A humble material that can skew surprisingly elegant, terracotta is an ideal material to consider when shopping for table lamps.

Enter Neutral Territory with Terracotta Lamp Bases

Most of us are familiar with terracotta’s pinkish-red earth tone thanks to the ubiquitous terracotta flower pot. Like terracotta pots, terracotta lamps are versatile pieces that can easily fuse with a wide range of styles and color palettes. A vintage terracotta lamp can make a striking statement when paired with a crisp, all-white palette, or it can easily play opposite rich jewel tones. Whereas a brown or black table lamp can sometimes create too jarring of a contrast, a terracotta lamp is a neutral skin to camel or beige.
