstakingly applied the liquid to make each  piece look aged and like real cactus. The lamp is topped with a natural oval linen  shade which is so practical when you need a lamp that will fit in a tight space. The  vases will add the perfect touch of nature to any room vignette plus all shades of  green are having a moment in home décor.  

The patterning on the surface of the Geologie Table Lamp takes great skill to create  because it is glazed while it is on the potter’s wheel, which requires steady hand/eye  coordination. Made of porcelain in a mix of beige, pale gray, and brown glazing, the  layers represent the stratum of the earth’s core. It is topped with a textured beige  shade which is held in place by a matching finial. With mid-century modern lines, the  Lamartine Table Lamp has a poetic pattern that swirls along its surface with curving folds of green glass – all mouth-blown. The green lamp is topped with a box-pleated,  natural linen drum shade. 

The Weeping Sasaya Chandelier was inspired by bamboo leaves and the downward leaning masterpiece from nature: the weeping willow. The delicacy of the stems and  the leaves on this lovely flowing fixture make it a graceful design statement for any  space with biophilic details. The textured sage finish gives it a green hue  representing the very best combination of calm and comfort that the natural world  offers. The Rue de Bac Large Butterflies are encased specimens made of blue paper  with black accents that are displayed within a clear glass dome. Sitting atop a wood base in a black finish, the bright sculptural object stands 16.5” tall. Named for the  Parisian Street on which a famous French taxidermy is located, the artful butterflies  that flutter in this sculpture would feel right at home in the cabinet of curiosities that  holds some of the most remarkable wonders of entomology. 

Additions to the Marjorie Skouras Collection 

Marjorie Skouras’s love affair with Mexico and its people began at a young age.  On her first visit to Mexico, she had an immediate connection with the country’s  culture, and the flora and fauna found there. Today she lives on a ranch in the  Yucatan Peninsula where her creativity is nourished by the environment, which is  evident in the products she designs for Currey & Company. 
This April, the company adds six new product designs to her collection. For the  new Diego Chandelier, the story begins years ago when Ms. Skouras was a  student at UCLA studying art history and pre-Columbian art. While a student, she  spent time with a friend in Beverly Hills whose mother was a famous actress. The  film star was a devoted art collector who owned a painting of women depicted  with calla lilies by Mexican artist Diego Riveria. Marjorie was mesmerized by the  painting with its powerful rendition of the flowers. Calla lilies along with agave  varietals are evocative of Mexico and have influenced the designer with her new  products.

New Website 

Currey also debuted a new ecommerce website in March, representing a significant investment and progression in the company’s online strategy. Designed to serve interior designers, retailers and other trade customers in a  more streamlined, easy-to-use format, the site also celebrates the beauty of the  company’s extensive product line with an intense focus on imagery. 

“We have put a lot of effort into creating a streamlined, elegant ecommerce  platform that meets our customers where they are,” said Jenny Heinzen York, Vice President of Marketing.” 

Some new features and highlights: 

• Showroom availability by product. Interested in seeing a piece in person,  the new site will direct you to our trade showrooms where the piece is on  display. 
• Retail price and stock levels available before login. 
• A new Favorites tool that is available pre-login, so designers can share the  site with their customers without accessing trade pricing. 
• A freight rate calculator, so there are no surprises at checkout. • Streamlined registration/application process that moves customers through  our system more quickly and allows them to revisit and track an application  status. 
• Easier check-out and the ability to save multiple credit cards in a wallet. 
“We have put a much greater emphasis on our photography, reshooting, re cropping, and investing in more angles so that our customers feel confident in  what they are ordering from us. A cool zoom feature helps to highlight the fine  details and finish-work that we are known for and helps to convey the value of  what we create,” Heinzen York said.
