Rough Diamond Collection by Lee Broom

He sourced vintage furniture pieces into updated contemporary statements by the use of LIGHTS. There are 6 pieces, The top picture is the "Club Chair" a traditional chesterfield adorned with fairground jewel lightbulbs. The next piece is the "Bright on Bistro Chair" an antique classic bentwood chair rescued from a tea house in Brighton, accentuated and highlighted with delicate turquoise neon. The third piece is "Luminaire Bergere" , an unfinished version of the Parisian relic.

"these pieces would have had pride of place in any room in their day, so I wanted to give them new life but without forgetting their identity and journey." says Lee.. The result = Dramatic, strikingly familiar, unusual, BC?!
