This chic lamp pair with their original harps and finials are fabulous and insanely glamorous. I love their bold modernist, sculptural design. They would easily blend with most decors due to their simple, organic lines. (Excuse my reflection in some of the images-they are tough to photograph-even more gorgeous in person) These are classic designs you will have forever.
They are very dramatic due to their size so they would look perfect on larger bedside/end tables as well as in an entryway on a large console. The shades are not included but simply used to show what they would look like with shades (Think they should have larger shades anyway).
Modernism in design and architecture emerged in the aftermath of the First World War and the Russian Revolution – a period when the artistic avant-garde dreamed of a new world free of conflict, greed and social inequality. It was not a style but a loose collection of ideas. Many different styles can be characterised as Modernist, but they shared certain underlying principles: a rejection of history and applied ornament; a preference for abstraction; and a belief that design and technology could transform society.
A showstopping pair of lamps.
