Fairfax Oak Lampstand, Large

Choose shade



A closer look at Fairfax

Whether you want an elegantly architectural lamp or one that doesn’t take up too much room on a table, Fairfax is a tall and slim design influenced by classical columns. It comes in two heights as well as two materials: this one’s oak, which means it’ll also add texture.

The perfect pairing

You could team almost any lampshade with this base, but we know that it’s not always easy to do that online. So, we’ve chosen a few we think matches it best – Oliver and James – for you. If you’d like to order the lamp shade on its own, you can do that here. Or, if you would like to just order the base, select the option without the shade above.

Design detail

You’ll find a mix of curving and angular shapes in Fairfax’s design – one to highlight the other. Its stem has turned details at the top and bottom, which are balanced by the plain middle. And in the base – which adds weight to the design – a swooping arc joins two squares.

The material

Because it’s a natural material, oak will make your space feel warm and welcoming. It also has a distinctive grain (good for contrasting with smooth, painted surfaces) which we’ve made more obvious by brushing it to remove the softer fibres and give it more texture.

The finish

The subtle grey-toned finish comes from the protective Seasoned Oak IsoGuard® oil. It looks completely natural, but gives Fairfax a slightly weathered feel compared to honey-coloured, brand-new oak. It stops it feeling too formal. The flex is a brown silk, to tie in not stand out.
