In the midst of placemats, table runners, crockery and glasses, the oil lamp makes its way to the top. The flame is a friendly and reassuring element that enhances moments of sharing. The oil lamp is therefore the ideal product to light up your festive tables, but also to make your private meals shine. In addition to the fact that this lighting is soft and natural, it is also efficient: there is no risk of wax staining the tablecloth. The flame will not go out in a gust of wind. The natural atmosphere created by the oil lamp will charm you and immerse you in a moment of suspended happiness.
A modern design oil lamp
The designer oil lamp is a decorative object and even a collector's item. Far from the traditional genius lamp, design lamps have a refined style that honours the flame and the lighting.
Eno Studio's Olie lamps, for example, are a condensation of purity. Through the glass of the jar, the fibreglass wick can be seen bathed in the burning liquid. A few centimetres higher, the wick has a soothing and relaxing effect. This model is available in different sizes. The three sizes available create a uniform look by playing with the height of the lamps. The height of the wicks corresponds to the height of the light.
In addition to these Olie lamps, you will find other models of design oil lamps:
The oil lamp has become a trendy and modern decoration object. But it is also part of the original gifts to offer. In this case, it is packaged in an attractive box and protected for transport.
Candles and oil lamps bring a special luminosity to a room or a terrace. They create a warm, romantic atmosphere and evoke well-being and serenity. However, there are important differences between the two products: the burning time, the life span of the product and the wind resistance.
To understand how an oil lamp works, you need to know what it is made of. The oil lamp is made up of three elements: a reservoir, a spout and a wick. Finally, we need to add one more element to this list: the fuel. All four elements are necessary and have their own purpose.
The old oil lamp is therefore a round or oval tank with a handle on one side to hold it and a spout on the other side. The wick, and therefore the flame, comes out of the spout. To make an old oil lamp work, you just have to pour oil into the tank to soak the wick. When the wick is completely soaked, it can be lit and the glow of the flame can be enjoyed instantly. The reservoir of old lamps, which contains the liquid, is usually topped by a lid. The cover is positioned in such a way that it prevents the liquid from spilling.
The ancient oil lamp has been around since ancient times, but over the years it has evolved until the arrival of the paraffin lamp in 1853. The paraffin lamp supplanted the oil lamp in everyday use. This was because paraffin is a more fluid fuel than oil and therefore rises more easily to the wick. Nowadays, the old oil lamp has been replaced by modern design models. Still using a reservoir and a wick, these lamps are truly contemporary objects of decoration. The light emitted by these lamps is soft and pleasant. The combustion of the wick is efficient and safe for your health.
An oil lamp needs a wick to function. This wick must be soaked in fuel in order to burn. For optimal use, it is recommended that the wick should not extend more than three millimetres. Here are the two main wicks available:
Fibreglass wicks are very resistant and have the particularity of not burning. It is therefore not necessary to change them regularly. Finally, the wicks have a different diameter: 3.5 mm diameter, 2.5 mm diameter, 3.7 mm diameter, etc.
The oil lamp needs a fuel to work. This fuel can be animal fat, vegetable oil, such as olive oil or rapeseed oil, or paraffin oil. At Pure Deco, we have chosen an ecological and natural oil:
