Announcement   Rediscovering architectural artifacts has always been fascinating to us. Repurposing and recycling these artifacts so they can be reintroduced into today’s homes is a passion. Objects of the past, some forgotten, some never noticed come alive again at our store, allowing these items to permeate back into our collective decorative needs.
The lighting is our base, we always look for interesting objects, some with a previous life as a lamp, some with other lives, but we always look for the interesting. We strive to have lighting that is timeless, that fits within a wide array of homes, for people who enjoy architectural antiques, industrial elements, and a general appreciation for one of kind house elements that are as functional as they are conversational elements. We look for customers who want to stop the big box shopping and step into something that may have a little more soul and personality that much of the products manufactured today lack.
Take a look at our artifacts, some are simple, just cleaned and put back out into the world to be used for another hundred years. Some are unusual, things that maybe never made it in their time, but decoratively or architecturally are interesting in today’s world, and of course some have been reconsidered, and will live those hundred years as a reincarnation equally as important as the day they were made.

About

The older, the rustier, the better

Objects of the past have a soul, they are survivors, inspirers, growers of innovation, and with a little know how, coaxing, and creativity they can continue to work in our homes for years and years to come. We find ourselves in a position to be coaxers. Our store is a direct reflection of our decorative likes and our quest to reintroduce items that would often otherwise be discarded. We look to industry from the past to help decorate homes of today. We have traveled so much of California looking for unique items that may be of interest to today's vintage minded patrons.
