One of the most luxe and charming of the Minka Lavery lines of lamps is the Minka Lavery Belcaro collection. These lamps have a very sexy neo-classic feel that is made modern by the use of wrought iron. What is most notable about this gorgeous line of lamps is the distinctive color of the glass lamp shells and shades. These range in color from egg shell to pink to burnt umber. The color of the Minka Lavery Belcaro glass is typical of the seashell and flesh tones that are more associated with shades at the turn of the century.
The Minka Lavery Belcaro style is distinguished by its very ornate fixtures which have designs that are reminiscent of an Aubrey Beardsley drawing. There are a lot of floral touches that make these fixtures adaptable to many different design eras including Victorian, Edwardian, 1940s style and contemporary neo-urban styles. These Minka Lavery Belcaro designs are popular because they are so versatile and do fit into so many different types of houses.
The distinctive retro Minka Lavery Belcaro style is available in many forms of lighting including table lamps, standing lamps, wall sconces, chandeliers, pendants, and outdoor lighting.
