Generally, I'll isolate an object in order to highlight it's unique beauty. However, in the case of this monumental Blenko lamp, I thought seeing it aside other objects might help illustrate just how magnificent its size. Measuring 48" to the top of its large drum shade, this piece is indeed monumental. It was made as a part of Blenko's lamp line and was inspired by the company's large format floor decanters...as opposed to being converted from a vase to a light.

There is nothing quite like the fabulous vintage hand blown glass , the rare ceramics, and the marvelous mid-century modern furniture found at "The End of History". We opened our shop in Manhattan's West Village in 1997. Since then we have amassed more decorative objects from the 50's & 60's in one room than anywhere in the world. As a result we've become the go-to for top editors from magazines as well as a choice source to the best interior designers in the world. We will update this blog often... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
