Small 1950s ceramic lamp packs big atomic style! Organic, biomorphic structure, applied white texture. Rewired. Retro accent lamp, nursery lamp, kids’ lamp…
Small but unique ceramic lamp with loads of style, loads of decorating possibility! Reflecting Mid-Century America’s fascination with outer space and life on other planets, not to mention life FROM other planets, this great little lamp is both organic and other-worldly (think Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets Twilight Zone meets Little Shop of Horrors… ;~p ). Creamy lemon-yellow in color, it sports sculpted organic texture akin to bark as well as applied dimensional splatter texture in off-white.
This great little lamp absolutely qualifies as one of my 101s! I can think of at least that many ways it could be put to great use! Its retro lines, history and aesthetic make it perfect for adults. Opt for a black, brown shade to update it, vintage barkcloth or tiered shade to give it even more 1950s style! Its fun, simple design and bright color would allow it to function brilliantly in a child’s room or the nursery as well! Or, you could keep the white shade (shade included) with or without embellishment. So fun!!
*This little lamp comes with the white shade shown. Please contact me for details if you would like to sub the white shade out or another color (subject to availability), Options for additional custom trim and embellishment available as well (additional fee). Please inquire for details.

My Mid-Century Modern is looking for a new home, where it can let someone’s style shine.
Might it be yours..?
As always, thanks for looking!
