The right lighting should do a lot more than merely illuminate a room. It can express your personal style, set a mood and provide a brilliant focal point.
In that light, our new lamp collection is filled with bright ideas for every room in your home. In creating each piece, we were inspired not just by original antique designs, but by our love of juxtaposing unexpected materials and repurposing architectural elements to create something surprising and entirely new.
Beside a bed, perched atop a desk or on a side table
nestled by your favorite armchair, you can never have too many table lamps. Our Retreat collection is light-years beyond basic, inspired by architectural elements, curiosities and vintage finds our merchants have come across on their travels throughout France and other far-flung places around the globe. Here are some of our favorites:
A shapely ceramic base with raised bellissima ornamentation gives our Duchess Table Lamp its artistic appeal; an olive glaze allows the terracotta undertones to show through. Evoking the beauty of vintage tin ceiling panels, our Hudson Lamp’s hand-painted, embossed metal base is topped with a painted linen shade embellished with lovely damask stencils. Paired together, this striking piece bears the timeworn appearance of an antique artifact. Borrowing its curvaceous shape from an antique finial bedpost, the Kendall Table Lamp illuminates any room with dramatic, architectural presence. Lovely in pairs beside a bed, the Eclat Table Lamp boasts an intricately carved wood base that’s finished with layers of distressed paint for the look of a centuries old relic; a rectangular textured fabric shade adds contemporary counterpoint. Part art piece and part functional illumination, the stately Elysee Lamp is crafted by skilled artisans, with a hand-carved mahogany urn base that’s been hand-painted and rubbed away for a rich patina; the hand-painted linen shade showcases hand-painted swags that recall the beauty of antique French painted valences. Its substantial scale makes this a stunning piece for wide-open living spaces.
A gorgeous wall sconce can amp up the drama of a space. We love them in pairs flanking a console in an entryway, a dining room sideboard or a bed. With its rusted iron acanthus leaves, intricately carved wood base
and hand-distressed whitewash finish, the Amelia Wall Sconce takes on the appearance of a treasured heirloom.
Originally designed to illuminate a buffet or sideboard, buffet lamps can venture well beyond the dining room. Characterized by their tall, slim bases and petite shades, they’re perfectly proportioned to illuminate smaller spaces, like a console or mantel and look wonderful in pairs. Our Nantucket Twist Buffet Lamp incorporates an unexpected mix of textures—from the woven rattan shade to the carved barley twist stem and fluted base. With its warm honey finish, it lends casual, airy presence to any space.
Remember, your home is your canvas, so surround yourself with pieces you love. Artful accents that you use and enjoy every day will bring your home beautifully to life.
