"Vanessa Bell" & "Omega" = a crazy coincidence.

As many of you who have studied architecture & design history know, there was ounce an innovative design group called "The Omega Workshop". Started in 1913, it is widely credited for helping the general public move past traditional Edwardian design, and embrace the Modern Movement { At least in the world of textiles.}
Vanessa Bell {Wife of Clive Bell} was invited by Roger Fry to be one of the Directors at the Omega Workshop, and worked as a commissioned painter and artist for them for many years.
Vanessa Bell {Wife of Mark Bell} on the other hand, is the Owner of Omega Lighting Design in Berkeley California, makers of one-of-a-kind light fixtures for clients looking to tastefully evolve classic rooms in their home.
Many who notice this quircky alignment ask us if it is intentional, or some how a nod to the past.
Although we specialize in period correct lights from the late Vanessa Bell's heyday, we have to honestly answer that question with, "No, just a crazy coincidence."

Unless, of course, you believe in reincarnation...........
