lamp base detail

The Majorelle Gardens is a two and half acre botanical garden and artist's landscape garden in Marrakech, Morocco. It was designed by the French artist, Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) who earned a reputation as a celebrated Orientalist painter. Though Majorelle's watercolors are largely forgotten today, the gardens remain as his creative masterpiece. The special shade of bold cobalt blue, inspired by the colored tiles he had seen around Marrakech and in Berber burn-houses, was used extensively in the garden and its buildings and is named after him, bleu Majorelle—Majorelle Blue.
