Floor Lamp

I build quite a few table lamps – this is the first floor lamp – 56” high.
Done in Memphis style using various woods and plywood, stained and painted. When on, the light shines down on the floor around it, out through the random holes behind the perforated metal sides, and up through the top
layers of edge lite acrylic and bounces off of a mirror on the bottom side of the wood top cap.

I like this very much. I would love to see a photo of it lighted. I bet it is dramatic.

A very beautiful design and execution, Terry. Job well done!

I see you’re from Bend, OR …... an area of Oregon that I miss more than others. A fabulous place to live and do your work.

Great lamp that edge lite acrylic looks nice when sun shines through it so I can imagine how much more beautiful this lamp looks lit up.

This looks great! Perhaps Memphis in the selection of materials, but overall it has a very Art Deco styling to it. Looks excellent. Any pictures of it lit?

Stunning!!! or, as I said to myself when I saw it, “that is WAY cool”. I too would love to see a pic of it lit up in a room, both to see how the light tranforms it, and also to get a real sense of it’s scale.
