Perhaps you fervently collect owl items, or you just love the idea of an owl lamp; either way, there are many owl lamp items out there for you to get your hands on! Owl themed home furnishings like lamps are often beautifully crafted, unique and magical to behold, as owls are often linked to things of a literary or mysterious nature, as well as fine intelligence and wit. An owl lamp is perfect for a child’s bedroom, and is equally at home in a lounge room.
Different Owl Lamp Designs
An owl lamp may have the base shaped as an owl (or two owls, or an owl in a tree), with a standard lamp shade, or it could an owl design on the lamp shade, with a simple base.
The All-White Owl Lamp:
It is a trend at the moment in the crafting world to create all-white home items or refashion old items by hand painting or spray-painting them white. Most neutral color in gloss or matte white finish looks stunning as part of an eclectic décor. A lovely white owl lamp is no exception, and there are many available on the market. A starting point for this search could be via Etsy, and other crafty such as owl necklace and owl ring, boutique stores online.
Porcelain Owl Lamp:
A classic lamp base material, porcelain is beautiful, easy to clean and it fits in well with most décors. Many vintage owl lamp styles will be made from porcelain.
Ceramic Owl Lamp:
Another style to consider would be a ceramic owl lamp. Unpainted, ceramics have an earthy, porous texture and look best in a creative yet down-to-earth style of home. When finished – or painted – the ceramic lamp can take on many forms, from slick, glossy and stylish to wonderfully and eccentrically retro.
Hand-carved Wood Owl Lamp:
A popular 1960s lamp style uses a chunky minimal owl shape as a lamp base. An alternate style of carved wooden lamp base is the highly detailed carved owl sculpture; perhaps of a knobbly tree with an owl perched high in the branches, or a meticulous sculpture of a owl with wings outstretched. It is likely that these one-off hand-carved art pieces would be quite expensive to buy, or commission to buy.
Owl Lamp Shades:
There are literally thousands of different owl lamp shade designs available on the internet. From the sophisticated, etching-like scenes of an owl in a tree at night, to the whimsical, to the brightly colored and bold children’s owl lamp shades. The owl lamp shade could be the only owl element of your lamp, or it could be yet another owl feature, for maximum owl-overload!
Usually made from owl-print fabric, some clever screen-printed designs actually allow parts of the design to shine brighter than others when the lamp is turned on, to great effect. Fabric lampshades are generally in the standard table lamp shade shape and occasionally a chic cylindrical shape. Not all owl lamp shades are made from fabric however; some are leadlight or painted glass, specialized paper such as French cotton rag paper, or even metal.
