A Time for Light - I


Brass Heavy Columnar Lamp with Black Parchment Shade (LEO Design)


Though the days gradually are getting longer, this time of year is still a season of darkness. People want more light!  The holidays—Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years—all do their best to brighten-up this darkest time of the year, often by adding cheerful light.  It's also a time of year when merchants see an uptick in their sales of lamps and other lighting.

The heavy, columnar brass lamp, shown above, will certainly contribute a healthy measure of "clubby gravitas" to any home, office or business.  In fact, one theatrically-gifted Anglophile fashion designer's decorator bought a dozen of them from me for the company's (then new) supper club in London.  They were placed atop banquet seat dividers and looked wonderful (they sent me a photo).  I have had one in my home for 25 years and still love its warmth, strength and substance.

This lamp, made in New England, is one of a handful offered in my on-line store.  Click on the photo above to learn more about this lamp.  Click here to see the full range of LEO Design's lamps in-stock.
