Ford Script Table LampOne of America’s most famous brands has been lighting the way in the auto industry for more than 100 years. For years, Ford enthusiasts have been decking out dens, garages and man caves with Ford tin signs, neon clocks and related decor. Next up: a full line of retro-style table lamps sporting the Ford logo, slogans and classic rides.

The current version of the Ford logo – the Centennial Blue Oval – was unveiled in 20013. Now it’s showcased on a fresh batch of modern-style lamps (five in all!). Each design is a unique incorporation of the brand and looks cool when the light is on or off.  It’s easy to see these casting light in a game room, den or on the workbench in the garage.
