Filaments: New Lamps, Antiques & Restoration

Pin it button big

Nesting? Fixing? Both? Showcased in New York Mag's Best of New York last year, Filaments specializes in restoring vintage lighting from the last century into the middle of this one.

The take away: if you have a beautiful old lamp that is in terrible shape, Randy Howard (the owner) can bring it back to life. Mr. Howard once turned an old piece of dental machinery into a lamp for a customer. His thoughts on the matter: "Was it my personal taste?" asks Howard. "No. Was he happy? Yes."

Citysearch gives it 3 reviews, two of which are positive: ...many lamps that are moderately priced, especially if you are looking for a retro modern type lamp but don't want to spend thousands on a vintage restored lamp. Definitely worth a stop.
