Weekly Spotlight: Five New Lamps for the Annual Lighting Sale

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

There are only three more weeks left of our Annual Lighting Sale, so for this week’s spotlight we are highlighting five of our newest lighting selections that are also part of the Sale. You can find more sizes and styles of lighting in our catalog and on our website, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for future updates about our current selection.

Our Watering Can Table Lamp and Milk House Lantern Lamp are two new lighting solutions designed in the primitive style. The former features a textured watering can base topped with a burlap shade; this combination is timeless and will add charm as well as light to the rooms of your home.

The latter is inspired by primitive milk house lanterns that were used on farms. This one is electric to fit your modern lifestyle, but its textured brown finish, glass panels and mirrored backing add an antiqued look to any space.

Also inspired by vintage design is our Bramhall Table Lamp (also available as a Floor Lamp). The beautifully constructed base offers elegance, and is nicely complemented with an open chicken wire-like shade. The burlap trim enhances the industrial look of this lamp, which includes a decorative Edison bulb.

This lamp is truly a work of art, and will stand on its own as a decorative home accent when you’re not using it to light up a room.

The Rosemont Floor Lamp also has decorative properties with its slender frame and a one-of-a-kind bubble glass shade. That’s right, each shade is uniquely made for each lamp, and can be raised or lowered with the extended arm to direct light where you need it.

Sturbridge Lantern Lamp

Monday, August 15th, 2011

Lanterns have been around for almost as long as there has been fire. Lamps of all size, shape, color and form create the vast landscape that we can see at night. Drawing light from kerosene, whale blubber and a variety of oils and fats; nearly everything we as humans could set fire to, we attempted to generate light  from it. Our lighting sources evolved and lamps for indoor use were produced. The first renditions may not have amounted to anything we would consider bright, but a progression of better lighting was soon to come. Thankfully between  1878-1879, Thomas Edison created the long lasting filament bulb that we can recognize in our homes today.

In a lamp that Sturbridge has carried for quite some time, we’ve created the best of both worlds. A lower section lantern design for a colonial inspired feel. An electric candle stick light that glows though the seeded glass panes; we thought it best to keep a safe bulb below, instead of the fire hazard a standard candle may carry. Above is a traditional lampshade, covering an additional bulb that provides a second source of light while reading. The two together instill  a wonderful feeling of being by the seashore or perhaps memories as a child. It is a lamp that creates it’s own space. Coordinate our Lantern Lamp with nautical themed decor, place in your study or  let it stand tall on it’s own, on a hall side table – any way you choose, this lamp won’t leave you in the dark.

The Sturbridge Lantern Lamp also has a dial that allows you to control the top or the bottom portion, providing a partial or full lightscape. It will draw you in with warm light from the candle below and makes a great utility lamp with it’s room filling light above. With your choice of a brass, bronze, red or verdigris colored lamp base and three sizes to fit your table lighting needs, you really should consider where your Lantern Lamp will go. Get one for yourself or as a great gift, while on sale for a limited time during our Annual Lighting Sale going on  right now.
