A Palm-Tree Floor Lamp in a Beatriz Silveira design.  
With an aura that reckons the glamorous decor of The Hollywood Regency era these brass trees make their way into today's interiors bringing prestige to any type of home decor style.  Sometimes these gilt trees are floor lamps as in the case of Daphne Guinness’s home where a 1950’s Jansen palm-tree floor lamp graces the entry.  In other cases however they are simply decorating pieces as in the Hell's Kitchen apartment of Cathy Lerebours, which I helped decorate.  She found the gilt palm-tree at an auction.  Take a look below at some homes with metal trees as decorating objects.
