Steampunk or vintage industrial table lamp. A little of both but in this case a set of table lamps serve as the perfect night light when walking up a steep flight of stairs in the dark. If you ever get up in the middle of the night you know it’s hard to navigate a flight of stairs. Turning on a ceiling light is too harsh on the eyes that are just waking up so this vintage industrial table lamp serves as an effective and decorative night light for each potential missed step.
Vintage Industrial Table Lamp
Inspired by an offshoot of science fiction, steampunk design is sometimes fantasy that incorporates technology and the aesthetic designs of 19th century industrial steam powered machinery. Steampunk is based on futuristic inventions as people in the 19th century envisioned them. It includes fictional machines like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne. The term steampunk made it’s first appearance in 1987 but is also recognized in works of fiction as far back as the 1950’s. So if you were wondering what this has to do with a vintage industrial table lamp just take a closer look. The base of this lamp resembles a fantasy type of machinery that is very vintage industrial but doesn’t seem to serve any real purpose. And the whisk like top of this table lamp only adds to the fantasy and unique appeal of this industrial design. It may make look great on a table but this vintage industrial lamp works even better on the floor. Now be careful of that last step.
