Original Design lamps are also handcrafted with the finest materials and attention to detail, and certain features may be customized to suit your taste.  These lamps are not mass-produced but, unlike our Heirloom or Custom Creation lamps, can be replicated.  While we do 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 a real construction hardhat, in your choice of red, yellow, or white.  The lower light is mounted inside an actual barricade light lens.  You can opt for this bulb to flash or not.  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.
