William Haines Lamps


These days many vintage furniture dealers describe their lamps as "Billy Haines style," but this striking pair of circa 1959 green and black lamps, offered by Liz O'Brien, really was designed by Haines. Interesting lamps were a big part of the Haines look. The pair shown here was made from crackle-glazed porcelain vases mounted on lacquered wooden bases -- perfect for a room that needs a shot of rich green. Other signature Haines lamps were often made from ceramic horses and chinoiserie figures.
