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. A wide range of antique and vintage lighting can be found on 1stDibs.

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 — there are Art Deco table lamps created in a universally appreciated style, the Tripod floor lamp by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Greta Magnusson Grossman's sleek and minimalist Grasshopper lamps and, of course, the wealth of mid-century 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 for sale on 1stDibs.

Questions About Set Of Lampshades
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 14, 2024
    There are actually two main rules for lampshades. First, the diameter of the shade's top should be as wide as the base of your lamp but no larger than twice its width. For example, if your lamp base measures 8 inches in diameter, its shade should measure 8 to 16 inches across the top. The second rule is that the height of the shade should be two-thirds of the overall height of the base or smaller. If your lamp is 18 inches tall, you would want a shade that is no more than 12 inches high. On 1stDibs, shop a diverse assortment of lamps.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    Yes, a glass lampshade can be painted. It’s best to use a paint that’s designed to be applied to glass and to use the instructions that are provided with that paint to get the best results. Shop a range of antique and modern glass lampshades on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 16, 2024
    The main parts of a lampshade are the frame, the lining, the outer, the finial and the fitter. Usually made out of metal, the frame is the inner structure of the lampshade that defines its shape. The lining is an inner layer of fabric that helps to diffuse and filter light, while the outer is the fabric or other material on the outside that you can see. Located at the top, the finial is the decorative piece that extends above the shade and remains visible once the accessory is in position. The fitter is the metal piece that attaches to the bulb or lamp to hold the shade in place. Shop a wide variety of lampshades on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
