We want to get one thing straight: Scallops will always claim a place in our hearts—we love them on shelves, tabletops, backsplashes, and all sorts of other things. But if you’re looking for a fresh take on the wavy look, the lighting in Miami-based artist and textile designer Èlan Byrd’s latest Lulu and Georgia collection should do it. Among the new products, which includes pillows and rugs, we’re most into the elegant swoop of the lampshades across a mix of styles, starting with the Terrene wicker pendants.
With her first foray into the category for Lulu and Georgia, Byrd leaned into an interplay of materials, architecture, and woven textiles (just like she does across her other designs). The Terrene, which is constructed from matte black metal and ever-so-slightly wavy rattan, is finished with a sleek black leather stitched edge. The silhouette can find a place in both a home that has a coastal grandma streak as well as one with relaxed Cali-cool vibes. Available in both 17-inch ($198) and 25-inch ($298) diameters, you could pair them up over a kitchen island or hang one of the larger versions as a statement piece over a dining table.
That stitched edge? It’s echoed across other lighting in the collection, including a table lamp by the same name; another carrying the title Saguaro; and the Arroyo line, which brings a decidedly Western-inspired look to the shape. Contrasting camel-colored leather offsets the white linen shades across a pendant lamp, floor lamp, chandelier, table lamp, and adjustable sconce. Pair them with the likes of her Tempo rug or one of the Mosaic pillows. We’ll tip our hats to that.
