Minimalist Oil Lamp Renovation In Black Chrome

Tue, Dec 9, 2014 | Lamps

Sometime in your life you’ve probably seen an oil lamp but today I think no one or almost no one uses them. They are usually very good-looking with shiny brass details and wavy, ruffled-looking glass. Castor Design has revamped the oil lamp for modern times by stripping away all unnecessary adornment and leaving a simple cylindrical shape that has a black chrome finish. Oil lamps normally last way longer than today’s plug-in variety due to not having wiring. The oil lamp also outlasts candles, which burn down destroying the original design. So, try this cool retro-inspired yet very modern and minimalist design and amazing durability!
