Antler lamps and antler chandelier lamps have been a popular choice in lighting in ski lodges, log homes, log cabins, and rustic decor for many decades. It has now spread to urban areas; in particular, you can commonly find a deer antler lamp in penthouses, lofts, up-scale dining establishments, and high-rise condos.
Why are these distinguishable lamps becoming so popular? It is because they are unique in the fact that they generally use authentic deer antlers as a base for the lamp, giving off an air of rustic and southern charm. Deer antler lamps and log cabins seem inseparable. Another reason why they are so popular is because no deer is harmed in the process. A deer naturally shed's his antlers and the antlers that have been shed are used to create these rustic lamps. In fact deer, moose, and elk shed their antlers regularly, so there is no shortage for deer antler lamps.
Despite the rustic air of the deer antler lamp and chandelier, they still add uniqueness to any home, restaurant, or business. Another great thing about deer antler lamps and chandeliers is that no one is exactly the same as another. Moreover, they come in various types, such as white tail deer antler lamps, North American mule deer antler lamps, fallow deer antler lamps, elk antler lamps, and moose antler lamps.
White tail deer antler lamps tend to be the smallest in size, have a sharp curve upwards, and dense and lighter in color. Because the white tail deer antler is about one foot in length, these smaller lamps are ideal for lofts, flat-ceiling family homes, and studies.
North American mule deer antler lamps are the most common type of antler lamps.
