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.
