Clayton House Marketplace

While the rest of the gulf south frantically filled up their gas tanks and bought emergency supplies, i moved a bunch of my furniture and lighting designs into a new shop in Covington, Louisiana called Clayton House Marketplace.  It wasn’t until the owner of the shop said something about a mandatory evacuation in Grand Isle that I realized that something was going down and that Isaac was heading our way.  So, when you get back from wherever it is you take your hurrication, stop by the Clayton House at 1600 Collins Blvd in Covington to peruse the myriad of furniture, crafts, and interior decor from many different vendors.  Their phone number is 985-892-6368 and they are open M-F, 9-4.

The DWR Lamps

These are the three lamps that will be at Design Within Reach this Thursday for the party and throughout the weekend. I use old-school braided cloth-covered wire in my lamps, and here is also a photo of a reel of cloth wire i bought recently at a junk sale. It would be awesome to be able to go to Lowe’s and pull a roll like this off the shelf. Actually, cloth wire is available on the internet new, check out Sundial Wire if you are interested. Not cheap, but it is a good product with lots of colors to choose from and really lends that vintage look to lamps and fans and what not.

The Lamps are Coming…

I’m making a slew of new insulator lamps, been putting it off for a while as I focused on furniture.  just finished milling all of the bases, now I have to make the tops where the insulator and then wire them.  They will be done soon, then some will go to shops, others to Etsy.  If anyone out there ever comes across these kinds of light fixtures (called schoolhouse fitters), let me know!  Always on the look out for them.
