Art Shades by Leonardi
Unexpected Originality for Beautiful Homes
Textile artist Teena Leonardi’s newest and most exciting works, Art Shades by Leonardi, are now available at Kim3 International in conjunction with Kim Kieler Gallery.
“Each Art Shade is inspired by illumination and beauty,” says Teena. “Plus, each shade is designed and hand-painted especially for the unusual, vintage lamps Kim finds on shopping expeditions.
The lamp bases include excellent examples of Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Eames Era and more.
The pairings range from fun and funky to seriously gorgeous and beyond.
“There is nothing else like this,” enthuses Kim. “The vintage lamp bases are friendly and wonderful discoveries, like unexpectedly running in to friends. Because Teena hand-paints a shade for each lamp, each is a true work of art,” explains Kim.
