Here at Village Vintage in San Luis Obispo, California, we're thrilled to offer a wide selection of vintage lava lamps. These iconic lighting fixtures have been a favorite of groovy decorators for decades and continue to be a popular choice for adding a touch of retro style to any room.
Lava lamps were first invented in the 1960s by a British engineer named Edward Craven Walker. He was inspired by a homemade egg timer filled with wax that he saw in a pub. He worked on the design for several years and eventually developed the first commercial lava lamp, which he called the "Astro" lamp. These lamps quickly became a sensation, and the concept and design has been replicated and improved upon since then.
Vintage lava lamps are beloved for their mesmerizing and hypnotic movements of wax, that creates a mesmerizing effect in the room. They come in a wide variety of colors, sizes, and shapes, so you can find the perfect one to suit your style and decor.
We carry a wide range of vintage lava lamps, from classic Astro-style lamps to more contemporary designs. Each lamp is unique and has its own story, and we believe that they are not only functional lighting fixtures, but also conversation pieces that can add a touch of nostalgia and character to any space.
At Village Vintage, we strive to bring you the best selection of vintage lava lamps, and we carefully inspect each piece to ensure that they are in good working condition. However, if you're looking for a more modern version of this retro classic, we also carry new lava lamps for purchase at Village Vintage and Shop Blackwater in downtown SLO, which still offers the same mesmerizing effect as the vintage ones but with updated design and technology.

Our team will be more than happy to help you find the perfect vintage lava lamp or any other vintage lighting option that would fit your style.
