The kerosene lamp was invented in 1853 by Ignacy Łukasiewicz, a Polish chemist and pharmacist, and later an entrepreneur and a social worker, coming from an impoverished noble family from Podkarpacie. He made Poland and Poles famous with this invention and it was this invention that changed the world and started the era of better lighting available on a large scale.
Today the fashion for kerosene lamps is returning. Although we have access to electricity, the lighted kerosene lamp gives the interior a unique charm and vibe, which cannot be achieved with an electric lamp. Handmade of high quality brass, glass, and sometimes natural stone lamp is an artistic product, which is an extremely noble accent in the interior. It perfectly adorns stylish interiors and, as part of fashion for eclecticism, it also blends in with contemporary and even modern interiors, introducing an intriguing accent and a breath of nostalgia.
