HOLLYWOOD REGENCY
 
Hollywood Regency Table Lamp at The Antique Lamp Co.

In the 1930's, when designers from Hollywood's Golden Age encouraged luminaries to decorate their home with overtones of glitz and glamour, a new design style emerged - the Hollywood Regency style. It was a favorite of celebrities ranging from actress Joan Crawford to the future First Lady, Nancy Reagan. Gold, silver, black and mirrored surfaces were popular.

But the style didn't end in the 1930's. It made a tremendous resurgence in the 1960's when post-war home owners strove to decorate their homes with luxe overtones of glitz and glamour. Large and over-embellished lighting fixtures were  en vogue.  The lamps are often imported from Spain or Italy and embellished with cherubs, gold, crystal and lots and lots of crystals and prisms.

Table lamps were sold in pairs with shades specifically made to match. Tall drum shades were are the most common style for such lamps and that were often as highly embellished as the lamp itself.  Both the shades and the lamps themselves were over-sized, often bordering on gaudy.

Chandeliers, on the other hand, were not always as over-embellished as their tabletop counterparts. However, they always had embossed detailing in a brass, antique brass or gold dorι finish with teardrop-shaped prisms.
