IMG_7829Customers are so amazed at the large selection of mid century modern lighting fixtures that we carry within our store.  We are always out looking for floor lamps, table lamps, swag and wall lamps that are unique and original to the time period.   Condition is just one of the priorities that we use in helping us make our selection for the items that we feature here.  We also want original fiberglass shades and ceramic bases that were definitely found in homes of that era.    Timeless has three pairs of matching lamps with matching fiberglass shades.  We have really been  on the hunt for  really cool deco floor lamps.  At this time, we have three unusual styles.  One is ceramic with black, white, and gold bases on the top and the bottom  with the turn on/off switch connected on the lamp post.   By turning the switch on theIMG_7817 lamp post the lamp lights up.   It has the original fiberglass double tier shade.  Another of the floor lamp is oriental in style with a fiberglass brim shade with oriental style design that tilts and the fiberglass base that the electric socket is attached in and lights up like a torch lamp.   Lastly, we have a very deco tri pod black and brass floor lamp with the original two tier fiberglass shade.  IMG_8545IMG_8546Many of the single lamps are in  popular colors of that time frame such as; pink, turquoise, black, green, gold-yellow,  teal.  These lamps would look lovely in any room of your house.  Most are pottery bases with very art deco or atomic looks. IMG_7828  IMG_0120We have Blenko glass lamp bases with the fiberglass shades.

We have three pairs of table lamps with matching shades.  One pair has the same turn switch style on the lamp base that is black and you turn the switch that is mounted between the top ceramic base and the bottom   base and the lamps turn off and on.   The fiberglass shade have gold floral medallions attached to the shade to give it a texture design. IMG_8524    All original in excellent condition and working.  With all the choices that our buyers will have, they are going to have a great time choosing and decorating that special area in their mid century home with just the look that they have been hunting for.
