Contemporary lamps


 
Traditional, contemporary or eclectic. Our lamps are always timeless and elegant. Custom is what we do, with attention to detail and customer specification.
Changes in size, finish, details, lamp holders, cords or finals. We also welcome your own design ideas.
Skilled craftsmen create the finest lamp shades available, be it silk hardback or silk hand sewn pleated lamp shades.
Truly unique are our custom tole/metal or brass lamp shades, which can be ordered in any style, size and finish.
Vintage and antique lamps have their own place in the website. Here you will find unique and  one-off pieces. Sometimes singles, sometimes pairs or multiples.

Well-made design that meets your wishes, your home, your taste

Okay, tell us, what do you think contemporary lamps look like? What are you looking for? At Empel Collections, we have a wide and varied selection of ceiling lights, wall lights, floor lamps, and table lamps on our website. But we keep telling our (potential) customers over and over: what you see is not what you have to get. Almost every design can be customized. Different height, colour, finish, cord, finial—you say the word. You could even ask us to design something especially for you. In fact, please, please, please do… it’s what we love most of all… A considered and well-made design that meets your wishes, your home, your taste: that is what we call a contemporary lamp.
 

High taste, high spec

We love the artisan aspect of making beautiful lighting just as much as we do the design process. There are so many wonderful materials to work with: gorgeous minerals, beautiful metals, glorious woods, glittering gold-leaf, warm silver-leaf, a truly endless array of paints and pigments… Believe us when we say our workshop, to us, looks like a sweetshop. And we treat those materials with the respect they deserve, turning them into wonderful lamps that combine high taste design with a high spec finish.
 

At your service 

So, feel free to stroll around on our website. Let your eyes wander along the dozens and dozens of pictures. Make a note of what you like. It can be a lamp ‘as is’ or just a detail that strikes you. Let our designs inspire you, like we get inspired by vintage pieces or an old interior design photograph. Picture where precisely you would want your lamp—or lamps—to feature, take some measurements and maybe even take some pictures of that particular spot, so that you can email them to us. And then, contact us, by phone or email. Tell us what you are looking for and how we can help you. Don’t worry if you don’t know exactly what you are looking for. We have enough imagination to go around and together we will surely succeed in the perfect design for a timeless and contemporary lamp.
