A true classic stands the test of time. Columns go back to ancient Greek architecture and are still popular today. Cast-iron architecture reached a pinnacle of creativity in the 19th century, gracing commercial districts from Glasgow to New York City. A salvaged Corinthian pilaster from that era was the model for this lamp ($1,195). Restoration Hardware replicated its fluted base and decorative scrolls in exacting detail. A distressed painted finish captures the timeworn grandeur of the original. This floor lamp will add a timeless touch of class to any room.
