The Natural Beauty of Rustic Wood.

Wooden table lamps have a timeless appeal, wooden lamp bases have been made since the dawn of electric lighting. Wood can not only be beautiful to look at and admire but can also provide a tactile surface and can bring a touch of nature to your home or living space. A rustic wooden table lamp is a great choice for those people who want that natural element in a lighting scheme, generally a rustic lamp will not have a fine finish, there will be no attempt made to cover up natural features of the wood such as knots, fissures and graining, rustic lamps will often be unique items due to the natural and unregulated material that is wood, you may buy two lamps from the same shop or supplier and find that the lamps have very different grain patterns and touches of colour due to the natural make up of wood. Many manufacturers of rustic wooden table lamps will apply final finishes that highlight the features and colours found in the material they use. Some rustic lamps will have an applied finish over the wooden base, these finishes are often distressed and roughly applied to allow the natural wooden material to peek through. Rustic wooden lamps are highly versatile and with a little thought can fit into a wide range of interior ideas from ethnic, nautical, shabby chic and even in modern contemporary settings.

  1. These are absolutely beautiful wooden table lamps that is  actually made of wood.  Some of them are obvious that they are made out of wood. Some of them look like they are made out of metal or even plastic type, but it is interesting to know that is made out of wood and out of french wood. Are these wooden lamps one of a kind or are they mass products? It’s interesting to know.

    1. Hi Brittany. These lamps are mass produced, however due to the natural material that is wood and the combination of hand applied finishes you will find that each lamp can differ slightly allowing a slightly unique feel to the wonderful & natural material that is wood.

      Kind Regards

  3. Awesome! I love rustic decorations, they are one of my favorites. My boyfriend and I are looking to build a rustic house so these lamps could fit perfectly in our house.

    My favorite in the ones you presented is the first one. I love it’s unique style and look.

    I think the rustic style will never go old, it’s always a style that I find beautiful inside houses. That’s my opinion but I really like it. It makes different than all the modern look we have nowadays.

    I will take a deeper look to the models you shared here. Thanks a lot! 🙃


    1. Hi Audrey, you are correct about the rustic style, it has always been available in various forms of homeware but has had a strong comeback over the last few years, almost as a counter movment to the clean and minimalist look.
