We reject the cookie-cutter, mass produced tripod lamps.

Made solely for decoration, these off-the-shelf products lack the character, uniqueness and durability that we offer in our lamps.

Made from real antique tripods from as early as 1910, our lamps are always one-of-a-kind, always beautiful, and will always be a statement in your home. Their durability is demonstrated by their ability to weather years of use before conversion into lamps.

Thalhammer, Eastman Kodak, Albert Specialty Company and many other names are being forgotten over time, but the craftsmanship those artisans put into making tripods from the early to mid 1900s is appreciated now more than ever.

The Process


The Process


We source real tripods from around the world from various antique dealers and individual collectors.

These tripods were used by photographers, artists, and astronomers in their day and were built to withstand tough environments and years of continued use. It makes them ideal for conversion, and you can be assured of their quality. 

With each small scratch, scuff or mar, you can see the tripod's storied past that has shaped its journey to your living space. It is a look that can not be reproduced and is specific and unique to each lamp we make. 

Each tripod is inspected carefully before conversion and any repairs are made to maintain our standard of high quality. We do everything by hand, never by machine. All electrical is extensively tested before being sent to you.
