Wonderfully inventive and aptly named, this Seagull Desk Lamp has been cleverly repurposed by its maker Julia Horberry.
The totally individual and original table lamp has been largely made from an old of two-stroke outboard engine, manufactured by ‘British Seagull’ who were based in Poole,Dorset.
The classic engines were made from the early 1930s until the mid-1990s and were renowned for their rugged simplicity and reliability.
Just perfect for the seaside inspired home or for someone with a love of industrial design.
Julia is based in Cornwall in Porthtowan just minutes from the beach, where she spends many hours scouring the beaches and climbing the cliffs to reach hidden coves to collect items for her creations.
As you might expect her little workshop is made from all sorts of bit and bobs and its here between drinking coffee and looking out across the sea she makes each of her unique pieces.
The lamp is finished with colourful corded wiring, an in cable on/off switch and comes supplied with a LED filament bulb as shown.
