Several artists across the ages have been inspired by flowers, petal, leaves and other natural resources which they have captured in their paintings and sculptures. Paul Hennigsen did the same in 1958. An architect, writer and critic by profession, Hennigsen designed a lamp which became a favorite with interior decorators of all times and across nations. Artichoke Lamps, with some minor modifications, are still the most sought-after lamp category.

The original masterpiece was designed with steel and copper. Modern manufacturers have used different kinds of materials such as, plaster, mold and bamboo, to make it more accessible to all.

Artichoke Lamps: How to Choose?

These lamps are available in a variety of materials and colors in the market. Therefore, follow certain tips to choose the perfect one for your home.


Purpose: Do you want the lamp to be the centerpiece of your home? Where will you display it, in the living room or in your bedroom? These questions would determine the design and the price range. A night or a table lamp can be simpler, whereas, if you plan to place the lamp in the living room to enhance the decor, it must be more ornate and spectacular.

Decor: Room decor is crucial to selecting an artichoke lamp since the theme of the room will determine the color as well as the material. For a futuristic decor, you can choose a lamp made of stainless steel or copper. For a traditional setting, a bamboo counterpart would be ideal. Also, you can consider changing the color of the light according to your room decor. White light would go well with a contrasting color decor and yellow light generally suits all interiors.

Price: It is best not to settle for the cheapest Artichoke lamps in the market because it might mean compromising on quality. Also, remember that price is not the yardstick on which to measure the quality of any product. Therefore, it is best to choose from an online dealer who will offer you the benefit of discounts. An online manufacture does not have to bear the additional costs involved in setting up an offline company. Therefore, a popular company may give you a share of the profits.
