With a lot of projects on the go and a lot of stuff happening at the shop, sometimes its hard to keep updating everything all the time. That's why aps like Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook are great for keeping tabs on what's going on with us.


We update our Twitter everyday with tweets ranging from newly restored antiques, interesting projects we've worked and fun and random lighting ephemera.


Our Pinterest features a range of old lighting catalogs, newly restored antiques and custom lighting as well as lighting and other things we find inspirational and really neat. We update that at least 4 times a weeks so there is always something new to see.


And Facebook.............we're on Facebook. Like us, friend us, and check out what we have online. We'll be sure to return the favor with a friend request and great content.



Historic restoration and a big thank you!

We would like to give a huge thank you to Father Eric Deprey and the parishioners at St.Clement Parish at St. Anne Church in Ottawa. We were fortunate enough to restore their historic sanctuary lamp which had been in storage for over 40 years.

Restored and hung just in time for Easter.  

Vintage Electric & Custom Creations

We love antiques and we love making antique style lighting. But what about modern antiques? One offs that are artistic and created with over 200 years of design history and over 50 years experience in making lighting. That's where our Vintage Electric & Custom Creations come in. Chandeliers, wall sconces, table lamps and pendant lights which are one of a kind pieces designed and crafted in our workshop.


No two are a like..........unless you want many and all are unique and unlike anything out there. Our workshop is one of the best in Toronto and we can make things others can't. From what we have in here to custom creations with your ideas, we can do it all.


This section is only going to grow as we keep adding new, interesting and unusual fixtures.

Do you need a Desk Lamp?

Desk Lamps are a very special type of lighting.  Desk lamps function and act as task lighting, but they really can pull a space together and create a beautiful focal point.  Desk Lamps often travel with you from home to home, and the right one can last a lifetime.  We currently have many desk lamps in our showroom.  Here is just a small sample;

All of these lamps and more can be seen on our website;
