Tv lamps originally would have sat on top of a…. tv, to cast a luminescent glow in the room. Please ask any questions. In the 1950s, much was made of the possibility that watching television in a darkened room could result in eye damage. Keeping in mind that consumers had been accustomed to watching movies in darkened movie theaters, it was only natural that the tradition would transfer to home viewing. The earliest televisions were also rather low luminosity, making low-light viewing a genuine benefit. It wasn’t long before many of these televisions were topped with a new adornment, a ceramic, back-lit statuette… It was felt that the ambient light generated by these lamps reduced eye strain, permitting guilt-free viewing. Soon TV lamps became a must-have addition to the family television, positioned front and center, rather like a hood ornament on a 50s-era automobile. While their reign as a favorite piece of home decor only lasted about 10 years, they possess a significance in design that is an influence even today.
