Before & After


Ages ago I ordered these very tall Barbara Cosgrove wood lamps for the shop and found them to be extremely drab. I had custom granite linen shades made, using coral scalloped ribbon trim, and lacquered the bases in a high gloss Chinese Red. Wah-Lah..

They lasted exactly one minute on the floor so I didn't get much time to really enjoy them but luckily I snapped a few pic's as they went out the door.

Here are a couple of vintage lights I am currently loving at the store...




I prefer vintage pieces to most of the lighting out there but refinishing a new lamp and designing a custom shade can make it equally unique and give it that special one of a kind feeling.

Get inspired!
