When International Market Centers launched TrendWatch and asked us to submit images for each trend, we knew we had a perfect match with Currey's Go-Go Pendant and the Transitions theme. The Go-Go Pendant was named after the go-go boot, designed in the 1960's by space-age fashion designer, Andre Courreges. By the 1970's, Mr. Courreges was dressing the likes of Jackie Kennedy, Twiggy, and Catherine Deneuve. The 70's was a time of great tumult and promise—much like today! It was the "Me" decade. Isn't that similar to the Millennials of 2017? The environmental movement started in the 70's as did women's rights transitioning from the "Love Generation" of the 60's.
Geometry played a big part in fashion and home décor. The 70's story is all about the return to natural materials, brass, wood, leather, rope and
rattan. The Go-Go Pendant is hand-finished in brass with an opaque glass cylinder fitted in the interior of the hanging light. The repeated circle pattern creates a design which allows for diffused light to emit.
Painstakingly woven using traditional techniques, the Antibes Chandelier, is an impeccable marriage of artistry and quality construction. Natural rattan forms the body of this geometric chandelier supported by a painted khaki wrought iron frame.
The lamp body of the Moirrey Table Lamp was inspired by the textured pattern of a sea urchin. The ceramic form is finished in metallic gold glaze and black antiquing. A black shantung shade completes this contemporary look.
So whether it is 1970 or 2017, we all want products that are functional, fit the scale of our homes, and offer a great look with lasting appeal.
