Deco Table Lamps. I admit it. I have a real soft spot for these lamps. These were the first lamps I designed in 1991 -when this photo appeared in New York Magazines' "Best Bets". The lamps were actually the first three prototypes that I made. (These designs were later picked up by the Whitney Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago and private collectors in NYC and Tokyo.)

Solid maple bases, hand painted, spun filament lamp shades and, one of my favorite parts, antique metallic fringe. (The lamp shown in the rear has no fringe but instead has a solid "gallery"). The fringe version is called the "Honolulu Deco"

Of course, we still make the Deco lamps and have many variations such as floor lamps, and chandeliers.
