Original Design lamps are also handcrafted with the finest materials and attention to detail.  Certain features may even be customized to suit your taste.  While these lamps are not mass-produced, they may be replicated.  Although we offer these handmade lamps in multiple quantities, certain models, like our Java-Joe, may vary slightly, from one-to-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 shade is an actual construction hardhat, in your choice of red, yellow, or white (other colors are available upon request, for an additional cost).  The lower light is mounted inside a real amber barricade light lens.  Depending on which lamp you choose, this bulb will either flash, not flash, or you may opt to be able to select whether it flashes or not.  Each handcrafted oak base comes painted white and orange, as shown, and the 4-position, rotary switch controls each light (top and bottom) independently.

The Construction Zone lamp can be customized with a company name or a company logo on the base.  You can also provide us with one of your own company hardhats, to be modified into the shade.

Java-Joe with Canvas Tent shade 01

Java-Joe lamps are crafted from the iconic Thermos Brand, ribbed aluminum flasks of the 40s, 50s and 60s.  The glass liner is removed and the bottom is weighted for stability.  An on / off / dimmer control is fitted into the sidewall of the Thermos body, and the original stopper is modified to function as the control knob.  We currently have the Java-Joe lamps available in both 18 inch (pint size), or 22 inch (quart size) heights.

Although any top spider-style lampshade may be used, we custom-make four unique designs, exclusively for our Java-Joe lamps.  Our standard size shades measure 7" high by 10" wide, available in the fabric designs shown below.  We also offer custom designed and/or sized shades for our Java Joe lamps.  Contact us for custom options and costs.
