When it comes to American lamps, we have to mention American culture. As we all know, the United States is a typical colonial country and a new immigrant country. Its history can only be traced to more than 200 years. At 16- In the 18th century, Western European countries successively invaded North America. The French established New France, the Spanish established New Spain, and the British established the first colonial stronghold in 1607--- James City has since established 13 colonies along the Atlantic coast. The United States came into being under such a historical background. Some of the people who arrived in the colonies were working people in Western Europe, and some were nobles, landlords and bourgeoisie, others are those who escaped the scourge of war and religious persecution, as well as blacks trafficked from Africa. In the process of immigration, these people also brought the culture, history, architecture, art and living habits of different countries and regions. Over time, these different cultures and customs began to absorb each other, mutual integration. So as to give birth to a unique culture, which is different from other parts of the world. Among them, the United States is representative. American lamps and lanterns are also deeply influenced by this culture. Many American lamps and lanterns can see the historical epitome of profound Western culture on their furniture. Americans inherit the essence of these European cultures and integrate the characteristics of their own culture, thus generating distinctive American lamps. Most people's first impression of American lamps is thick, comfortable and concise. Indeed, comfort and simplicity are the first elements of American lamps. Also, the easy side of American lamps is its practicality. American manufacturers will divide American lamps into living room, dining room, bedroom, study, kitchen, toilet and other use spaces, and subdivide them according to consumer class and living type, with clear zoning, the pieces are compact and connected with modern life, and consumers can always choose the most suitable American lamps. American lamps include antique and neoclassical American lamps, unique country style, and simple and life-oriented American lamps. What we often mention are antique American lamps and lanterns of antique style, whose foundation is the lifestyle brought by immigrants from various countries in the late European Renaissance, it is a nostalgic feeling for Europe and a civilian variation of European royal furniture. With the rise of the emerging bourgeoisie in the Americas, they are not completely remoulded, but have a choice of European classical culture, reflected in American lamps, simplifying the ornaments that symbolize rights, pay more attention to practicality. As we can see now, the outline and shape of American lamps are also derived from European furniture, architecture, etc. It will not have large areas of carving and excessive decoration, and it is more comfortable to use. It can be said that it is more about the inheritance of style, appreciation and comfort. American lamps are often more durable than furniture that brings strong visual impact, more inclusive in design style, more practical and comfortable in use effectiveness, and feel closer to nature, so I feel more cordial. Because the United States is a country of immigrants who immigrate to various European countries, American lamps also contain elements of various European countries, including British classical Queen Anne style and modern British mission elements, there are also Baroque style of Louis XIV in France, Rococo style of Louis XV, neoclassical style of Louis XVI, and elements of Germany, Italy and Spain. So these elements are finally integrated in the United States. American lamps are based on the lifestyle brought by immigrants from various countries in the late European Renaissance, simplifying the cultures of Britain, France, Italy, Germany, Greece, Egypt and other countries, both function and decoration are integrated. We all know that most of the European styles are tall and magnificent. Like European buildings, they are resplendent and magnificent, inlaid with gold and silver, and only the royal family can afford them, then American lamps will make this royal style civilian. Americans can be said to be lazy; However, they are also very good at enjoying life. Every weekend, they will forget all the work pressure of the week, open their doors, return home and change into casual clothes, casually lie on the sofa, take a newspaper, have a cup of coffee, watch TV, eat with your family, and return to the natural life, therefore, the randomness and comfort of American lamps are its greatest characteristics. Unlike European lamps, which emphasize its fancy, it feels like a real home, not the feeling of still returning to a five-star hotel or an office, therefore, American lamps will be made more comfortable, allowing people to go home comfortably and casually.
