Yearning For Urn Lamps

October 5, 2016

By Tab Byrum


One of my favorite shapes for lamps is the classic urn shape. Based on the ancient urn that was used to store everything, especially oil and spices, the shape is very basic and has curves in all the right places. I’m always on the lookout for an antique pair of marble urn lamps, I’ll just find them someday, I know I will. If you can’t find an urn lamp already made it is possible to have them made once you find an urn you like, they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, I’ve even some recently made from concrete garden urns. Today I’m going to share some images of great Urn Lamps as well as some that are up for sale on One Kings Lane. Enjoy!!! (above image via)


You can accomplish so much with lamps like these with the shade, here you have a more contemporary shorter drum shade. If you put a taller shade on here the lamps would have a more traditional feel.  ( via)


I LOVE this classic look of the white marble Urn Lamp with a black silk shade, you can definitely make it more casual with a round shade or one made of a different fabric, say burlap. (via)


This pair is another great look in brown, again the classic shape and these have an antique feel to them because of the color and finish. (via)


If you find this let me know, I want it!!! (via)

Urn Lamps From One Kings Lane



This Mini Alabaster Urn Lamp only stands 21 inches high, but the greatest thing may be its optical illusion effect. As you look at it do you see one urn or two profiles looking at each other?


This is a beautiful antique example of a White Marble Urn Lamp, I love the gray veining that runs through the marble. 


This tall Blue & White Urn Lamp is the perfect addition to any traditional decor. This would be beautiful in a room of reds and yellows with blue accents. 


The Leighton Table Lamp is a classic Urn shape but in more contemporary materials such as hand cut glass and silver plated metal. 


If your style is more Old World than the Tuscan Urn Table Lamp may be more your style with its gold and brown finishes. 

All words are my own.
