thank you for checking out my project!  

please note: international shipping is available! - please email me for an exact quote.

for the past 10 years+  I have been in the "custom" world where I have been fabricating furniture and cabinetry tailored to a specific function and aesthetic worked through with the client. this project is a step away from that world.

the Mill lamp is one of  the first small object designs that I have done and I am very excited to showcase this on Kickstarter!

as a fabricator as well a designer,  our shop maintains complete control over the quality of all of our designs, and this lamp is no exception!  all wiring is done to UL specifications, and all lamps are thoroughly examined before being packed and shipped. all packaging is environmentally-friendly and "drop" proof to ensure a safe delivery to your home.

all of the wood used in the production of these lamps comes from the highest quality FSC certified lumber and finished with a non-toxic hand rubbed danish oil. the shade is white linen.

our goal:  to bring this lamp into as many homes as possible as its success will help keep the overall production costs lower allowing us to develop more new designs that stay within financial reach.

Risks and challenges

the risk of self-producing is nothing new to me. as an owner of a small and elite cnc-based fabrication company, the freedom of producing your own products is always balanced by the cost of maintaining very expensive and labor demanding equipment. with the success of this campaign, we will have the necessary funds to outsource to bigger manufacturers at higher quantities while still being in tight control of quality as it moves through the filter of our own very well equipped studio. in addition, upon a successful campaign, we will also build a new website and marketing campaign featuring this design as well as a number of others, allowing us to bring all of the designs directly to the customer at a better price!
