About

Here at Lise Vintage Lighting I restore unique vintage lamps, lighting & candlelight from the 1940s-1980s—Mid-Century Modern, Vintage European, & Hollywood Regency to name a few. I have an aversion to mass-produced, mix-and-match anything, and I strongly believe in the importance of reducing the impact of humans on our planet. If I'm honest, I mostly have a passion for lovely vintage lighting, beautiful art, craft, & timeless design. My love of history plays in as well--I love to learn about a piece and share with my customers the story behind a design or its designer, the craftsmanship responsible for elevating a piece, the cultural history that makes a particular style or fixture iconic. Sometimes, the story shared by a lamp’s previous owner is its true treasure, such as the Murrano lamp that survived Hurricane Katrina. Or the Irmi nursery lamp that, according to its aged owner who cried as she willingly parted with it had “raised…

Sometimes, the story shared by a lamp’s previous owner is its true treasure, such as the Murrano lamp that survived Hurricane Katrina. Or the Irmi nursery lamp that, according to its aged owner who cried as she willingly parted with it had “raised two generations of my children and grandchildren” & now needed to “share all of that love forward” to another good family. (Yes, I cried too..!)

Customer service & safety are priorities here at LVL. I want you to be thrilled with your vintage lighting purchase. We can customize to your heart’s content! With regard to rewires, please consider that the vintage lamp of your dreams may be “to die for” but vintage wiring—not so much! Even if a lamp appears to be in perfect condition, an interior cleaning/inspection & a full rewire up to current safety standards is always performed & already included in the cost of each lighting purchase from LVL. Customized & safely rewired, recycled vintage lighting then becomes uniquely yours for many years to come!

If you don’t see the perfect vintage lampshade listed or in my back stock (they take up an enormous amount of space!), I am always happy to order lampshades for customers who prefer that their “new” vintage lamp arrive with a shade. I offer custom lampshade options as well. Drop me a convo if you’d like to know more! Lampshade advice & brainstorming, the pros/cons of each type of light bulb, & recommendations on where to find each--always free of charge!

I am proud that Lise Vintage Lighting is something of a family business. I do all of the refurbishing & a good portion of the rewires. My father, Alan, lends a hand with rewires as well. A retired business-owner who has taught me so much in the workshop, I am very happy to have his assist!

I love to work with designers & welcome wholesale inquiries from retailers who desire unique lighting for your own establishment. In addition to my shops I have extensive back stock of lamp bases, light fixtures, candleholders & candelabra in various stages of rescue & refurbishment (you’d be amazed where & in what shape I find some of them..!). I always have a selection of beautiful European pottery & glass lighting, Hollywood Regency & Mid-Century Modern lamps, pendants, & fixtures, repurposed TV Lamps perfect for accent lighting or nursery night lights, as well as an array of vintage candleholders. I always have MUCH more inventory than is listed & strive to maintain updated photos of my back stock of lamps, each just waiting to be customized & refurbished. Please inquire if you are on a search for something special so I may send you photos.

Thanks for visiting Lise Vintage Lighting! My rescued vintage lighting patiently awaiting renewed purpose—to illuminate a new home! Might its next home be yours..?
