The Jamb Reproduction Collection Supplement has arrived. It is a beautiful hand-stitched tactile book that showcases chimneypieces, lighting and furniture.
‘Since producing our comprehensive reproduction catalogue in 2010 we have been tirelessly refining and developing new chimneypiece designs. With the Country House aesthetic and our vast, ever changing, collection of antique mantels still very much at the heart of our design ethos, we continue to ensure that all our chimneypieces are individually bench made by the finest craftsmen employing traditional 18th century skill and techniques. The new collection focuses particularly on clean architectural lines to produce elegant, stylish mantels that will work beautifully in both traditional and contemporary settings.’
Charlotte Freemantle, co-found of Jamb
Jamb’s unrivalled reputation for dealing in superior quality antique fire surrounds continues in its fine reproduction fireplaces made by highly skilled craftsmen who use traditional 18th and 19th century techniques. The reproduction lighting and furniture is also made to the same exacting standards and designed using historical reference.
I love the stark simplicity and distinctive purity of the black marble fireplaces, the hanging copper Aspley Dish Light, the Cobbler stool and I want to highlight the Conroy wall sconce. Its 1920s influence makes it one of Jamb’s most dynamic and versatile wall lights to date and Will Fisher is passionate about it.
‘ It has been a heartfelt journey to get to this point. It has taken over a year and a half to totally re-engineer, redesign and update it to work in both home and commercial environments including IP rating for bathrooms. The end result is beyond expectation.’
The Conroy has a heavy brass fixture with a hand crafted central opaline glass shade that is of staggering quality. For Will Fisher the acid test was creating something that not only looked amazing in situ and lit but is also weighty and tactile.
‘I can’t bear it when you go to pick something up that looks beautiful but is actually as light as one of my children’s toy.’
The Conroy wall lights promises to be a winner due to the sheer versatility of use. It’s perfect for so many different settings within the home or hotel. For the bathroom, hallways, and kitchens – any space needing a run of wall lights. Another key design criteria was for it to evolve accessibility with an everyday aesthetic without ‘dumbing down’ on quality and Jamb has done this beautifully.
Jamb does everything beautifully. Its new supplement catalogue captures the latest reproduction collections and gives each crafted piece space to breath.
