I gotta be honest - when I think of lamps, I don’t automatically think of marble. In fact, when I saw a pair of carrara cylinder table lamps at a favorite vintage shop in Greenport, it struck me how interesting they were. They felt different: Architectural, HEAVY, and a material that I align more with the built environment than tabletop decoration.
I think the cool factor about these lamps is the unexpected malleability of such a rigid material. Ceramic, plastic, glass, even wood…these are all easy enough to manipulate into different shapes. But stone seems more…challenging. Taking something that took thousands of years to make and determining its next life in the form of a lamp? Well, why didn’t I think of that?!
