Warm Vintage Marble Lamp

Warm Vintage Marble Lamp

In good vintage condition, this lamp is from the 1970s. Some of the stem is covered by a larger fabric lampshade with wave-style detailing around the edges. There is a larger square base underneath the stem to showcase the marble design.

Designer Advice:

The warm color scheme of this lamp means it will match more colors and patterns in comparison to traditional lighter marble. We love the retro vibe it has, especially the funky orange-brown marble swirl. We think it would suit a living room with a brown color scheme – small details in orange or mustard would also really make this lamp pop.

Tall Marble Lamp Vintage

Winston Porter

LED compatible, this buffet table lamp is made from metal with a fabric shade. The two marble slate accents on the stem are designed in a range of neutral colors, meaning each lamp will be unique. It has a rotary switch.

$151.99 $227.5

Designer Advice:

The simple black of the stem contrasts nicely with the white fabric shade and will match with most décor schemes. However, we think this lamp would look best in a living room or entryway that has lighter walls and darker furniture. Dark brown or black furniture will match the stem, whereas cream or white walls will accentuate the marble detailing.

Jade Marble Lamp Base Vintage

Alcott Hill®

With a maximum wattage of 60W, this marble lamp is handcrafted in Spain, meaning each one is unique. Featuring a silk shade and a rocker switch, it has a jade green base with gorgeous marble veining.

Designer Advice:

We think the jade green base of this lamp is stunning. Rather than in a living room, we recommend this lamp for a bedroom, where its soft jewel-toned colors will look lovely. Place on a bedside table and pair with bedding in calm, neutral shades like white or cream and minimal patterns to let your lamp shine bright.

Cone Vintage Marble Lamp

Cone Vintage Marble Lamp

Vintage from the 1970s, this lamp was made in The Netherlands. It features a small cone-shaped bulb balancing on a bronze base for a charming antique look. Delicate and chic, this lamp also features opaline glass detailing.

Designer Advice:

The beautiful contrast between the bronze base and cone-shaped bulb is what makes this lamp stand out. A great option to use as a bedside table lamp due to its soft and ambient lighting, it will help you drift off to sleep or relax when reading. It does not come with a light bulb included and has a European-style plug.

Buying Guide

When shopping around for accessories for your home, you may come across antique marble lamps. These are unlikely to be found in many homeware stores, since the majority of antiques are only available online or at specific auctions. If you've decided that the antique marble lamp look is what you want for your home, here are things you should consider beforehand.

The best place to start your search for these lamps is at auctions. Search online to find antique auctions in your area. Marble lamps have been very popular down the ages, so you're bound to see a few of them when you go to auction. You don't have to attend all of the auctions in person either, as many of them have online features which allow you to browse what's available and place your bids.

In addition to auctions, many websites have unique marble lamps which are old and antique. You should always look at the delivery options and check that delivery is available to your location.

Most antique marble lamps are around 2 feet tall, although you may come across floor lamps which are roughly 5 feet in height. There are many marble lamps ranging between those sizes too, but which ones you come across is often down to a matter of luck. Since the items can be few and far between, you might not have a huge amount of choice when it comes to the size of your lamp.

One of the factors which you should take into consideration is whether you want one or two lamps. If you want two lamps, you should aim to buy two smaller lamps, as larger lamps can soon start to look overpowering if there is more than one. For a pair of lamps, the average height is 24-30 inches per lamp.

There are rounded lamps, square lamps, tall lamps, shaped lamps, and many other designs. The rounded style is perhaps the most popular, and can be in the shape of a sphere or a rounded oval. Long tube-shaped marble lamps are also a common type to see, while the even rarer versions are flat and square or shaped like leaves or even human faces.

In order to keep your new lamp in great condition, dust the marble regularly with a clean damp cloth. Ensure the cloth is soft and non-abrasive so as not to cause any damage to the lamp. In the unlikely event that anything spills on your lamp or there are any marks, remove the spillage immediately with a damp, soft and clean cloth or sponge. Following these steps will make your antique lamp a great investment for your home.
