More Light

Brass Two-Armed Candlestick Form Library Table Lamp with Rectangular Shade (LEO Design)

Autumn is here.  As the days grow shorter—and the nights longer—we lose more and more natural daylight.  We spend more time indoors, especially in the evenings, and need (or crave!) more light.  It's no surprise, then, that we see a seasonal spike in lamp-purchasing during the Fall and Early Winter months.

Although we have sold hundreds of antique lamps over the years, I have also carried this line of hand-made contemporary brass lighting (from New England) since our first year in 1995.  This Library Table Lamp is one of our recent additions to the selection.  It has a handsome, traditional style and would look equally handsome on a desk, on end tables, or even on a mantelpiece.  It holds two 60 watt bulbs (or the brighter LED equivalent) and has a dimmer switch in its rectangular brass base.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
