History of Table Lamps

Table lamps, the faithful companions found gracing desks, nightstands, and side tables across our society today, have an astonishingly long and fascinating history.

Early Days of Candle Sticks and Oil Lamps

The origin of table lamps is traced as far back as ancient civilizations like Mesopotamia and Egypt, where people lit homes and temples with primitive oil lamps made of clay or metal vessels used to burn oleum or plant oil, which led to flicker of the light that resembled candleholder.

A flaming candle was a discovery that marked an improvement in the life of the middle-aged. Standing metal and ceramic decorative candlesticks (safety, cleanliness, visibility) became table decorations; yet if fire broke they needed regular attention to avoid fire risks.

Electric Lighting Has Come of Age – New Era of Lighting

Thomas Edison revolutionized 19th-century light with his 1879 invention of electric light bulbs; later this led to table lamps equipped with LEDs offering safer and cleaner illumination solutions than those provided previously.

Early electric table lamps typically featured simple metal bases topped by fabric or glass shades; as technology advanced and decorative styles evolved, table lamps became ever more intricate – Art Deco lamps of the 1920s-30s featured geometric forms in bold colors; while midcentury Modern lamps from 1950s-60s featured clean lines with minimalist aesthetics.
