Looking Glass Lighting

Certainly not new, but still a favorite, Mercury Glass lamps work well  to bridge styles. They can be modern, or traditional. Glass is sleek, but not hard like a metal would be. Things that have a dual nature always appeal and have more interest.
The shade is a great place to play with color and texture like in this lamp from Jamie Young,
The burlap texture on this version from shoptablelamps.com is a nice contrast.
If there is enough contrast in shape, a mix of mercury glass can be used together pretty easily. This ribbed version from Robert Allen is set off nicely by this urn version from Lumen Lamps.
