lighting so important in a home?
the easiest way to change the mood and atmosphere in a room. It doesn’t matter
how you decorate your home, if your lighting is harsh and cold, no one is going
to be comfortable. Home lighting should be done in layers that can be adjusted

Where did the
inspiration for this Pennyweight Goods piece come from?
I have been doing a lot of
metal work lately, which gave me the opportunity to try some variations on the
classic mid century “Potence Lamp.” This was an effort to create a smaller
swing arm wall lamp. Since it swings 180 degrees, it can serve as a light
source for multiple areas, and the pivoting shade gives you the ability to
direct the light right where you need it without getting glare in your eyes.
