JB Hirsch Home Decor
There is a level of craftsmanship where the skill of the craftsman is more akin to the gift of an artist, and the object crafted stands on its own, regardless of its utility. The artisans in China who craft the boxes imported by JB Hirsch Home Decor are proud benefactors of a skill passed to them through uncounted generations in that ancient land. These decorative boxes are built to be handed down to other benefactors, the descendents of the purchaser. With that knowledge, the Chinese artisans find their own immortality, and it is all based on the quality of their labor.
Study the Atlantis Box. The wood is finished with perfection to bring out the rare character of burled graining and the warm contrasts of the multiple shades of its burnt orange hue. The metallic finish of the legs, trim and adornments are rich in detail, styled to render a certain stance, a particular poise, unseen in humbler boxes.
The Wilmington Box is all about the painting that adorns its circumference and graces its lid. Against a deep, black green background, a pattern of foliage and flora encompass the single circular wall in a swirling pattern more symmetrical than nature, less tame than a garden. It is a magnificent dwarf rotunda on three golden finished wooden spheres for feet; a matching sphere, it wears as crown.
The imported boxes cannot be ignored, and JB Hirsch Home Décor Table Lamps also shine. The lamp selection is populated with wide range of vase style bases, but that 'style' lends itself to variations in a range with too much breadth for being tagged as sub-styles. Any décor, anywhere, has a perfect place for one of these lamps.
It is too bad the word 'elegant' is buttoned on so many products, even the most lavishly decorated. That could by the reason JB Hirsch calls one of its most striking lamps, "Simplicity.” Esthetic perfection often comes through the understated, subtle seduction of simplicity. That is an attraction founded in graceful lines rather than color contrasts or ornamentation. Grace is the true character of elegance. Not austere, but fluid.
