I currently have this special articulating floor lamp constructed of painted metal and brass by a designer who is considered one of the icons of MidCentury Modern Design. In its sleek, economical design, the furnishing is characteristic of postwar American style. Gerald Thurston (American) served as the inhouse designer for the lighting atelier Lightolier throughout the 1950s and 1960s. The name Lightolier is a portmanteau for light and chandelier. During this perioroughout the 1950s and 1960s. The name Lightolier is a portmanteau for light and chandelier. During this period, Thurston introduced a vast array of seminal works, notable for their sleek construction befitting of postwar American sensibilities. At the height of MidCentury Modern design, Thurstons aesthetic caught notable attention for its mass appeal. Due to this celebrity, allegedly, the designers right hand was insured at an unheard of onemillion dollars. Measurements It has a extending center section that make the lamp go from 44 in low position up to 70 inches fully extended. 22 in diameter. They came in many colors this is painted a oxblood red color with different applied patinas on the brass parts. Has the original socket cord and plug light cover all original. The color is thin on one part of the shade its always been that way and just give the lamp a more authentic feel. Look at photo to see what I am talking about. Fast and free shipping! read more
