On a recent visit to London, designer Amy Morris discovered a collection of works by British artist and architect Victor Pasmore. What stuck with her was a captivating gold hue that appeared in the midcentury abstract paintings, juxtaposed with crisp black and white. “The yellow finds perfect pitch against the shadowy lines of a winter landscape,” Morris says. In early 2019, look for her new lighting collection with Charleston-based Avrett, available at ADAC’s R.Hughes. The artisan-crafted sconces, chandeliers, and flush mounts take notes from high fashion and French Modern antiques and exhibit this inspired interplay of warm and cool.
