The battle cry of Americaâ??s abstract expressionists was â??you have to know the rules before you can break them.â? Proving that our designers know their proportions, the flowing glazes on the cream ceramic body of the Rothko table lamp, which graduate from deep green to turquois, cascade into a clear absence of color at the perfect point. Reflecting the free spirit of the 1960's, the lamp, which stands a statuesque 41â? tall, is fitted with an oversized shade in vanilla linen and is perched upon an optic crystal base so that the draining away to paleness is left unhindered.
