Walnut and Birch Bedside Table Lamp by Mel Smilow

$950per item

About

The bedside table lamp is part of the re-issued Smilow Lighting collection, originally designed by Mel Smilow in 1956 and officially reintroduced by his daughter Judy Smilow in 2017. This collection’s sculptural and nature-inspired pieces bring a softness and brightness to a room while complementing our entire furniture collection. With a small circular walnut base and hand-crafted birch dowel-lined shade, the lamp brings warmth to any room. A perfect lamp for reading, this beautiful light is welcome in any room. Made in America since 1949, Smilow Furniture and Lighting defines: Enduring Modern Classics. Judy Smilow (1958-2018), designer and founder of Smilow Design LLC, grew up “modern” in a Frank Lloyd Wright cooperative Community surrounded by her father’s artwork and furniture. Through the glass walls of her family home, she looked upon wooded surroundings and integrated architecture that would define her own design aesthetic: Natural, simple, and modern. Her father, Mel Smilow (1922-2002) designed and retailed modern furnishings through his six independently owned stores from 1949 through the late 1970s. A champion of affordable, finely crafted, modern design, his work has been recognized and coveted by collectors and well appreciated by his loyal customers for over 50 years. Now, with the reintroduction of this authentic midcentury brand, handcrafted in America since 1949, the designs and manufacture prove to have truly stood the test of time. Still handcrafted in America, our products fit what Mel used to say about his furniture: Enduring Modern Classic. It is with great privilege and pride that Judy’s Husband Steven Schoenfelder and children Maia and Aaron Schoenfelder continuing on as a family-owned business, producing beautiful, enduring, modern design for a new generation of customers.
