Announcement   If you've never seen what light does when it shines through wood veneer you will be amazed. Photographs cannot reproduce the beauty that comes to life when light meets genuine veneer. It must be experienced firsthand.

I wholesaled wood veneer lamps for a Spanish manufacturer for several years; We never had to push these lamps because there was nothing else like them. Designers and architects were clamoring for them. No one had combined the beauty of natural cathedral veneers with light like this. During that time I got to know the materials and products very well: their strengths... and weaknesses. But we had little control over quality or lead time, which often spanned a few months. And if a model or finish was discontinued, or if there was an error in production or something arrived broken... well.... it was awful trying to explain to clients that their lamp wasn’t coming on time, or worse, not at all.

Now I’m using what I learned to design, fabricate, and distribute my own veneer lamp creations. I can also repair veneer lampshades or replace the veneer altogether with my own materials. Best of all I can offer more veneer types, colors and custom modifications than before, and in a fraction of the time. My experience with these materials increases daily as I evaluate new veneers, UV protective materials, dyes and techniques. I'm constantly looking for new components and finishes to make interesting combinations. A limited 2 year warranty is available on all products and repairs.

In time, I hope to display each lamp in almost every suitable veneer and color I can get my hands on. Obviously that won’t happen overnight. As I come up with more designs, and improvements on the old ones, the possibilities seem endless!

SO... for unique and custom wood veneer lamps that arent priced like european imports, and can be made to order in as little as a few days, in a mariad of colors and veneers, Transfigure Lighting is your source. Let me show you THE BEAUTY OF VENEER IN A WHOLE NEW LIGHT!

I love the light. I put a 60w bulb in it like Dano suggested and the light it casts in my new dining room is incredible. My only complaint was the delivery time which he explained was a quality control issue. He said he didn't want to ship something less than perfect which I completely respect but it took 6 weeks to ship instead of the 2 weeks advertised. No big deal really. I am super pleased with the light. Thanks

Dano made our lamp in SCARLET and it is just stunning! He made a lot of effort to communicate the progress and to arrange the perfect time to ship. Wonderful service and experience!

I came up with the name TRANSFIGURE from the first few verses of the 17th chapter of Matthew. The appearance of the veneer is transfigured by the light in the same way Christ was transfigured in the midst of the disciples. Okay, maybe not quite as impressive, but you get the idea.
That being said, I feel I’m held to a very high standard of business ethics. I try to keep my policies, and my conscience, clear. If you ever have concerns… let me know. I'm big on communication so don't be shy.

Please read my payment, shipping, and return policies before you commit to buy.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
Right now the easiest and fastest way for me is Paypal. I will accept personal or business checks, but I don’t promise to ship your item before they have cleared. I’m open to other pay services or forms of payment. “COD”… not so much.

I expect payment, and / or reasonable communication within 24 hours of your commitment to buy. If you make an error, or change your mind, I’m generally willing to void a transaction. I believe anyone who is really interested in my lamps will have important questions and not just make an impulse purchase. If you ask those questions beforehand I will always try to give you all the information you need to make a well informed decision. I'd rather not make a sale than let you order something that wont fit your needs or expectations.

If i fail to acknowledge your order or payment, there's a chance I am unaware of it. Feel free to remind me for confirmation.
Shipping
LEAD TIME. If the fixture is already completed it will ship within 2 to 3 business days. If I have to make it, it could take 1 to 2 weeks. On rare occasions it could take longer but I will always advise you of delays and give realistic expectations.

PACKAGING. I use recycled materials whenever possible, as long as they will adequately protect your merchandise. I am very careful and experienced at packaging these fragile fixtures. Most likely your outer carton will be new, but please specify if that is important to you.

SHIPPING DISCOUNTS. Florida destinations will likely merit a shipping discount. For all others, depending on the items and quantity you purchase, (and the method of shipment) I may offer a discount on shipping. Each transaction will be assessed on its own merit.. Express shipping must be negotiated before purchase.

SHIPPING METHODS. Default shipping is FEDEX GROUND, which takes between 2 and 5 business days almost anywhere in the lower 48. FEDEX GROUND includes insurance and tracking will be provided via email. Processing the shipping label requires a contact phone. (If you are uncomfortable with giving me your number, I will use my own phone number but this could cause delays should there be an error in your address or some other delivery issue.) A signature will always be requested. If you waive the signature request, you may not be compensated for damage or loss (see below). Any other shipping method needs to be agreed upon prior to purchase.

INSPECTION. Everyone knows what “CYA” stands for.
*** No matter who delivers your purchase, open it and inspect it immediately***
I do my best to protect these fragile creations during packaging, but carriers can be careless, negligent, and, on occasion, lazy. Protect yourself by opening and inspecting your purchase right away (while the delivery person is still there if possible). Follow these simple steps and everyone will be happy:
1. Look for tears or punctures in the carton. If there is obvious damage to the carton, don’t sign for it before examining the contents. (If the carrier won’t wait, refuse the package and call the company… and me).
2. Inside, look for holes, cracks, or creases in the veneer. Check to make sure the canopy is not damaged. If your fixture incorporates plexiglas, make sure it is intact and not scratched or cracked.
3. If someone else will be receiving the package for you make sure they have this information.
4. If there is damage, notify the carrier AND ME, as soon as possible. Delays in notification increase the chances that no one will be legally held responsible for the damage. And neither of us wants that.

*Shipping damage must be reported to me within 2 days.*

CUSTOMER PICK-UP. You may arrange to pick up your purchase at my shop in Pompano Beach, FL for no charge. I welcome you to come and see what I do.

SHIPPING OUTSIDE THE LOWER 48. Requests to ship to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Canada will be assessed on a per case basis. I will not arrange for export to other destinations. If you live anywhere else, you can purchase, but will have to make all arrangements to have your package imported. I will provide legal paperwork and cooperate with your agent for no additional charge.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your purchase it can be returned for full purchase price credit towards another purchase, or refunded minus a 20% restocking fee. I may reduce or wave the restocking fee (at my discretion) if I feel that I can sell the item quickly. Purchasers will pay for all shipping costs. Credits will not expire and will maintain the value of the fixture should there be a price increase, making it inflation proof. If your returned lamp was $300 and the price goes up to $350 your credit will increase to $350. As far as I know, no one else will do that for you.

Items will only be accepted for return if they meet the following criteria.
1. The buyer must notify me within 1 week of receipt that he/she intends to return the item, and receive an RGA # to be marked on the shipping label. Credit or refunds for merchandise returned without an RGA request and/or acknowledgment will not be honored.
2. Customers have 1 week from the date of RGA to ship the return.
3. Packages must be insured against damage or loss. We cannot credit customers if uninsured merchandise is lost or damaged during shipping.
4. Fixtures must be complete. At my discretion, costs affecting credit or refund will be assessed accordingly for missing parts.
5. Carefully repackage your fixture. Merchandise must show no signs of installation or modification. Items which show signs of installation or modification will be credited minus the cost for work/parts required to bring the fixture back to new condition.
6. Items must be returned in original packaging. An additional $10 packaging fee may be assessed if an item is returned without original packaging.
Additional policies and FAQs
Let me know if you think i missed anything.

I provide a 2 year limited warrantee for any new fixture and a limited 1 year warrantee for any repaired fixture from another manufacturer (covering the repaired/replacment parts only).
Full warrantee information will be shown here within a few days..
