Typelighters: Typewriters Doubling as Lamps
While we certainly do not need any more reasons to crave these treasures, vintage typewriters continue to showcase their timeless appeal (and usefulness) as they transition from typewriters into “typelighters.”
I spotted this show-stopping repurposed typewriter lamp in the home of the talented and timeless fashionista Courtney from In(side) the Loop, and I simply fell in love. How fantastic would it be to enjoy a cocktail and banter amidst the most intellectual light in mankind’s history? For more decor temptation, the incredibly stylish Courtney will be graciously opening her doors to us for an upcoming Room without a Key Tour!
For a more literal interpretation, consider installing a lamp right onto your vintage Royal typewriter. John Vanek was inspired by the “light” that would turn on when he typed on his portable typewriters, and voila – the “typelighter” was born!
