Finding the Right Lighting for You

The right table lamp, outwardly sculptural chandelier or understated wall pendant can work wonders for your home. While we’re indebted to thinkers like Thomas Edison for critically important advancements in lighting and electricity, we’re still finding new ways to customize illumination to fit our personal spaces all these years later. 

Today, lighting designers like the self-taught Bec Brittain have used the flexible structure of LEDs to craft glamorous solutions by working with what is typically considered a harsh lighting source. By integrating glass and mirrors, reflection can be used to soften the glow from LEDs and warmly welcome light into any space.

Although contemporary innovators continue to impress, some of the classics can’t be beat. 

Just as gazing at the stars allows you to glimpse the universe’s past, vintage chandeliers like those designed by Gino Sarfatti and J. & L. Lobmeyr, for example, put on a similarly stunning show, each with a rich story to tell. As dazzling as it is, the Arco lamp, on the other hand, prioritizes functionality — it’s wholly mobile, no drilling required. Designed in 1962 by architect-product designers Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, the piece takes the traditional form of a streetlamp and creates an elegant, arching floor fixture for at-home use. There is no shortage of modernist lighting similarly prized by collectors and casual enthusiasts alike — the Tripod floor lamp by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Greta Magnusson-Grossman's sleek and minimalist Grasshopper lamps and, of course, the wealth of postwar experimental lighting that emerged from Italian artisans at Arredoluce, FLOS and many more are hallmarks in illumination innovation. 

With decades of design evolution behind it, home lighting is no longer just practical. Crystalline shaping by designers like Gabriel Scott turns every lighting apparatus into a luxury accessory. A new installation doesn’t merely showcase a space; carefully chosen ceiling lights, table lamps and floor lamps can create a mood, spotlight a favorite piece or highlight your unique personality.

The sparkle that your space has been missing is waiting for you amid the growing collection of antique, vintage and contemporary lighting on 1stDibs.

Questions About Lamp Shades
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Mica is a natural mineral that is mined from the earth and then formed into sheets. These sheets can then be handcrafted into lamp shades, which when illuminated, emit a warm earthy glow. Shop a collection of mica lamps from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    The color of your lampshade is totally up to you. The more sheer the lampshade, the brighter the light will be.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 19, 2021
    A softback lampshade is made by gathering or stretching the outer fabric over a metal frame. This fabric is then cut off, stitched, and finished at the top and bottom of the frame. These shades are often created with a process that involves tucks, pleats, gathers, or smoking. On 1stDibs, find a variety of antique and vintage softback lamps.
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 12, 2021
    The lampshade that gives the most light is said to be bell shades. However, the luminance from a lampshade also depends on the room size, shape and purpose of the shade. Traditionally, white shades light up the entire room, whereas dark ones are used for making a vivid picture and are also preferred. On 1stDibs, find a collection of antique and vintage lampshades.
