Our Original Design lamps are also handcrafted with the finest materials and attention to detail.  Each is typically built to order so certain features may be customized to suit your taste.  Original Design lamps are never mass-produced or stockpiled.  Unlike our Heirloom or Custom Creation lamps, these lamps can be replicated.  While Artifacturing Construct may offer these handmade lamps in multiple quantities, certain styles, such as our Java-Joe, may vary slightly, from one-another.


Construction Zone lamp with yellow hardhat shade

This is a dual-light lamp that looks great in an office, man cave, child's room, or living room.  The top light's shade is a real construction hardhat, in your choice of red, yellow, or white.  Inside the real barricade light lens, the lower light is mounted and you can opt for this bulb to have the capability to flash.  The handcrafted oak base comes painted white and orange, as shown.  The 4-position, rotary switch controls both lights independently.

The Construction Zone lamp can be customized with a company name or a company logo on the base.  If you like, you can even have us modify your own company hardhat to be used as the shade.
