Lamps & Lights

Lamps and lighting have come a long way from when man first created fire in their primitive cave dwellings. From authentic Tiffany lamps, to antique chandeliers, to mid-century modern Marbro lamps, lighting has gone from merely illuminating our homes to adding style to our spaces.

Lamps first appeared as rudimentary containers using natural materials soaked in animal fat as the fuel. Although the basic principle has remained the same, lamps have undergone substantial design changes. Today, antique chandeliers, lamps, sconces, and candelabras are available in a variety of styles for collectors looking to add interest to their homes.

The evolution of lamps is fascinating, from the first kerosene and oil lamps introduced in Persia in 900 BC, to the refinement of gas lighting in Europe in the 17th century, to the electrical lighting innovations of the 19th and 20th centuries which led to more compact, safe, and energy-efficient bulbs. Around that same time, lamps were becoming statement pieces in the home with leaded-glass shades, crystal chandeliers, and ornately-carved sconces. Tiffany lamps, created by the famed New York design studio starting around 1895, are some of the most coveted lamps available today.
