Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Lift Lamp

We've been fans of vintage light fixtures for quite some time, but the price was always a huge barrier to entry for us. If we can rip down some drywall, mount brand new recessed cans and put bulbs in them for a couple hundred bucks, why should something that's as old as we are command an equivalent price? Schoolhouse ... continue reading

ZAL Creations Lighting

Despite what the name implies, a man cave needs good lighting. So if you’re still using the same $10 Ikea lamp (okay, free since you technically stole it from your roommate) from your first apartment, it’s time to grow up and get something with a bit more personality (and maybe apologize to Dave for stealing his ... continue reading

Lightin Beer Lamps

Outside of DIY windmills, BB gun targets, pyramid building and impressive feats of strength, we didn't think there was anything useful to do with beer cans. Thomas Stanley Design proves us wrong again with their Lightin Beer Can Lamps. The concept is so simple it's brilliant. Take one larger aluminum beer can (Guinness ... continue reading

Magnetic Switch Cover

When you're running late and you have somewhere you absolutely have to be, you will always be incapable of finding your keys.

Beatty Light

The idea of a guy firing a gun at some tin cans evokes images of overalls, pieces of hay propped between lips like long ashy cigarettes and the frequent yelling of the word "boy."  Assuming we ever found those tin cans by chance off some dirt road, chances are we wouldn't think, "Hey, this would look great in my ... continue reading

Spacewalker Junior Lamp

Perhaps movies like Independence Day have made us a bit fearful of what extraterrestrial life might bring to our planet.  The little buggers are always shown blasting ray-guns at our historic landmarks instead of, say, coming in peace with a few cold ones.  We can tell you this, if some little guy wandered into ... continue reading

Pulz Billiard Ball Wooden Pendant Lights

It's sad that smokey old pool halls are disappearing at a rate faster than even a magic 8 ball could predict.  Where former bars of bottom shelf whiskey, lurking sharks and nights of debaucherous  fun used to stand now are Walmarts and Sonic drive-thrus.  Even if you don't have the space for a table in your place ... continue reading

KAWS Lightbulb Set

We have this inherent desire (read: need) to upgrade everything around us - even if it isn't exactly necessary. Dishwashers end up supercharged. Cars get spoiled. Offices and closets get Van Goghed. But once we got our spirally, super green CFL bulbs we thought we were done with lightbulb upgrades. Turns out we were ... continue reading
