This pair of ceramic lamps are a vision to behold. The contrast in color gives them an edgy and bold appeal, while the soft contours allow for a gentle feel. Unmarked and not dated. The lamps have such a great simple shape with a bold design. They would fit in almost any space with their neutral tones and organic pattern. This is a very unique set with similar designs on each lamp that complement each other perfectly. This set appears to be Italian and from the late 50’s to early 60’s. Shades not included.
The furniture and decor introduced in the 1950s and 1960s were clean, sophisticated, and inclusive. Despite the passage of time, mid-century designs have remained a staple in interior architecture. Every home needs a little wow factor, and in a mid-century designed home, it’s often the lighting that makes the standout contribution. Metal or glazed ceramic finishes, with their natural sheen and sleekness, take the lead (think ceramic lamps, brass and chrome accents), and don’t be afraid to update the mid-century style with a glam-inspired twist. When thinking about shape, starbursts, sputniks, orbs,elliptical shapes and other chic geometric lighting are great choices. Mid-century floor lamps and table lamps feature either very straight, geometric lines or round, curved contour. The very contrasting shapes of these ceramic lamps offer a very bold position for lighting in your room. Vintage Mid-Century ceramic lamps exist, but are harder to find in colors that are easy to mix in with today’s decor. Finding such a pair in great condition can be extremely hard to find. When mixing contemporary and vintage styles it’s very easy to incorporate a mid-century lighting accent because it adds a much needed dose of class and simplicity. Much like the minimalist movement, midcentury modern decor calls for simplicity and functionality in its decorative pieces, with simple flairs of fashion like statement lighting, warm woodwork and metallic finishes. The midcentury modern calling card can be found in its low profile structure, with sleek, uncluttered lines in both geometric and organic forms. Traditional materials (such as wood) as well as nontraditional (such as metal, glass, vinyl and plywood) are used interchangeably in midcentury modern decor, juxtaposing (often contrasting) materials.
