Description
Perhaps more than any other decorative fixture, electric lighting lends itself to sculptural expression, both in the physical form of the lamp and in the light it throws. As this gorgeously illustrated catalog shows, table lamps, floor lamps, and mounted lighting fixtures have reflected and also influenced the fashion trends of their times since the invention of the light bulb. Here are stained glass Tiffany lamps and tendrilled art nouveau creations that seem like living things; Frank Lloyd Wright–designed lights for individual houses and Luxo swing-arm task lights; Eileen Gray's stunning rocket-shaped floor lights from 1923 and Lightolier's ubiquitous three-way pole lights of the 1950s.
