- Green Enamel Industrial Farm Pendant Lamp Pair - $175
- East Dallas, TX
From Lise Vintage in Dallas, these bright and poppy vintage fixtures would be great on either side of a bed, front door or even by a bathroom mirror. SHIPS! "Salvaged in deep East Texas, these farm ceiling fixtures will provide a tractor green pop of industrial style wherever you choose to use them. Complete the look with a retro Edison bulb!Love the shades but need something different? Custom options available. Let’s talk!"
- Pair of White Modern Lamps - $50 or best offer
- Echo Park, LA
From coquettish Graxeda in LA, I love the bedroom style and the lamps. I'd take everything, but will settle for the lamps at a great price. These don't ship, so you have to be in LA:
"2 classic white table lamps with grey lamp shades. Work great for bedside table lamps or living room lighting options. 1 y/o and in perfect condition!"
- Awesome UFO Lamp by NOVA - $225
- Pasedena, CA
From Arroyo Artifacts, a full fledged shop started by friends, this unique find is all you need to finish off your home office and it SHIPS!:
"Super cool desk lamp. Brass and painted enamel finish. Has a great UFO look. Pierced metal lower shade provides a nice diffuse light. In good vintage condition. Stands aprox 15″ tall"
- Currey & Co Silver & Lucite Chandelier - $350
- Boca Raton, FL
From 77Saphire in Florida, while the pic isn't the BEST, the chandelier is amazing and I thought it would be a hit with many of our readers. There are more pics so you can get close, but the glamour and elegance of this would allow it to fit into many rooms. It SHIPS! "Curry & Co Designer 6-light chandelier made from silver and Lucite with white silk shades. Nice sturdy chain comes in two lengths: short and long. In great condition — only slightly used."
- Hollywood Regency MCM Table Lamps Teal Glaze PAIR - $75
- New York, NY
From Chip Cordelli, a prop stylist in NYC, here are two stunning, robin's egg blue lamps that are being sold as a pair at a remarkable price: "Pair (2) stylish & dignified vintage 1950s porcelain lamps with matte teal glaze & lovely texture. Perfect for bedside lamps or for a living room. The color of the glaze is chic and modern, and the brass base accent gives it that uptown stateliness. Both are in good to very good condition—no cracks or chips, just minor surface wear. The bases have some brass rusting areas, but overall if cleaned up they could be in perfect condition. One needs to be rewired—the cord was cut. It would be easy to rewire these lamps, it’s a Youtube “How to rewire a lamp” video away."
- Large Midcentury Chrome Arc Floor Lamp - $200
- Chicago, ILL
From a pro seller, True Vintage, in Chicago, this arc lamp has a great shiny aged presence and stands out from any of the typical new arc lamps I've ever seen. At a great price and you can get it SHIPPED. "This would definitely be the statement piece in anyone’s living room. Midcentury arc floor lamp in a chrome finish. The arc neck of the lamp has a springiness to it and can be rotated without having to move the incredibly heavy base. This lamp disassembles at the neck for easy moving and can take up to a 200W bulb."
- Midcentury Industrial Swing Arm Desk Lamp 1940s - $160
- New York, NY
Also from Chip, this is another amazing find that I've never seen before. It SHIPS!: "Handsome metal 1940s midcentury industrial architect / Illustrator desk lamp with fabric covered spring cord. It’s just perfect. The style is classic old school industrial, and while there are no marks for maker on it, it’s as high end as they get from the period. It’s in overall very good to excellent condition, used for many years by an illustration artist in a mid century house out in Wilton, CT. The cord has some dirt and dust from being exposed for many years, but that should hardly be a stumbling block to finding this baby a must-have keeper. It works just fine. Ready to go. It takes both an incandescent and a fluorescent halo bulb, both not included."
