Lamp Designed By For Sale on 1stDibs

Find many varieties of an authentic lamp designed by available at 1stDibs. Frequently made of metal, glass and brass, every lamp designed by was constructed with great care. Find 597 options for an antique or vintage lamp designed by now, or shop our selection of 541 modern versions for a more contemporary example of this long-cherished piece. There are many kinds of the lamp designed by you’re looking for, from those produced as long ago as the 18th Century to those made as recently as the 21st Century. A lamp designed by, designed in the Mid-Century Modern, Modern or Scandinavian Modern style, is generally a popular piece of furniture. You’ll likely find more than one lamp designed by that is appealing in its simplicity, but Pablo Designs, Leucos Design Lab and Bentu Design produced versions that are worth a look.

How Much are Lamp Designed By?

Prices for a lamp designed by can differ depending upon size, time period and other attributes — at 1stDibs, they begin at $119 and can go as high as $97,923, while the average can fetch as much as $1,504.

Finding the Right Lighting for You

The right table lamp, outwardly sculptural chandelier or understated wall pendant can work wonders for your home. While we’re indebted to thinkers like Thomas Edison for critically important advancements in lighting and electricity, we’re still finding new ways to customize illumination to fit our personal spaces all these years later. 

Today, lighting designers like the self-taught Bec Brittain have used the flexible structure of LEDs to craft glamorous solutions by working with what is typically considered a harsh lighting source. By integrating glass and mirrors, reflection can be used to soften the glow from LEDs and warmly welcome light into any space.

Although contemporary innovators continue to impress, some of the classics can’t be beat. 

Just as gazing at the stars allows you to glimpse the universe’s past, vintage chandeliers like those designed by Gino Sarfatti and J. & L. Lobmeyr, for example, put on a similarly stunning show, each with a rich story to tell. As dazzling as it is, the Arco lamp, on the other hand, prioritizes functionality — it’s wholly mobile, no drilling required. Designed in 1962 by architect-product designers Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, the piece takes the traditional form of a streetlamp and creates an elegant, arching floor fixture for at-home use. There is no shortage of modernist lighting similarly prized by collectors and casual enthusiasts alike — the Tripod floor lamp by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Greta Magnusson-Grossman's sleek and minimalist Grasshopper lamps and, of course, the wealth of postwar experimental lighting that emerged from Italian artisans at Arredoluce, FLOS and many more are hallmarks in illumination innovation. 

With decades of design evolution behind it, home lighting is no longer just practical. Crystalline shaping by designers like Gabriel Scott turns every lighting apparatus into a luxury accessory. A new installation doesn’t merely showcase a space; carefully chosen ceiling lights, table lamps and floor lamps can create a mood, spotlight a favorite piece or highlight your unique personality. The sparkle that your space has been missing is waiting for you amid the growing collection of antique, vintage and contemporary lighting on 1stDibs.
