We give you 3 good reasons to love vintage Murano lamps

Vintage Italian Murano glass lamps are something very special that have really hit the mark in Denmark and the rest of the world. We can't get enough of their eye-catching shapes and colors. We give you three good reasons to love them.

Function and sculpture that merge

We have fallen in love with the Murano lamps with their striking colors and different shapes. The glass lamps from Italy can do more than just provide light in the living room on the long winter days and dark evening hours. We think vintage Murano lamps are a feast for the eyes and we can't get enough of them.

The lamps are popular, but perhaps we should say popular again, because they are not new lamps. We have to go back to the 1960s and 1970s, where most vintage Murano lamps sold today are from. They are beautiful and graceful with their soft, round shapes and eye-catching colors and patterns. You will find them large and small, as a table lamp, wall lamp and ceiling lamp. In between, they are both whimsical and fun to watch. There is a Murano lamp for every taste. A lamp that stands out in every way and probably most of all resembles a sculpture.


We cannot emphasize enough that we love vintage Murano lamps. You get a lamp that makes you happy. Whether it's with its elegant swirl pattern or eye-catching colour. You will not find any similar lamps that are both functional, act as a beautiful sculpture and are even handmade. The vintage Murano lamps are mouth-blown, and that makes them absolutely a piece of art. No two lamps are the same, each lamp is unique. Wherever you place your Murano lamp, you will notice that it gives a personal touch to the home. This cannot be avoided, as each lamp has its own personal touch.

We love the Murano lamps because they are functional and provide a good, nice and cozy light and at the same time are a beautiful lamp, whether it is on or off.

A world of colors and shapes 

The glass lamps from Murano are available in many varieties and perhaps this is what makes the decision-making process both exciting and difficult when choosing the lamp that will do well in the home. They come in different forms, but most with a soft expression that is not to be stood for. The most popular is the mushroom lamp, which is shaped like a mushroom and has a continuous swirl pattern in the glass.

We cannot avoid the fact that, in addition to the recognizable swirl pattern, the simple white, strong blue and strong pink are the colors that are most in demand for the mushroom lamp. The lamp was originally designed in the 1970s by Gambaro e Poggi for Vetri and only in a limited number. The idea with the mushroom lamp was to design a lamp that would appear unique in people's homes, and that still holds true today. We dare say that the mushroom lamp, with its unique shape and enduring popularity, has become an icon.

The ceiling lamps as both pendant and ceiling are also available in a multitude of colors and patterns, but the most colorful are, as with all Murano lamps, difficult to acquire, especially in vintage condition. There is a lamp for every taste, and you will find them with swirls, vertical stripes or even silver and gold inclusions.

If you like eye-catching colors and special shapes, it is clear that the Italian Murano lamps have regained their popularity, and we understand why. They are inspiring and atmospheric, whether you place the lamps in the living room or the bedroom. We like to see when the light is allowed to shine through, because then you can see the real craftsmanship and the details in the glass that make each lamp so unique to look at, and so they spread a good mood in both young and old .  

Craftsmanship through generations

You will not find two identical Murano lamps. You will find two lamps that are similar.The lamps are handmade and the craftsmanship has been passed down through generations for over a thousand years. We only think that the generation-heavy craftsmanship is one more reason to fall in love with the lamps from Murano.

It gives a very special feeling in the body when you know that the lamp you are holding in your hands was handmade more than 50 years ago. Some of the lamps are older and others newer, but nevertheless it gives a very special feeling that the glass has such a strong history. A glassblower enters a master's apprenticeship and is trained as Il Maestro, the master, after which the glassmaker masters advanced techniques and the production of patterned and colorful glass productions.


The combination of Murano lamps' historical origins, the personal manufacture and the nice exterior, we must conclude, is an absolute draw when it comes to the regained popularity of glass lamps.
