Marjorie Skouras Designs for Currey and Company
Marjorie Skouras is a prominent interior designer who describes her style as “fairly traditional, but almost always with a twist, and playfulness is a constant element.” Her first collection for Currey & Company debuted in 2010, and our collaboration with her continues to yield daring, beautiful, elegant lighting pieces. Her travels to lush gardens around the world and her love of nature have influenced her designs, which rings true to Currey as garden inspiration is the heart and soul of many of our products.
Marjorie began her career in photography and spent 17 years in the film industry. Her transition to interior design and building her successful firm, Marjorie Skouras Design LLC, was a natural one. Her diverse projects, signature collections and distinctive personal style have earn her international recognition. Her latest project is her move from her decades-long home in Hollywood to Merida, The Yucatan—with her family and three dachshunds in tow. Ms. Skouras has recently completed the restoration of an Art Nouveau mansion where she will continue to design new products, commune with nature and enjoy life.
Of course known for taking symbols from nature and turning them into the most exuberant of motifs, Marjorie designed the Figuier Table Lamp, introduced in October 2018. Back-to-back leaves, made of cast aluminum in an antique brass finish with subtle green veining, seem so supple they are surely being stirred by a gentle breeze. The slender stem and base that support them have been treated to a black forged finish that contrasts the glowing leaves, which brighten when light wafts from beneath the eggshell linen shade.
