Futuristic Art Deco Table Lamps

Mallet never fails to impress – these spectacular table lamps are absolute showstoppers.  These lamps are quite sleek with such a vertical profile and I especially like the angular, electricity iconography in the tube frame.  It’s almost like three bolts are leaping from the base to the lightening rod finial.  Unfortunately, like all wonderful things from this dealer, they require some deep pockets.  Prepare to commit.

Available at the incomparable Mallet in London.

Pair of French Table Lamps by Maison Jansen

French Table Lamps Maison Jarden

Few design houses can compete with the reputation of the legendary Maison Jansen.  For the century they were in business, this firm set the look for royal palaces and government residences, most notably the White House during the JFK administration.  Even more incredible is that they had a global business at the turn of the 20th century, with projects across Europe, the Middle East, South America, and elsewhere, way before international travel was the common practice we think of today.  What it must have been like to work for such a company! Available through Caira Mandaglio in London.
