Alabaster Lamps

June 30, 2011

I have a thing for alabaster lamps. I adore them. The variation in color–the warmth and creaminess. I am always on the hunt for them when I am on my vintage buying excursions.

I have them re-wired, and like to team them up with a stunning lamp shade. This silk one is from Designers Guild.

Or not. I also think they are quite keen without a shade, and just use an Edison bulb. In this case, I found a cool chicken wire shade that allows the Edison bulb to be seen.

This Osborne & Little silk shade with a variety of dog silhouettes is just so darn whimsical.

My favorite shade maker/lamp repair gal Dawn from Lit is back from Paris for a bit, and is working on a lovely grouping of alabaster lamps that I have been saving for her to work on when she was next in Seattle. They are going to work perfectly in the expanded space at the Home store.

Send me an e-mail if any of the above lamps tickle your fancy and I can get you pricing and dimensions.
