About

Handcrafted in America from salvaged black walnut wood, this naturally stunning accessory will provide soft and relaxing lighting, artfully charge any phone or tablet, organize your possessions while lasting through generations.

A smart and practical yet elegantly simple piece with the heft of a heirloom - that’s the TimberHarmony Dock Lamp. This stunning base, made and polished by hand from solid black walnut wood makes perfect place to store, recharge and display your items in one-of-a-kind style plus doubles up as a lamp. It is a mega-functional sculpture for any desk, nightstand or entry hall that combines fine materials, craftsmanship and environmental consciousness.

Smoothly sanded and hand-rubbed with natural oils and beeswax to accentuate the grain while sealing and protecting its beauty, it's now ready to become a rustic, elegant and stylish home for any smartphone, tablet or ebook reader, watch, keys, jewelry or glasses. TimberHarmony combines clean lines and simple functions with the warmth of walnut and will become a single place to charge and display your favorite possessions while offering warm and inviting lighting.

Everyone needs a place to keep their personal items at the end of a long day. TimberHarmony makes perfect place to store and recharge your items in one-of-a-kind style. At 15" long and 9" wide, it is large enough to accommodate the items we all use every day: watch, wallet, keys, glasses, jewelry and so on.

In addition to being a cool place to park your personal belongings at night, it is a convenient place to charge your devices. Whether you're an Apple or Android fan, we'll make the dock and wire opening to work flawlessly with your device(s) with or without a case. At the end of funding period simply let us know what device you're using and we'll make it fit like a glove. Wire is not included.

In addition to serving as overnight shelter for all your important stuff, TimberHarmony is also a lamp. Whether you'll choose Edison-style lamp or go with Mason Jar compatible base with LED (which allows for endless flexibility), TimberHarmony will offer soft and relaxing lighting all night long.

TimberHarmony is available in two sizes - with charging dock or without. If you'd like to be able to charge your phone or tablet and organize your belongings - choose TimberHarmony Dock Lamp. If you'd like to simply use it as a lamp - choose the smaller version - TimberHarmony Lamp.

Every tree is unique and so will be every TimberHarmony. While all will be carrying same general characteristics (overall size and thickness), no two will ever be the same in terms of shape of live edge, color and grain pattern, making yours - truly yours. 

TimberHarmony Dock Lamp can be made to house any phone or tablet whether with case or without. Once Kickstarter project is over, you'll be able to specify your device(s) as some devices are thicker and some will require larger opening for the wire (such as 30pin connector). 

On top of being available in two size, TimberHarmony is also available in two lighting choices: 

Rugged and reserved yet sophisticated and timeless. High-end brass socket with twist-on twist-off switch accompanied by light bulb from the beginning of last century. Warm and relaxing light compliments deep walnut colors perfectly. Socket can accommodate any standard bulb should you choose to try different looks.

Simple yet ridiculously effective construction that allows for unlimited amount of possibilities.

Don't be limited with lamp shades. Create your own ways to enjoy light. Illuminate objects, vases, plants, mason jars, flowers and more.

If you like to change your interior decor often or love Mason Jars, this is the one for you as possibilities are truly endless here. We've used triple LED light source and integrated it into a base capable of accommodating ANY wide mouth Mason Jar to serve as lamp shade. Simply twist one jar off and replace it with another! It's as simple as that. Costing only a dollar or two, Mason Jars are very inexpensive and unique way to change the look of the lamp to accommodate your decor or mood or decorate for the holidays.

Additionally, you can remove the jar and replace it with a vase filled with flowers immersed in water to achieve a very soft and beautiful look. Experiment with different flowers to customize it even further.

Putting your small plants (such as bamboo) or favorite knick-knack next to the light will illuminate them and will create nice and warm effect.

LEDs are cool to the touch, will not burn or damage anything, consume close to no energy and will last over 20 years.

Each TimberHarmony Dock Lamp is made by hand from a salvaged, live edge solid black walnut wood and then hand polished using natural oils and beeswax making it a pleasure to display and handle. 

Term "salvaged" refers to healthy and beautiful trees that are cut down because their home was "re-purposed" for a new, in most cases commercial use. We save these gems from a fiery or wood-chipping future and give them new life. 

Term "live edge" refers to leaving the natural edges intact. Instead of cutting the wood into predetermined, rectangular pieces, aside from removing the bark we leave the natural shape (edge) untouched.

We have used only the best quality lamp parts available in the industry today that will last for years to come. Our brass light bulb socket is beautiful, unique and sturdy, made of cast brass and has a screw on base instead of the plated brass and snap-on base like cheap run-of-the-mill sockets.

Our LED features sleek, sturdy aluminum housing and CREE LEDs, known industry leader for brightest, most efficient LEDs available. LEDs last 10x longer than incandescent bulbs, 4-8x longer than CFL (compact fluorescent lights), do not contain toxic mercury, turn on at full brightness, and do not flicker. Based on average usage, LEDs last around 20 years.

We do not use harmful chemicals of any kind. Only best and 100% eco-friendly, natural ingredients are used to provide the final finish of every TimberHarmony. 100% pure, melted beeswax mixed with natural linseed oil and orange oil highlight wood's natural grain while sealing and protecting its beauty.

TimberHarmony is handcrafted right here in Miami in our studio and we are ready for the next step, so we can bring it to as many homes as possible.

After a long search and countless interviews, I have found a skilled wood shop here in Miami that does nothing but custom, exquisite quality wood work for 3 generations. They are ready to make the TimberHarmony to my exact specifications and highest standards.

All of the money raised will go straight into production of your lamps immediately after project completion, with the first batch of 100 scheduled to be made and shipped in 30 days.

Not only TimberHarmony Dock Lamp is elegantly simple, mega-functional and gives new life to salvaged trees, but we also work with a non-profit to plant a new tree in a non-logging location for every TimberHarmony we sell.  

                     

Shipping within the Continental US is free!

Shipping to AK, HI, PR and Canada is $25.00 and may determine a later arrival date. 

INTERNATIONAL: 

TimberHarmony is made to be compatible with North American electric outlets. We'll be happy to ship internationally, but you might need to make some minor adjustments:

Edison-style lamp - you'll need to install new plug according with your country's standards and purchase new bulb. 

LED - you'll need a simple adapter plug to enable you to plug North American plug into your electric outlet. It's being sold on Amazon for about $2 and looks like this:

International orders - please add $40 for shipping.
