When you think about it, lamps are very simple if you strip them down to the basics. It’s quite interesting how we managed to turn that simple mechanism into a wonderful accent piece that’s both functional and beautiful. The basic mechanism is pretty much the same for every lamp and yet they are all so different. Some are unique and stand out with their designs and this makes them special. Here are some great examples.
In the case of a lamp, it’s difficult to decide whether the lampshade or the base is more important. If it’s not one it’s the other. Today we’re going to take a look at some very interesting lamp base designs. You can easily spruce up a lamp by coming up with a creative idea for a base. You can use all sorts of things. For example, you could use a stack of books to make a very interesting lamp base.
When you have imagination and creativity, you can use pretty much anything to create something unique. You can see in one of the pictures that a lamp has a base made from cups and plates. That’s definitely something you don’t see every day. One amp has a base made of pipes and that’s also very interesting. Other have a more sculptural and artistic look. But whether it’s handcrafted, a DIY piece or something made by a famous designer, the purpose is the same: to impress.
