A Candleholder of moulded metal: a late Baroque design paying homage to deluxe decorator Dorothy Draper.
Hand-forged metal forms the orchid bulb, crafted with care and painted in Italy. The design is delicate and the pattern playful, but adding a candle is where the magic happens. The shapes give a rococo glow, resulting in flickering patterns dancing upon the wall, exuberant and exciting. They give a bit of Hollywood Regency befitting Hollywood royalty.
Fewer artists had more fun than Draper. She delighted in design writ large across the home - her sense of style always sought to be big and bold. Her passion for contrasts (yet with an acute awareness of balance) allowed her to mix high and low, then and now, light and dark. She stands the test of time because there's no substitute for pure joy in decoration. This is one of our forever pieces for a reason: fun never goes out of fashion.
Draper once said, "if it looks right, it is right". But if you are looking for a little guidance, JJ suggests adding a tea candle at supper - or placing it upon a sideboard needing a bit more zest.
