When you first see it aglow with its fine intricacies, it may not show, but the Wildflower collection started its path to existence thanks to Mary V. Walcott’s Oconee-Bells discovered in the Smithsonian Libraries and Archives Special Collections. Taking center stage is a touch of Danish modern on top of midcentury. Wildflower combines delicate, handmade ice glass flower petals, with equally delicate wispy hand-forged and recycled steel tubing and metal work. Available in gold or black.

Designer Ron Henderson’s love for science, aeronautics, and anything historical, began early in his career as a former pilot, Air Force Captain, and Boeing Engineer, with a degree in aerospace engineering (essentially rocket science). So, when the opportunity to collaborate with the Smithsonian presented itself, it was a lifelong dream come true. With nearly 155,000,000 artifacts in their collection to choose from, finding the ideal inspiration for lighting, furniture, mirrors, wall décor and accessory collections was a lot easier than, well, rocket science.view complete collection
