Alabaster Lamp Love

Smooth, light, luminous, shapely…what’s not to love about the alabaster lamp. And they seem to be very much at home in a variety of milieu. Here are just a few that I’ve been eyeing lately.

Simply gorgeous with all the lovely veining. I can see these lovelies in so many settings.

And this one with a more modern edge. It reminds me of the incomplete Michelangelo sculptures I saw long ago at the Galleria dellAccademia with soft, smooth limbs emerging from a rough hunk of marble. Stunning.

And this vignette by Nate Berkus in a serene neutral arrangement. Lovely.

While perfect in a light, neutral room, they are equally at home in a dark, moodier setting. The contrast shows off their lovely curves.

Soft. Luminous. Simple. Just right.

Stacks and stacks of white with a little alabaster tucked in for good measure? Makes me weak in the knees.

Do you have a little alabaster in your life?
