Pipe and Pulley Lamp

Pipe and Pulley Lamp

Item #181 – SOLD

Made from reclaimed 2x4s, a little bit of salvaged galvanized pipe, some vintage chain, and a small pulley, this lamp is truly one of a kind. Detroit is known for industrialization and innovation, and this Pipe and Pulley lamp creativity captures that essence. We gathered all the materials from various abandoned homes throughout North-central Detroit and had a great time constructing this functional and artistic light that is sure to be the focal point of any room.

Junction Light

 Junction Light

Item #173 – SOLD

Some friends of ours recently bought an abandoned restaurant in North Detroit and gave us a call to come and go through it with them. While making our way through the basement we came across a whole assortment of goods and discovered that the restaurant must have been a hardware store at one point. Among the pile of goods we found this old junction box and decided that it would make a really cool table lamp. So we grabbed some scrap reclaimed wood and began designing, cutting, drilling, and constructing this industrial style light. Complete with a vintage wood finish and cord flip switch this lamp is good to go functionally and aesthetically.

Brass Pyrene Extinguisher Lamp

Brass Extinguisher Lamp

Item #167 – SOLD

We have said it before and we stick by it; basements have great stuff. Almost everyone forgets about the basement and over the past several months we have found great stuff tucked away in the dark damp corners of abandoned home basements. This beautiful vintage brass Pyrene extinguisher is a wonderful example of awesome things found in basements. Caked in grime and worn by years of none use this extinguisher needed some serious help if it was ever going to see the days of its shiny beginning again. So we carefully went to work polishing and cleaning the brass and the result is amazing! Preserving the originality and value became our top priority so instead of drilling holes and running a lamp wire through the extinguisher itself we decided to gather up some reclaimed wood and build a custom frame around the extinguisher then run the lamp cord through an old hose and wrap that around the lamp. Thus we kept this vintage brass beauty unharmed and created a stunning lamp at the same time. This little piece of history can now make a wonderful and functional addition to any home.

Flashlight & Helmet Lamp

 Flashlight Helmet

Item #166 – SOLD

We discovered these two little gems just blocks away from each other in Central Detroit. Although covered in dust and grime we could see the glimmering metal lines and new each piece had potential. The 1950’s flashlight cleaned up nicely, but would sadly never again work to illuminate the darkness on its own. So we stripped out the inside and wired in a small flip switch then secured the flashlight to a reclaimed wooden base. Once that was done we simply had to figure out attaching the vintage metal hardhat, and thankfully we had a broken lamp shade from the trash that would work perfectly. A few more pieces and a little bit of paint completed this truly original lamp and paid homage to the years of history they reflect. Now these everyday safety tools can make a wonderful addition to any desk or table.
