Mica Table Lamps

Design Tips:

  • Use a pair of table lamps on a console in the foyer to create a warm, welcoming entry for guests and family alike.
  • Never exceed the recommended lamp wattage from the manufacturer of the table lamp for safety.
  • Select a Mica table lamp with an oil rubbed or antique bronze lamp base for a traditional look.
Our lighting collection features a wide range of table lamps, including Mica table lamps. Today's Mica table lamps reflect the design history of Mica lampshades that goes back to the late 19th/early 20th century and the Arts & Crafts design movement. Looking for natural elements to inspire and be incorporated into the simple designs, Arts & Crafts designers used the mineral Mica to create luminous, semi-translucent lamp shades. With a different look than glass or fabric, Mica table lamps add a soft glow to whatever space they are in, be it a hotel, restaurant, living room or bedroom.

Styles

Today's Mica table lamps were inspired by the designs of the Arts & Crafts movement, Mission, Prairie School and Craftsman, as well as Art Deco and Modern styles. Mica shades tend to run from deep amber to golden yellow, to cream and even silvery greens. The warmth of the Mica shade lends itself well to deep, rich finishes like oil rubbed bronze, antique bronze, brass or copper as well as black. Mica table lamps come in a range of styles and finishes as well as shapes and sizes. Nickel and satin nickel finishes give Mica table lamps a more modern feel, while antique bronze adds a lustrous patina. Mica shades also range in styles, shapes and sizes to suit most styles of lamp bases.

Applications

Mica table lamps can be used in both commercial and residential lighting designs, including hotels, restaurants, bars, offices as well as various rooms in the home. Mica table lamps, along with Tiffany table lamps, bring visual interest as well as light to a space, making these great table lamp choices for living rooms, homes offices, studies, dens, kitchens, foyers and bedrooms.

Mica first became a popular material for lamp shades in the late nineteenth century. The Arts & Crafts design movement saw this quartz like mineral being used as semi-translucent sheets for lamp bases in bronze and copper. Typically made with thin layers of Mica held together with shellac, Mica lampshades can be found in warm, golden amber hues as well as creams and other lighter shades. The natural mineral has a pale color that takes well to tints in the shellac. Mission and Craftsman styles are also historical styles that used Mica lamps in interior décor.

Pictured here is the Quoizel Mica Leaf traditional table lamp with a beautiful Mica shade. The warm, oil rubbed bronze finish on the base gives this lamp a traditional style that recalls antique table lamps with original Mica shades. The Mica shade on this table lamp has a neutral tone with green and earth tone accents that nicely complement the rich hues of the elegant traditional style lamp base. Combining traditional style with a Mica shade gives this lamp a vintage feeling that is both classic and nostalgic. The leaf pattern on the shade adds a natural element that feels more modern—perfect for today's traditional style interiors.
