Vietri Lighting and LampsVietri lamps are true luxury lamps for your home. They bring warmth and style to your decor and feature beautiful shades, finials, hardware and fine Italian pottery bodies. The Italian ceramic bodies of the Vietri lamps are hand formed and hand painted and custom made for the lamp in Italy. All shades are hand made and hand sewn in the United States to complement the Italian pottery base. Each lamp's cord is 9' long and each lamp features solid brass, chrome or nickel hardware. The finials are crafted using handcarved molds and feature designs that are exclusive to Vietri. The on/off switches operate very smoothly. These are not your ordinary lamps, they are high-end from shade to base. You will notice this upon your first use. The Vietri lighting collection currently includes four families of lamps: Rustic, Tuscan, Modern and Heirloom. The Italian lamps are sold in a variety of colors and style. The lampshades vary in color, material and shape and all lamp shades are hand sewn.
