When we moved into our old-fashioned home, we immediately started looking for furniture that accentuated its mid-twentieth century charm. This vintage lamp is one of the items we bought then that still has pride of place on my desk.
It has an Art Nouveau look to it, with its amber and caramel mosaic that’s mounted on a short classic-looking pillar-like stand. It looks a lot like a goblet that emits light. I also appreciate the that it’s an up-light lamp because as such it provides sufficient though not overbearing light for our entire study. So even though it is a desk lamp because the light bounces off of the ceiling, it creates a diffuse and pleasant glow in the entire room. It’s designed for a regular 40 watt light-bulb though I currently use a 4.5 watt LED filament bulb whose light is further muted somewhat by the mosaic and the resulting glow is definitely not a glare. I have it right behind and a little above my laptop (less than two feet away) and do not strain my eyes. At the same time, I get enough light to read by.
The lamp comes with a CFL fluorescent light bulb. Mine came separately in the mail after I had been using the lamp for a couple of days and I was initially confused as to why I received it. So if yours comes after you’ve had the lamp for a little bit, don’t worry; it really is yours. It’s a nice little bonus the lamp manufacturer throws in. Not that this little lamp needs it but it is a nice touch.
The study is where my husband and I do most of our work which means it’s filled with computer and electronics. Nonetheless, we it want to look as elegant as possible. This lamp is functional yet elegant and I greatly appreciate that.
Let me just add—I really like it.
