Contemporary lamps


 
Pair gilt bronze bouillotte candle lamps
We found an antique pair of gilt bronze candle sticks.
Lovely as is, but maybe even more useful when mounted as lamps...so we did.
We created a base + figurine arm to hold lamp sockets and the shade.
We did not attache the candle sticks to the base. ( at least not yet) 

As bouillotte lamps they will show real candles while light will come from inside the shade. A magical effect.
You could opt to purchase the lamps NOT WIRED, so you can use them as original bouillotte lamps, working on only candles. ( very romantic on the dining table) 
We can also provide faux wooden candles.

We took pics with an oval TOLE shade ( from our own collection) You can order the tole shade in any colour from the F&B swatch card.
Also a picture with a black oval hard back shade. 
Or you can choose any colour hard back shade. ( or source your own) 

lamp + shade 47cm high.
Shade 35cm wide, 20cm deep

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.
