Shapes of The Wild & Wonderful Mid Century Lamps


General characteristics of many MCM lamps:

  • They may be a two tiered (or) tulip shaped fiberglass parchment
  • Flying saucer / satellite (Sputnik) shapes
  • Industrial styling
  • Starbursts
  • Jacks shapes (ball & jacks game)
  • Boomerang & Kidney shapes.

Many times they are adorned in extremely vibrant, bold and contrasting color combinations with wood or metal bases.  Exciting, right?
