Table lamp shades over the years:
When you think of Art Nouveau, images of stained glass and decorative designs are what immediately come to mind. This era, which spanned from around 1890 through to 1910, was all about the embodying of the natural form, flowers, plants, curved lines and flowing structures. It was generally considered as an entire philosophy of life, not only in art and design. Lamps that are inspired by the Art Nouveau era are colourful, artistic and often romantic in feel, such as the Beauty Accent Lamp and the Roses & Scrolls Table Lamp.
The Jazz Age or the Roaring Twenties, as some would call this era, was a time of economic boom. Celebrating and dancing through the night are the best ways to remember this uplifting period. With fashion in this era being inspired by the legendary Coco Chanel, cropped haircuts, flappers and shift dresses, it was no doubt it transcended into the furniture at the time. This is when some beautiful lamps like the, Arabesque Fabric With Fringe Table Lamp came about. The delicate and intricate designs of lamps like this one truly represent what this time period stood for.
The sixties were not all about flower power and free love; it was also about the changing attitudes of the people and a move towards a more modern interpretation on all aspects of life. Lamps like the Sachie Stacked Spheres show the more sophisticated elements of the 1960’s style. The spherical and ‘Mod’ design is an attribute that become a common trait of this era and you will see this reflected in many other pieces of furniture in this time.
The seventies brought on a revolution in interior design and we saw a shift from the bright colours and disconnected views of the sixties to a deeper and more appreciative understanding of the natural and spiritual world. The seventies was a time when environmental issues were of big concern. Inspiration for decor was drawn from a variety of sources and innovative colours, fabrics and textures were explored. Some of the most memorable shades of colours from the seventies are the deep yellows, oranges and browns and these are all encompassed by the Buffalo Table Lamp. The natural elements of this era are represented well in a lamp such as the Fern Outdoor Table Lamp.
Finally we have the modern and contemporary age that we are currently revelling in. This time enjoys clean cut lines, simplistic and minimalist designs and pure block colours. The Metal Contemporary table lamp is a prime example with its straight, upright no fuss body and rectangular white shade.
Lamps and interior design generally reflect the changing and flourishing attitudes and views of the current society. Now not only do we draw inspiration from our own times, but like many great artists and philosophers have done before, we draw inspiration from our greatest eras and create replica items to bring back all that we appreciate and wish to remember in these times.
