Short and "Suede"

July 09, 2011 12 Comments

I've had some people ask me if I am going to make any more lamps, since I sold all of the ones I made on etsy. A few people also asked if I was going to make shorter ones, for smaller spaces. It turns out, if I make the lamps about 20" shorter, shipping drops big time. So, I started messing around and made this prototype (48" from the wall) and decided to try out flat black for the paint for a kind of "suede" finish. I don't really save any money or time by making it shorter, but the shipping difference is pretty significant. I will lower the cost somewhat though since they're shorter. At 48", it's still a very functional lamp. What do you think? Anyone want one? I hope so cause I have some almost ready to go.... I've been trying to get some cosmetic things finished up in the house so I can take some decent photos of the rooms, and have a place to display the etsy stuff I'm working on. I also recently started "tweeting" so if you use twitter and want to talk or hear about my mishaps, building mistakes, or other stuff that doesn't make it on the blog, follow at your own risk.... @one_forty_three

Hey, they’re beautiful, and I think I actually prefer them shorter.
How much are those gonna be then?

Cheers!

I would very much consider purchasing one of these. I was sorry you ran out of the first lot before I could buy one. But I really liked the other bulb. Any chance to adapt this one? Price?

Yes please!
If I can’t have the original, a well crafted hand made piece will totally work!

I think I want the bigger one. Have you ever used Greyhound to ship? Think it might be cheaper…

I’m interested in a white one. Would also be interested in seeing you try to DIY a Serge Mouille lamp or two.
