Crazy Lamps Built with Unlikely Materials

When it comes to constructing lamps, there are a handful of materials that are commonly used. Your standard lamp can be somewhat predictable and typical. However, before you go thinking that all lamps are uncreative and boring, here’s a handful of lamps we’ve found that are built with unlikely and random supplies.  A lot of these lamps might even inspire you to embark on your own do-it-yourself lamp project. If that’s the case, don’t hesitate to check out the different parts we have on our website to help you out.

What Lamp Part Do I Need?

Unless your lamp is really a candle in a candle holder, chances are there's more then just two pieces which make up your lamp.  And believe it or not, but there are unique lamp parts of all shapes and sizes, models and makers.  One lamp part doesn't necessarily fit the next lamp over.  Therefore it takes a bit of work to identify which party ou need.  Often times when lamp owners contact us they are clicking around trying to find the right part only to get lost and/or send us emails.  And we're always happy to answer them, however the answers are likely going to come out in questions like these:

  • What brand of lamp do you have?
  • Does it have a model number?
  • Have you identified the broken part?
  • About how old is the lamp?
  • Can you send us a picture of your lamp? Pictures are worth a thousand words, right?

That's the beginning of our conversation.  We can then narrow down the lamp and put a list of product numbers together we know that manufacturer used.  After all, lamp manufacturers are like any other business, they tend to use the same parts over and over again, until they find an item to improve and/or reduce the cost of making it. It's all about the bottom line.
