There is something singularly romantic about the hurricane lamp in a modern-day setting. Also called chamber lamps, these oil lamps were initially created by Swiss physicist and chemist Francois-Pierre Aime Argand in 1783. For its time, the hurricane lamp was a world-changing innovation; it burned brighter and gave off less smoke than the other types of oil lamps of the era. This innovation ushered in the manufacture of all sorts of new oil lamps.
