General Lamp / February 18, 2019 / Aadhya Kidd.
So you have decided to purchase a lamp. There are numerous design questions to consider such as height, girth, color, style, function and of course price. But have you seriously considered searching exclusively for a vintage lamp ? Probably not. Our entire culture is so strongly influenced by advertising of mass produced products including lamps, that we are programmed to think only in terms of what has been presented by the mass merchants.
Here is a real life story that happened just this very week. A very nice interior designer from Gastonia who specializes in fine high design home decor came into my lamp shop here in Lincolnton, North Carolina. She was looking for a unique and special lamp for one of her clients. After visiting with us and looking around for some time, she found a 1 of a kind cast metal and onyx lamp which we had designed and made here.
Aesthetically this has huge repercussions because we all end up owning the same home decor items and nothing is exclusive or unique. You end up buying the same lamp that your neighbor bought, that his neighbor bought and so forth.
Table Lamps have one feature that distinguishes them from other kinds of lamps; they are highly portable. Table lamps can function as task lamps, ambient lamps, and accenting lamps easily. They can also be used to add a touch of decorative flair, even when they are not used. Table lamps are generally adjustable and their shades too can be changed as required.
