Our Story

Company founder kate sbuttoni holding ginger jar table lamp

As an interiors enthusiast, I am passionate about unique, authentic, hand-made ceramics & fabrics. I'm also a huge fan of ever-elegant blue & white.

When it came to seeking these elements in a table lamp, however, the options I found were less than illuminating.

As for 'ginger jar lamps' in particular, these were mostly high-end antiques with a hefty price tag, or modern reproductions, which just didn't appeal.

I wanted something with a 'wow' factor, that no one else had, and which would stand the test of time.  And when it comes to lamp shades, being a colour lover, I just can't get enough of bold, bright fabrics, which you won't fail to notice from our rainbow-bright range.

We have a collection of classic white shades too, for those who are a little more cautious with their palette.

After many months of scouring and sourcing, testing and tweaking, The Ginger Jar Lamp Co. was born. It's in keeping with a quote that is dear to my heart: "Create the things you wish existed" (And so, I did!).

We make limited-edition table lamps which make a stunning style statement.
