IN­TE­RIOR DE­SIGNER ADE­LAIDE BRAGG ON THE LAUNCH OF HER LIFE­STYLE BRAND, BRAGG & CO.

Australian House & Garden - - Insider -

Bragg & Co came about be­cause I was strug­gling to source the lamps I wanted here in Aus­tralia. Lamps are a great dec­o­rat­ing tool be­cause they cre­ate lay­ers of in­ter­est in a room. They bring an in­jec­tion of colour or tex­ture and a change of height; they soften a space and set the mood. They also cre­ate bal­ance, of­ten adding sym­me­try on ei­ther side of a fire­place or sofa. I pre­fer lamps to down­lights or pen­dants. At home, I have a pair ei­ther side of the fire­place in my sit­ting room, a sin­gle lamp on a sofa ta­ble, floor lamps and ta­ble lamps in the hall, plus pairs ei­ther side of all the beds and three more in the study. We de­signed all of our lamps with ver­sa­til­ity in mind, so they can be used in con­tem­po­rary

or clas­sic looks. The dou­ble gourd, onion and gin­ger jar are clas­sic shapes, which we have given a mod­ern twist with a sim­ple yet stylish per­spex plinth – this draws the eye to the shape rather than a heavy base. The colour­ways are gor­geous: a choice of mod­ern ‘pop’ hues (Yolk Yel­low, Co­ral (pic­tured), Lac­quer Red, Marsh­mal­low Pink, Turquoise) and ‘clas­sic’ (Tor­toise­shell, Navy, Caramel, Moss, Sea Green and White). The lamps are priced from $990; shades from $150.

Our next col­lec­tion is in de­vel­op­ment. More shapes and colours are be­ing added to the range… some lovely earthy colours with dif­fer­ent fin­ishes. Look out for them in 2018. It’s a dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion, but my favourite lamp has to be the dou­ble-gourd ta­ble lamp in Caramel. It goes with every­thing. # ade­laide­bragg.com.au/brag­gandco
