1950’s abstract red Asian lamp

Continuing last week’s trend of “really cool stuff, not limited to clothing”, we had to share this stunning example of mid-century lamp design.  It has all the hallmarks, yet it’s not like every other 50’s lamp you see.  Look at the diagonals in the shade and the base.  Look at the nice shade of deep, cool red.   Look at the abstract pattern in black and white – not as frivolous as some of the fleck and swirl detail on furniture and dishware from the same time.  The biggest bonus with red lamps, in the humble opinion of this blogger, is that they look great off *and* on.   Click here for other views and size specifications!
