Tripod Floor Lamp #1: Introduction

01-07-2020 06:03 PM by Ross Leidy | 3 comments »

I was casting about for ideas for a floor lamp, and I stumbled across this Mid-Century Modern gem. I say “stumbled” because with all the google powers I could muster, I was only able to find two sites that had example photos of the lamp (here and here) so running across even one image in the first place was fortunate. The tripod lamp is attributed to Alder Design in Boston, MA in the 60’s. I couldn’t find anything about the company, and assume they went out of bus...

Walnut Bent Lamination Floor Lamp #1: the design

09-20-2008 04:06 AM by bfd | 16 comments »

Here is the first of two new projects I am currently working on. This is a commision that I received for a floor lamp. After several revisions here is what we finally settled on. FritzM of LJ made the suggestion of eliminating a base detail I had and having the the uprights flare out to form a tripod and the client loved that idea. Thanks FritzM! I gave my client a short list of woods that I could build this out of and he left it up to me so I selected walnut. Here is a shot of the ...
