The Dome Light combines a 100 year old refurbished oak base with a glass dome for a classic-modern lamp that fits in almost anywhere.

Starting August 14th, we will be accepting additional pre-orders for 

The Dome Light via our online store:

LunaCay.com

We would once again like to thank all of our pledgers and the staff at Kickstarter for making this a giant success!!!!

The Dome Light is made in the U.S.A. by a local artist and furniture maker with more than 30 years of woodworking experience.  The lamp features the practical and aesthetically pleasing combination of a hard wood oak base, a glass dome, and a vintage-looking nylon cloth cord.

When combined with a vintage reproduction 40W bulb, the result is a classic-modern lamp that does not get too hot for the touch.  Unlike a traditional shaded lamp that quickly falls out of fashion and/or needs to be replaced with new furniture, the simplicity of The Dome Light allows it to fit in almost anywhere.  It makes a wonderful living room or bedroom light and meshes well with design styles ranging from classic/antique to ultra-modern.

Unlike similar lamps which are often made outside of the country with substandard materials (1" plywood and veneer), The Dome Light base is almost two inches thick and made from 100% Refurbished Oak Lumber that was reclaimed by hand from two local sources (both of which are more than 100 years old).  

As a result of the vintage oak source, quantities will be limited.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

I already have the lumber for the bases and all large equipment that will be used in fulfilling the pledge rewards. Accordingly, the only foreseeable risk is that a slight delay may occur due to an unforeseen personal illness or delay in receiving packaging materials or electrical components. There is also an incredibly slight possibility that our reclaimed lumber may be damaged or made unusable by an unforeseeable occurrence (fire, storm, etc.). In that event, the rewards will still be fulfilled, but we may be required to use new FSC certified oak instead of repurposed wood if no suitable vintage replacement can be located.

FAQ

  • Yes! Due to popular demand we have expanded this offering for international shipping. International backers will need to pledge at the $145 International Level to cover substantially higher shipping costs.

    Last updated:
  • International lamps shipped to North America (Canada and Mexico), Europe (Netherlands, Denmark, France, Spain, Germany), UK, Japan, and Australia will be made to accommodate those countries' voltage and plug requirements. We can likely accommodate any other country's requirements as well. However, please contact us if your country does not adhere to one of the voltage or plug standards listed above.

    Last updated:
  • We have requested permission / clarification from Kickstarter for the allowance of add-on lamps in order to make a set. However, until we receive a response, we are requesting that you message us to receive instructions for ordering a second lamp.

    Last updated:
  • The domestic bulbs we are providing are being purchased from Restoration Hardware (and sold at a discount). They can also be purchased on Amazon.

    For international bulbs on the 220V standard, bulbs can be purchased on the local Amazon site, at a local lighting supply store, and/or through Alibaba.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, any standard 40W bulb will work.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, our cords and sockets are rated to accommodate the 220V/240V standard, so everything will look the same (except the plug). Because the light bulbs will have to be 220V instead of 110V, they will be sourced from a different provider, but will also look the same.
