This is a unique, sculptural uplighter by Eugene Printz.

It is on display at the Salon de l’Asie (aka Salon Lyautey) in the Musee des Arts d’Afrique et d’Oceanie in Paris, France.

French designer and master furniture maker Eugene Printz (1889-1948) designed this striking room. The luxurious parquet flooring is made of Gabonese wood, ebony and rosewood, with the furniture and doors made mostly of palmwood.

As with traditional Art Deco the main source of decoration is the distinctive pattern of the wood itself, enhanced even more by the piece’s cleanly curving form.

Frescoes depicting Asian scenes, dark red velvet curtains, and geometrically patterned windows give the salon a distinctive French Art Deco feel.

The uplighters themselves look like stylized trees, enhancing the exotic look.

I would love to visit the museum one day and see the lovely furniture pieces which represent a style I truly am enamored with.

3D Visualization

I love the lamp’s design! It is not just incredibly beautiful, but also practical. I could imagine putting a pair of Art Deco armchairs on each side. The lamp would not just provide light, but also an occasional table for coffee or laying down a book.

Here is my 3D model of this gorgeous uplighter.

“This distinctive lamp…is made of palmwood and has a trumpet-shaped top. The shelf near the base of the lamp serves as an occasional table.” (Excerpt from p. 402 of Furniture: World Styles from Classical to Contemporary by Judith Miller, Dorling Kindersley, 2011)

Get the Look

I selected some floor lamps with an Art Deco touch to them. They are sure to add a dose of Art Deco glamor to any modern home.

Double Shelf Space Saver Floor Lamp

With two ebony wood-finish shelves, the Double Shelf Space Saver Floor Lamp embodies the multifunctional feature of Art Deco furniture. The shelves could be used to hold magazines and collectibles while the lamp lights up the space. A brushed steel base is topped by a cylinder fabric shade for a chic, contemporary look.

Kathy Ireland Espresso Deco Trophy Floor Lamp

The Kathy Ireland Espresso Deco Trophy Floor Lamp has an espresso wood finish, brushed nickel metal accents, and a linen cone shade. I love the sophisticated design!

Lite Source LS-80290 Olina Floor Lamp

With a leather pole and white grid patterned shade, the Lite Source LS-80290 Olina Floor Lamp would look great next to an Art Deco club chair, or any armchair for that matter.

Adesso Espresso Floor Lamp in Walnut

The Adesso Espresso Floor Lamp in Walnut is an hourglass-shaped beauty. It has a walnut finished wood base and a fluted, frosted glass shade. This lamp has so much presence it would look stunning standing by itself.
