Porta Romana lighting and furniture – Style and Class in Chelsea and Worldwide

Decayed Gold Giraffe Lamp by Porta Romana lighting and furniture

Having explored 100% Design, Decorex, Tent, Clerkenwell, West London, Shoreditch and every other corner of the London Design Festival we jumped on a bus to go and see some old friends at Chelsea Harbour Design Centre. While we were there we found ourselves marveling at the splendor, class and style on display at the Porta Romana showroom. Founded in  1988 by Andrew and Sarah Hills their collection of  work, drawing on the finest skills of glassblowing, metalworking, sculpting and furniture making, is now also available in the USA.

We predict that the Decayed Gold Giraffe Lamp, shown above, will become a classic. Other examples of   Porta Romana’s sylish collection follow.

The first of two tables we feel compelled to share with you.  This is the French Brass Miro Console Table with a painted limestone top. The design is extraordinary, the workmanship and attention to detail needs to be seen to be believed.

Tricolour Rhomboid Console Table by Porta Romana

And finally, for now, the Tricolour Rhomboid Console Table. We have concentrated our quick look on some of  Porta Romana’s more unusual pieces but all of their collection is distinctive for its quality, elegance, style and class. By the time we got to Chelsea we had seen an awful lot of furniture, fabrics, lights, fixtures and wall coverings.  Still there was a great deal to lift the spirits, not least Porta Romana.
