What makes a sculptural table lamp?
If we think of the word sculptural we tend to think of carved figures, works of art and abstract decorations in ceramics, stone and other materials. In terms of Indoor sculptural table lamps the same principles can apply, however with the practicalities of modern living spaces sculptural lighting can be thought of in terms of volume, form and profile but also materials with a certain feel and a tactile nature. A sculptural lamp can be of simple design but may have a profile that stands both in use and unlit, It can be a lamp that has a great volume, that becomes a centrepiece for a space or it can have a sculptural feel from the material used in its construction. Of course, some sculptural table lamps can be a combination of all these aspects, the most important thing of all is that the user loves the lamp!
In the United Kingdom, many companies exist, that have decades of experience producing quality indoor decorative lighting.In this post, I will show you some of my favourite & unique quality sculptural lamps from one of these companies called Graham & Green.
