The Lighting Craftsman

Posted by

A couple of photo shoots ago we came across the Lighting Craftsman shop in SOHO that custom makes brass lamps.  They do beautiful work and I thought you might want to know about them:

  • I've been in there, they have beautiful stuff!

  • Hi Kevin; I purchased some pendant lighting from Jay and needed a few more...just found out that his store closed...any chances you would know where to find him?...thanks...Philippe

  • Does anyone know whether The Lighting Craftsman -- which my research shows shut in May 2012 -- has reopened somewhere else, or where to find them?? I had them make two fixtures for me in fall 2011, and went back for more, only to find the business closed and the phone number no longer in service. So sad....

  • They have disappeared. Left some lamps for repair before they left that location. Any idea how to contact them?
