Stiffel brass lamp
One of the most popular questions we hear about this company’s products is: ‘are stiffel lamps solid brass?’ And, while it’s not a given, they certainly can be.
In fact, we recommend looking for a Stiffel brass lamp if you’re hoping to introduce some color or mirror other elements in the same finish to ensure a cohesive feel.
Stiffel lamp with empire shade
When you think of Stiffel lamps, the chances are that you’re picturing a design with an empire shade. After all, they’re some of the most popular models, and definitely one you can’t go wrong with.

Antique Stiffel lamps with column style base
Even though this collection includes different Stiffel lamp shades, let’s be honest: it’s the base that will make them stand out in your room!
