Buying Guide

Do you have a penchant for collecting vintage and antique items for your home interiors? There’s something about using lighting, like a Victorian hurricane lamp, for example, to create a romantic ambiance in bedrooms, dens, or the corner of living rooms. Because there is such a wide variety to choose from, we’ve put together this guide to discuss the features, options, and designs.

One of the best things about these lamps is there is no shortage of styles and colors from which to choose. In addition to finding a broad range of colors, you’ll also find a plethora of gorgeous materials. The shades feature beautiful flower designs against white frosted or other colored glass. The Victorian style of the base is where things become elaborate. You’ll find intricate details including ornate metal bases, fixtures, and switches.

Making decisions regarding your selections depends on:

  • Color: are you looking for soft pastels, dark shades, or a combination of the two? The painted glass shades feature many different color combinations. You can make your selections based on your taste, the style of the room, or a combination of the two.
  • Size: Victorian hurricane lamps are available in a broad range of sizes. You’ll find them in styles ranging from small nightlights to tall table lamps.
  • Style: some of these hurricane lamps are more detailed than others. Depending on how elaborate of a style you’re looking for, you can find them featuring intricate paintings or with shades featuring a clean white appearance.

It isn’t uncommon for those looking at vintage and antique pieces to wonder if they should focus only on this style throughout the room. It’s acceptable to work with vintage and antique items alongside other themes to create eclectic designs. You’ll find this is a pleasing combination if you’re worried about the room appearing too cluttered.

Featuring these lamps in interiors isn’t as limiting as many may believe. While it may seem like they can only have placement in traditional or Mid-Century modern designs, this doesn’t have to be the case. For example, lamps featuring dark colors will work well in transitionally styled rooms where there’s a combination of modern and traditional styles. Those with opaque lamp shades and bases featuring less metal will work in modern and contemporary rooms. The main reason is that they have clean lines, curving silhouettes, and understated details.

Because you’re purchasing a Victorian lamp made mostly of glass, it’s going to take care and consideration to keep it from breaking. You’ll need to dust it regularly because, as the shade and body of the lamp heats, it will attract particles and cause them to stick. If dust and grime stick, use a cloth that’s been dipped in a mild detergent to clean the lamp off gently. Avoid using a spray cleaner or commercial cleaners because they’ll cause damage to the paint.
