Amazing transition from wall sconce to table
James Magni has brought the original Felix Agostini cast bronze wall sconce back to life. It was first produced in the 50's or 60's and it is one of my favorite lamps. When James was inspired to re-figure the sconce frame into a table, which I think is genius, I half expected Mr. Agostini to turn over in his grave wondering why he didn't think of that himself! The table just won an award from California Home + Design for best new product. James is now represented at Kneedler-Fauchere in West Hollywood. By the way, James is one of my favorite contemporary interior designers besides myself of course and a few others.
