When John Rosselli opened his first antique shop in New York, it immediately became a staple destination for top interior designers and architects. His workroom would eventually become John Rosselli & Associates and expand to 4 showrooms across the country. His lighting collection perfectly reflects his timeless sense of style and lifelong commitment to quality, which is why we are shining the designer spotlight on John Rosselli this month.
Famous for his reproductions of antique accessories and furniture, Mr. Rosselli designed his lighting collection using finishes that would patina beautifully over time. The Natalya Chandelier above is available in Hand-Rubbed Antique Brass and Sheffield Nickel.
The above is a sketch of Mr. Rosselli’s exotic Yasaman Sconce. “Yasaman” is the Persian name for jasmine, a climbing flower.
We love the way @shegetsitfromhermomma styled a pair in the brass finish above this gorgeous mantel.
Mr. Rosselli draws inspiration from an eclectic mixture of periods and styles. For instance, the body of the Makis Floor Lamp above is decorated with an opulent, hand-painted Greek key motif and dons a contemporary paper shade.
The glamorous Mia Pendant transports us to the Art Deco era. The crystal and brass fringe gives the illusion of movement when lit!
The handsome Miguel Double Sconce makes a big statement for its small size. There is no better example of Mr. Rosselli’s keen attention to detail than the tiny rings of stars around the candle bases.
The open framework of the Baltic Lantern features Renaissance-style iron quatrefoils. Place them in an entry, hallway or even in the boudoir! We love the Gilded Iron finish in this bedroom by @lauraleehome.
