We have been the proud owners of a few Robert Sonneman lamps. Sonneman lamps have that retro futuristic vibe we are just in love with. This Post Modern Robert Sonneman lamp was designed for Koch & Lowy and most likely dates from the 1980s. The tall 76-inch floor lamp has four long aluminum tubular poles that flower upward to cradle a bowl-shaped torchiere shade. The lamp is bolted to a heavy cast iron base formed in a low-profile pyramid shape. Hidden inside the dome shade is a powerful halogen bulb and silver reflector. The lamp is equipped with a foot switch dimmer, so the brightness can be adjusted from mellow mood lighting to a bold wall washing effect.

This Progress Lighting mid-century modern chandelier ceiling fixture is equal parts traditional and space age. The five-arm light fixture is made of shiny chrome tubular steel and holds clear glass globe hurricane shades. The arms swoop downward and sharply upward to a vertical position. Large chrome cylinders house the bulb sockets and hold the shades snugly in position. The fixture is hung by a 21-inch silver swag lamp style chain (links can be removed to shorten the fixture height). It’s a classy blend of traditional and modern, perfect for the dining room or entryway, but would make a bold statement in the living room, too. This mid-century modern chandelier was restored to excellent cosmetic condition with chrome polish, ultra-fine steel wool and old-fashioned elbow grease.
